Beef and Pepper Stew

Nuvita Biscuits

This a a filling beef stew that you can serve up for the family.


  • 2-3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 Onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 or 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 23 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
  • 1 ½ kg Beef chuck or roast, cubed
  • 1 litre beef stock
  • 2 Red or green bell peppers, chopped
  • 4 medium size carrots
  • Salt and pepper — to taste
  • 4 Russet potatoes, peeled and diced


  1. Heat the lard or oil in a large pot over medium-high flame. Add the onions and sauté until translucent and starting to brown. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 or 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in paprika until well blended.
  2. Add the beef, water or stock, salt and pepper and return the pot to the flame. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer partially covered for 1 to 2 hours. Occasionally skim any excess fat that floats to the surface.
  3. Add the chopped peppers and potatoes and simmer for another 20 to 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning and serve in bowls.
  4. Add some chopped carrots, green beans or cabbage to the simmering stew along with the peppers and potatoes if you like.

    I’d like to make a beef stew in my slowcooker carrots, potatoes and onion. What else needs to go in it (I dont have Worcestershire)? And for what duration?

    I want to make beef stew in a crock pot for about 5 people. But I would prefer not to use the packet of spices. I don’t like all the added ingredients that packet spices have, like MSG, ect. Does anyone have a homemade recipe that would work well in a crock pot???

    I’ve done Google searches and looked on several recipe websites…but I can find a really simple basic not a lot of random ingredients recipe.

    Can I just throw some meat, carrots, celery, peas, potatoes in a crock pot with some spices and canned broth and go? Or will it be too plain? I figured some salt, pepper, maybe onion powder, and some flour to thicken it up a bit.

    My husband wants a stew, and recipes in the cook books look too complicated for me.

    I made a nice beef stew last weekend and it came out a little bland. It wasn’t bad really, just lacked seasoning. What should I put into it to add a little flavor?

    Every I every made the beef is overcooked, dry and stringy or underdone and the meat tough and the gravy no good. May as well buy a can of Chunky.

    My ma gave me this recipe for beef stew, I love stew but I want to add some more, healthful ingredients to it:
    -1 lb beef
    -3 carrots
    -2 celery stalks
    -5 potatoes
    -Envelope of lipton onion soup mix
    -Can of cream of mushroom soup
    -Can of beef broth
    -Salt & Pepper

    So far, the only things I can think of adding to my ma’s recipe is some sesame seed oil (good unsaturated fats), peas, maybe some type of bean? I dunno, what do you think?
    Great ideas, thanks to everyone.

    Here’s how I cook it as some of you seem to be wondering:
    1. Brown beef in small batches (I’m gonna do this in my cast iron skillet, and smother the beef cubes in the sesame seed oil instead of adding it to the beef)
    2. Mix together mushroom soup, beef broth and onion soup mix.
    3. Pour over beef and add cut up vegetables and pepper (I’m gonna omit the salt as the one dude pointed out – lots of soduim in the soups)
    4. Bake in large covered pot @ 300 degrees for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. (I don’t have a slow cooker but when my ma makes it this way it has always come out great)
