Old Fashioned Ground Beef Stew
This is my recipe for Old Fashioned Beef Stew. I have nurtured and tweaked this recipe over the past 30 years and have it perfected. It is hearty and delicious. Mmmmm. A true classic. Nothing is more inviting!
This makes a HUGE pot of stew. You can divide the recipe in half if you don't need as much. We like to make a big pot and eat it over the course of a few days.
Old-Fashioned Beef Stew
2 lbs. ground beef
8 lg. potatoes, diced
2 cans corn, drained
2 cans peas, drained
2 cans green beans, drained
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans tomatoes, do NOT drain
1 can carrots, drained
1 sm. can tomato paste
1 box beef broth
2 beef bouillon
3 c. water
2 T. chopped onions
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
In a large pot, brown your ground beef with the chopped onions.
Parboil your potatoes. Parboiling is just partially cooking your potatoes. To parboil them, just peel the potatoes and dice them into bite-sized chunks. Fill a pot with water and add the potatoes. Bring them to a light boil. Boil the chunks for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes, turn off the heat and remove the potatoes from the pot and add them in with the cooked hamburger meat.
The next part is easy. Put all of the rest of the ingredients into the pot, stir and turn on the heat to medium-high.
Cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve. I like mine with homemade skillet corn bread.
