How to Make Homemade Beef Stew

When it comes to hearty and delicious comfort food, beef stew often tops the list. For those new to the kitchen, learning how to make homemade beef stew can seem like a daunting task. But fear not, with a few easy steps, anyone can make a hearty beef stew that\'s sure to impress.

First, we\'ll cover the importance of properly preheating the oven and preparing the beef. Then, we\'ll move on to heating up the skillet and partially cooking the beef. Next, we’ll dive into adding other ingredients and achieving the perfect blend of flavor. We\'ll also cover how to simmer and cook the stew in the oven to achieve that perfect, tender texture. Finally, we\'ll serve up a piping hot bowl of homemade beef stew that\'s sure to satisfy any craving.

Preheat Oven and Prep Beef

Preparing beef for beef stew is the first step in making delicious homemade beef stew. The process involves preheating the oven and prepping the beef to ensure that it cooks evenly and retains its flavor.

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to about 350°F (175°C).
  2. Cut Meat: Cut the beef into bite-sized pieces, taking care to remove excess fat and gristle.
  3. Season Meat: Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of each piece of meat.
  4. Browning Meat: Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Sear each piece of meat on both sides until browned.
  5. Remove Meat from Skillet: Remove the meat from the skillet and place it in a large, oven-safe pot or Dutch oven with a lid.

To ensure that your beef stew comes out perfect, always use quality ingredients like fresh vegetables and quality cuts of meat.

Searing meat before adding it to the pot adds flavor and depth to your stew. You can also add other seasonings like paprika, cumin, garlic powder, or chili powder when searing your meat. Choose whichever seasoning pairs well with your recipe.

If cooking beef were a dance, this step would be the cha-cha – quick and partial!

Heat Skillet and Partially Cook Beef

To start the process of cooking beef stew, the recipe calls for heating a skillet and partially cooking the meat. This step is crucial in creating a savory flavor in the dish while also ensuring the proper texture of the beef.

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  2. Add a small amount of oil or butter to coat the bottom of the skillet evenly.
  3. Place bite-sized chunks of beef into the skillet and let cook for several minutes on one side until browned.
  4. Using tongs, flip each piece of beef and allow it to cook until browned on all sides, usually another two to three minutes per side.

This process creates caramelization on all sides, imparting a deep, rich flavor that will carry throughout the dish.

When partially cooking beef in a skillet, it is essential not to overcrowd it. Doing so will result in steaming rather than searing and browning. It\'s better to work in batches if necessary or use multiple skillets if available.

Once fully browned, remove from heat and continue with adding additional ingredients according to recipe instructions.

It is common for recipes to call for using red wine or broth at this stage, incorporating any flavors released during browning by removing cooked meat with a slotted spoon and leaving behind any juices that accumulated while cooking.

Throw in some veggies and spices, because plain beef stew is just fancy dog food.

Add Other Ingredients and Mix

To continue with preparing the beef stew, it is now time to combine and mix the other ingredients into the mixture.

  1. Start by adding in your broth or stock to the skillet
  2. Stir in your vegetables. This could include onions, carrots, celery and garlic.
  3. Add in any herbs or spices like bay leaves, thyme, rosemary or paprika for flavor.
  4. Stir everything well until all ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Once everything has been mixed well, we can then move on to the next step of simmering and cooking in the oven or crockpot. It is important to thoroughly mix all ingredients so that each spoonful of beef stew contains a balance of all flavors. Additionally, this step ensures that all ingredients cook properly throughout the mixture.

As a bonus tip for this recipe, try adding in some red wine for a deeper flavor profile. Don\'t miss out on indulging in this hearty and comforting meal with loved ones.

Stick that beef in the oven, let it simmer and stew, grab a beer and relax – your dinner\'s almost due.

Simmer and Cook in Oven

To complete the beef stew, the recipe requires a step that involves gently heating and cooking it in an oven over time until the ingredients are cooked. This method is commonly known as braising.

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350°F /175°C.
  2. Simmer and Cook in Oven: Place the pot in the oven without its lid and let cook for two hours.
  3. Check on it occasionally, stirring every so often.
  4. Afterward, remove from the oven, check for seasoning, adjust if necessary, and serve warm.

Additionally, this step helps tenderize tougher cuts of meat further since the slow-cooking process allows fat to break down and moisten everything in the stew. A source cited by beef experts claims that cooking lesser-known cuts of meat such as short ribs or shank enhances their flavors dramatically when simmered in an oven.

Serve up a hearty bowl of homemade beef stew and watch as your guests become too busy devouring it to notice the absence of a fancy garnish.


After you have followed the necessary steps to prepare your beef stew, it is time to present it in an enticing manner. The serving of your dish should be as important as its preparation. Carefully ladle the hot and steamy stew into bowls or plates, ensuring that it is adequately portioned. Garnish with chopped parsley or any other topping of choice before serving.

