Homemade Beef Stew-Recipe


I’m looking outside at the bit of snow that has covered the ground and roof tops.  It’s a brisk 25 or so degrees and, in my New England mind, feels just about right. Cool enough to make you take a deep breath once in a while. It’s good to be outside in the cold, isn’t it?

This kind of weather gives me the Christmas feel goods, like a clean, white, shiny kitchen wall feels clean. It’s refreshing and pure.

This morning, while the kiddos are sleeping in Jeremy and I are putting a tree up on our patio, wrapping it in red lights. I can’t wait to sit by the fire wrapped in scarves, coats and blankets, watching a breath and with a Christmas tree right behind us.

On chilly winter days like today, a pot of soup is just what we want. This Homemade Beef Stew is an easy crockpot recipe. Everything goes in the pot at once. The longer it simmers the better-an easy one to make in the morning and leave alone for the rest of the day.


2 Sirloin Steaks (frozen or fresh)

2 large golden or white potatoes

2 whole carrots

3 stalks celery

1 large onion

2 cups water

2 32 oz. Broth (chicken, beef or vegetable-any of them will work)

To Do:

  1. Pour broth into crockpot
  2. Place whole steaks in crock pot. Begin to simmer.
  3. Cut remaining vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Place all in crock pot.
  4. Let cook for at least four hours. Longer is fine-this would be great to come home to after a long day out.
  5. 30 minutes before eating, remove steaks and cut into bite sized pieces. Place back into crockpot and leave until ready to eat.
  6. Serve hot with Jordan House Popovers or homemade biscuits.

Happy Eating!
