Updated on September 15, 2019

Beef Stew Made Easy

If you like meat and potatoes your going to like this easy beef stew recipe. I enjoy experimenting while I cook. Sometimes you just don't have certain ingredients in the cabinets and you have to improvise with what you have. But, you have to make sure the spices and seasonings work together to compliment each other. There are many different ways to make beef stew. Today we are going to try it this way because it is easy.

So if you can't cook at all don't worry because today your going to make an easy Sweet and Tangy Beef Stew.

One of the Ingredient's is "Manwich Sauce".

What is the Surprise Ingredient today?

Manwich Sauce!

What you will need

Yup, Hunts Manwich Original Sauce

Don't freak out because of the Manwich sauce we are going to use. In my experimentation's I have found that Manwich sauce can be used for other dishes besides Sloppy Joe's! Besides, I didn't have any tomato sauce at the time and didn't feel like going to the store and all I had in my cabinet was the manwich sauce. Don't judge until you have tried it. Believe me you will like it. Let's get on with it there's only a few things you will need, so go to the cubbard and pull these items out. I'm sure there is no need to make a list and run to the store.


  • 1 package cubed beef stew meat or a small roast, you can cut up yourself, any kind of beef you want
  • 4 large peeled potatoes, cubed