To enhance the overall experience, consider serving your beef stew with a side of crusty bread or buttered rice. A chilled glass of red wine could also pair well with this dish.

Remember to serve the beef stew while still hot for optimal taste and texture. Serve quickly after ladling into bowls to avoid losing heat.

For something unique, try presenting your beef stew in hollowed-out bread or baked potatoes for added flavor and visual appeal.

As a final touch, ensure that your guests are comfortable and seated before presenting the carefully prepared and well-served beef stew at the table.

Take your time, let the crockpot do the work, and come back to a delicious bowl of beef stew – the lazy chef\'s dream.

\”When it comes to beef stew, we all like it thick – except for those who don\'t, and they\'re wrong.\”

Thicken the Stew and Serve

To achieve optimal thickness in Beef Stew before serving, it is essential to apply appropriate techniques that will give the desired texture and consistency.

  1. Remove some of the cooked vegetables from the stew and puree them in a blender or food processor until they form a smooth consistency. Add the puree back into the stew and stir thoroughly. Ensure to remove any remaining solid chunks.
  2. Mix equal parts of cornstarch with cold water in a separate bowl until it forms a thick paste. Stir this mixture slowly into the hot stew and let it cook for an additional 10-15 minutes on high heat while stirring intermittently to activate its thickening properties.
  3. Add potato flakes or mashed potatoes to thicken your Beef Stew\'s sauce and simmer over low heat for an additional 10 minutes while occasionally stirring until you achieve your preferred thickness.
  4. Use flour, arrowroot powder, or tapioca starch as natural thickeners by mixing them in water first before adding them directly to hot Beef Stew\'s liquid while stirring completely. Let it simmer until you get the desired thickness.
  5. Allow the cooked beef on low heat for up to 15-20 minutes after removing most of its ingredients to let any excess water evaporate, which increases thickness. Use this method with caution as excessive heating can lead to burning or reduction of moisture levels and increase saltiness levels in case it has any added spices.
  6. Add beer, wine, or broth-based gravy sauce as an alternative way to thicken the Beef Stew\'s liquid ingredients\' overall consistency. Cook on low heat for about 5-10 minutes while steering carefully. This technique enhances flavor profiles extensively.

It is important to avoid using too much cornstarch or flour at once as these ingredients can result in a gelatinous texture that many people find unpleasant. Alternatively, monitor your broth\'s thickness to get the desired consistency before utilizing additional thickeners.

It has been noted that some individuals with gluten sensitivities utilize potato flakes to thicken their Beef Stew, an excellent alternative for those who have allergies or intolerances to cornstarch and wheat flour.

Get ready for a flavor bomb with this method, because bland beef stew is so last season.

The More Flavorful Method

A more taste-enhancing approach to preparing beef stew by using a slow cooker is what this section talks about. The steps outlined are more involved and require patience, but the resulting flavor is worth the wait.

  1. Prepare the beef by browning it in oil on high heat until each piece has a seared crust.
  2. Deglaze the skillet by adding an acidic liquid like red wine or beef broth and scraping off any stuck bits.
  3. Add all ingredients including veggies, potatoes, aromatics, and spices to the slow cooker. Ensure that all elements have been mixed thoroughly and set it on low or medium heat for six to eight hours.
  4. To thicken the mixture, ladle out a cup of stew broth and combine it with cornstarch slurry before fully stirring it into the crockpot. Let cook for an additional 10 minutes so that everything thickens.
  5. Serve hot optionally with bread rolls on the side.

If you have more time, use this technique instead of paragraph two\'s quick method for maximum flavor development.

When making beef stew many years ago, people used cheaper cuts of meat that took time to cook over fire stoves or open flames. The process was tedious but resulted in a robust flavor due to long simmer times.

Get ready to show that beef who\'s boss with some serious browning skills.

Prep Beef and Brown It

To prep beef and brown it means to get the meat ready for cooking by cutting, seasoning, and browning it before adding it to your stew.

  1. Cut the beef into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Season the beef with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add vegetable oil.
  4. Add the seasoned beef to the skillet and cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes or until browned on one side.
  5. Use tongs to flip the beef pieces over and continue cooking until browned all over, about 2-3 minutes more.
  6. Transfer the beef pieces to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil before adding them to your stew recipe.

Before prepping your beef, make sure you have a sharp knife and your cutting board is clean. It\'s essential not to overcrowd your skillet while browning as overcrowding can make the meat release moisture and hinder browning.

In history, prepping meat for stews is an ancient technique that has been passed down from generation to generation. The method of browning meat was traditionally done in cast iron pans over fires in the past, and while technology has advanced greatly since then, the fundamental concept remains unchanged.

