Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Using a large stock pot, brown stewing meat in oil. Add onions and sprinkle flour into stock pot, stirring until flour is well incorporated.

    Advertisement
  • Fill stock pot with water. If you prefer a thick stew fill stock pot only half full, if you prefer a more diluted stew fill your stock pot within one inch of the top. Let meat cook until tender, checking frequently on water level. When water evaporates add more. Cook for 1 1/2 hours.

  • When beef is tender add potatoes, carrots and beefy mushroom soup. Cook for 30 to 45 minutes, or until tender.

  • In a separate bowl mix cornstarch and cold water. Stir into soup and simmer. If not to desired thickness add another mixture of cornstarch and cold water. Heat through, season with salt and pepper, and serve.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

A good base recipe however I made some changes by marinating the beef cubes with some salt & HP sauce - u can add more to the stew later on according to your taste. I also added garlic together with the onions after browning the meat & instead of just adding water I also added a can of campbell's french onion soup made from beef stock large egg noodles & green peas. Delicious! Read More

Thank you for this wonderful recipe! I added 2 celery stalks(sliced) 5 beef bouillon cubes and I couldn't find the beefy mushroom soup so I used a can of cream of mushroom. My family loved it even the kids. I took some to work to share and they all wanted the recipe!! Easy fantastic & reheated even better than when first made. I will absolutely be making this again! Thanks!!! Read More

Delicious but a little bland for my taste Had to add 1/2 teaspoon of salt for flavor. Didn't realize that recipe called for BEEFY condensed mushroom soup since it wasn't listed as so in the ingredient section. All in all a good and very filling meal! Read More
