Bobaloos Easy T-Bone Stew Recipe
Try Bobaloo's Easy and Hearty Stew Recipe
I appreciate an easy-to-prepare comfort food meal at times. Don't you? Especially feeling tired or having a busy day? It was one such day my husband wanted beef stew. He must have realized from my expression I was feeling worn out so he offered to make it. What a surprise! He doesn't enjoy cooking.
After conversing a bit on what he'd like in the stew he started the first step by putting a frozen block of cubed T-bone steak in a dutch oven and peeling red potatoes. He continued brain-storming and created this recipe with veggies and barley he likes. Meanwhile I jotted down his rendition of this easy T-bone steak stew and snapped some photos. Don't miss his recipe below. Not bad for a man who doesn't like to cook. Actually. . . impressive!
When he had it in the oven we relaxed while it cooked. Dinner was ready before we knew it. . .an hour and a half. . .from start to finish. Pretty quick for stew, huh! We hope you will give his recipe a try. Even spice it up to your own taste. Enjoy!
T-Bone Steak Is a Tender Cut. No Bone In Put In the Stew!
Easy preparation, easy clean-up with a One-pot oven meal.
My Favorite Prep Paring Knife and Peeler Is Rada Cutlery. - Makes Peeling and Cutting Veggies Or Fruit Easy. Stays Sharp.
I love these Rada paring knives and peeler. That's why I'd strongly recommend them to you. If I am in another kitchen using a paring knife I feel so awkward. They seem of no comparison to Rada's. I've used Rada for years, they haven't lost their sharpness in all this while. If you hand wash them as I do, they keep their nice color. Very useful and sturdy.
Paring knives so reasonably priced, I thought you and your spouse could team together to prepare the veggies. :)
Ever Hear This?
Bobaloo is not sure where this phrase originated. I don't usually call him by this name, it's mostly when answering this question:
Know what I mean, Jelly bean?
Sure do, Bobaloo!
He Loves Red Potatoes
The man of my life, I'll call him Bobaloo here, loves potatoes in any shape and recipe. This stew has a good potato-e taste. Plus, by making his own recipe he could add beef which doesn't matter to me. The T-bone steak was quite tender in this stew.
Carrots And Celery Give Great Flavor and Nutrients
This Rada peeler works great for peeling carrots.

Dutch Oven and Skillet Lid All In One - Cast Iron Works Great For Stew And Soups
Why I Like Cast Iron Cookware
Cast iron is almost non-stick cookware. I like using it for that reason and it can be used on various types stoves, even outdoors on coals. This dutch oven with 10-inch skillet on top can do double duty. I'm told it is very useful and well-liked.
Veggies With Dried Onion
Looks Delicious - Thanks For Making The Stew Honey
Lawrys Garlic Powder With Parsley - A Good Addition To Many Recipes
This is what Bobaloo used in this beef barley stew. I use it in many of my cooked dishes.
Recipe For Bobaloos Easy T-Bone Stew
- 1 T-bone beef steak, cubed, fat & bone removed
- 1 1/4 cups hot water, (to add to meat)
- Approximately 7 red potatoes, cut in bite-size chunks
- 3 carrots, peeled, cut in angled small chunks
- 1 stalk celery, cut in 1/2 slices
- 1 cup hot water, (add to pot with veggies)
- 3 T. dried minced onion
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Cream of Chicken Soup, (used Healthy Request Campbell)
- 1/2 cup pearl barley, cooked separately
- garlic powder, (used Lawry's)
- seasoned salt, (Lawry's has no MSG)
- black pepper, to taste
- Additional seasonings, of choice to suit your taste
- We had frozen our cut-up steak. You can use raw fresh steak, if preferred. We added thawed (precooked, frozen) pearl barley to our stew during the last 15 minutes of oven cooking. You can cook your barley separately in a covered saucepan first for 50 minutes while stew is cooking, then add 1/2 cup to stew.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Put fresh cubed steak; or whole frozen block of steak cubes in a roaster or dutch oven. Add 1¼ cups water to the pan. Sprinkle with garlic powder and Lawry seasoned salt. Cover roaster and cook the frozen block of cubes, or fresh cut-up steak a half hour. (Meat is okay wading in shallow water unsubmerged).
- Meanwhile, prepare potatoes, carrots, and celery. Place in bowl.
- When meat has cooked 30 minutes, remove pan from oven. Uncover and skim out larger meat drippings (for appearance,) and break apart chunks of meat into water.
- Add prepared veggies and dried minced onion. Sprinkle a good shake of seasoned salt, and onion powder across the vegetables. Add 1 cup hot water. Stir. Replace lid.
- Return to oven and bake about 45 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender. Remove stew from oven.
- Stir in contents of canned Cream of Chicken soup and cooked barley. Add black pepper now (or use individually at the table). Keep uncovered and return roaster to oven.
- Bake 15 minutes to thicken sauce.