Deglazing the pan may sound fancy, but it\'s just a fancy word for scraping up all the tasty bits for your beef stew.

Deglaze and Add Ingredients to Crockpot

To prepare the beef stew in a crockpot, a crucial step is to deglaze and add the ingredients to the pot. This involves creating a flavorful base for the stew by loosening the browned bits of meat from the skillet and then transferring them along with other ingredients into the crockpot.

Here\'s a 3-Step guide to Deglaze and Add Ingredients to Crockpot:

  1. Remove excess oil or fat from the beef that has been browned in a skillet.
  2. Add onion and garlic to the skillet, stirring occasionally, until they are slightly softened.
  3. Deglaze by pouring a liquid such as red wine or broth into the skillet and scraping up any browned bits, then transfer this mixture along with additional vegetables and seasoning to crockpot.

It is important to ensure that all elements of flavor are included in this step. Gently pushing aside any stuck-on pieces while stirring will help uplift flavors further.

A unique detail worth mentioning is that deglazing also helps in thickening the stew by dissolving any starch or gluten that might have gotten stuck on the pan.

According to an article on The Kitchn, \”Deglazing isn\'t just about flavor: It also has textural benefits. When you hear sizzling sounds coming off your pan during deglazing, it means you\'re pulling up tiny particles of food – those \”bits\” we\'ve been talking about – that become suspended in your sauce, lending it body and thickness.\”

Incorporating deglazing while adding ingredients offers an authentic taste experience for homemade beef stew made in a crockpot. Thickening stew is like giving it a cozy sweater to wear on a chilly day – comforting and necessary.

Cook on Low or Medium and Thicken the Stew

To achieve the desired consistency of the stew, cook on low or medium until thickened.

  1. Step 1 – Begin by selecting a Crockpot or Slow Cooker that will allow you to cook on low heat for longer periods.
  2. Step 2 – After cooking the beef, add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly before placing in the Crockpot or Slow Cooker.
  3. Step 3 – Allow it to simmer, checking occasionally, until desired thickness is achieved.
  4. Step 4 – When ready to serve, add any additional spices or seasonings to taste.

When cooking on low or medium heat, check occasionally and stir as needed until the stew thickens according to preference.

Be sure to use a recipe that already accounts for this cooking technique.

Serve with a side of bread and a glass of red wine, because nothing says comfort food like homemade beef stew.


Once the beef stew is ready, it\'s time to present it on the table. Here are some tips for how to serve this comforting dish like a Pro:

  • Use a ladle to spoon the stew into deep serving bowls.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs or chopped greens for an extra pop of color and flavor.

  • Presentation is key; serve in attractive ceramic or glass dishes that accentuate the richness of the colors and textures.

Incorporate some seasonal produce variations such as using sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. Be sure not to overcrowd your dishes as doing so can impact their taste profile and presentation. Who needs a slow cooker when you have an instant pot?

Fun Fact: Bay leaves originated from Asia Minor and were known as a symbol of peace and protection by ancient Greeks and Romans.

You might just forget about the Instant Pot\'s existence while it works its magic on this delicious beef stew.

Close IP and Cook

To cook the beef stew in an Instant Pot, after seasoning and adding the vegetables to the pot, seal the lid tightly and set it to the desired cooking time. This will close off the Instant Pot and allow it to fully cook all of the ingredients at once. Once finished, carefully release any built-up pressure before opening the lid.

When ready to close IP and cook, be sure that all ingredients are properly mixed and ready for cooking before sealing the Instant Pot lid. Keep in mind that cooking times may vary depending on recipe specifics, so be sure to follow instructions closely.

To ensure optimal taste, always remember to deglaze your cooker between steps. Simply add liquid to your cooker (such as water or broth) after browning or cooking beef and scrape off any excess residue before moving forward with your recipe.

After pressure has been released from your Instant Pot, remove bay leaf before serving up a hearty bowl of beef stew. It\'s like finding the lucky charm in your beef stew – removing the bay leaf is the ultimate reward.

Remove Bay Leaf and Serve

To complete the dish, it\'s essential to remove the bay leaf before serving. This herb is quite hard and unpleasant to consume but has imparted its distinct flavor to the dish. The following steps will guide you through removing it like a pro.

  1. Locate the bay leaf in the beef stew.
  2. Use a fork or tongs to take out the bay leaf carefully.
  3. Discard or compost the bay leaf in an appropriate manner.
  4. Taste test your beef stew for seasoning adjustments before serving.
  5. Serve into bowls, garnish as desired, and enjoy!

When removing the bay leaf, ensure that all parts are accounted for by inspecting them before eating. Removing it becomes much easier if you tied herbs together with some kitchen twine beforehand, so they can be easily retrieved.

Did you know that once upon a time, bay leaves were used as medicine? They were believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and were also said to help ease symptoms of colds and flu.
