Beef & Vegetable Stew

I make this stew at any time of the year.  The recipe which I am sharing today has everything you need, meat and vegetables and lots of gravy.

If you have a pressure-cooker, half all the cooking times given !  I use my pressure-cooker wherever I can as it cooks the cheapest cut of meat to such a tender stage in a very short time.

Other vegetables can be added or substituted, but I found this is a very nice combination.

I found this recipe on and it was submitted by Paula - sorry, that is all I have - I printed this some time ago and unfortunately have no other info, but if you know who it should be credited to, please give me a shout. { I did tweak it a little, though...}

Beef & Vegetable Stew

1 kg Cubed Beef {I used Rump}
2 TB Oil
3 1/2 cups Beef Stock
2 t Dried Rosemary
1 t Dried Parsley
1/2 t Freshly Ground Black Pepper

3 Large Potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 Carrots, cut into chunks
4 - 6 Celery Stalks, cut into 2.5 centimeter (one inch) pieces
1 Large Onion, roughly chopped
2 t Corn Flour
2 t Cold Water

1.) Brown the Beef cubes (in a large pot) in the Oil until sealed - add the Beef Stock, Rosemary, Parsley and Black Pepper - Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.
2.) Add the Potatoes, Carrots, Celery and Onion to the pot with the meat - simmer another 1 hour or until the vegetables are done.
3.) Mix the Corn Flour with the Water and add to the pot, stirring to combine - simmer 10 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.

Although the Beef stock is salty, do check if the dish has enough salt in to your liking before serving.

Serve with rice, mashed potatoes, polenta or whatever you prefer !


Linking to these cool parties:


  1. With the cruddy weather we're having here, I could really go for some of this :)

  2. Hello from Canada! Think I'll try this one, I'm getting tired of my usual beef stew recipe!

  3. I like to serve beef stew with salad and corn bread or home made biscuits with butter. This looks like a hearty and satisfying stew for me to add to my bookmarks. Thank you!
