Here's an easy beef stew recipe that the whole family will love. This slow-cooking beef stew is a hearty dinner for a chilly night.


    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 1/8 tsp black pepper
    • 1/8 tsp paprika
    • 1 1/2 lbs stew beef, lean, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 Tbsp canola oil
    • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
    • 1 cup sliced celery
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
    • 2 cans (14 oz each) low sodium beef broth
    • 1 small bay leaf
    • 1/3 cup pearl barley
    • 2 cups sliced carrot
    • 2 cups diced turnip
    • 1 large baking potato, peeled and cubed
    • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed


    • In a bowl, combine flour, pepper and paprika. Toss beef in flour mixture until coated evenly.
    • In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and sauté until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, celery and onion and sauté 2 minutes. Add broth, bay leaf, barley, carrot, turnips and potatoes, and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
    • Remove cover and simmer, uncovered, until vegetables and beef are very tender, about 40 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Skim off fat. (Stew can be prepared up to 2 days ahead. Cool slightly. Refrigerate uncovered until cold, then cover and refrigerate. Bring to a simmer before serving.)
