Beef Stew

On Sunday morning my mom and I woke up bright and early and made beef stew together for my family to enjoy after church. I had never made it before, but it was fun and ended up tasting great!

Beef Stew

3 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon oregano

1 tablespoon basil

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1/2 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon celery seed

1/2 tablespoon paprika

1 pound stew beef (cut into 1-inch cubes)

3 cups water

5 cups cut-up vegetables (like potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery!)


1. Coat the beef with flour. Heat oil in  large soup pan on medium heat and add the beef; cook until browned on all sides.

2. Combine the spices in a small bowl and stir them into the pan. Add the water.

3. Bring to boil and cover. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add vegetables; simmer 45 minutes or until beef and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. (Thicken stew with more flour, if desired) Enjoy!


 Serve with warm, crusty, and buttered bread for a cozy Sunday lunch 🙂


  1. That looks like amazing comfort food! I need to try this…maybe thursday! I wonder if I could substitute chicken instead of beef, since I’m not a huge fan!
