We have many Sunday evenings where we need a quick and easy meal. This is often when I create most my family recipes. One Sunday we were busy, I was sick, and just wanted to have a warm easy soup. I had plans to make Beef Stroganoff but did not feel up to it. So I combined a beef stew with a hobo stew and created something we all devoured. I was able to rest and not feel rushed as I made this wonderful dinner.
One Pot Beef Stew
- 2 lbs stew meat
- 3T butter (Substitute EVOO depending on your needs)
- Salt and Pepper to taste (we use 2 tsp of Pepper and 1 tsp of salt, but we like it peppery)
- 1T flour
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 pint jar corn, drained (or use fresh corn cut from the cob)
- 4 cups water
- 3 cups elbow noodles
- Melt butter in pan (big enough pan for all ingredients), add meat, salt, and pepper, then cook till brown on all sides.
- Sprinkle flour in and stir with butter and meat.
- Add in chopped onion (we like the onion more rough chopped than diced) and let cook a few minutes, stirring to help meld flavors. Add water and bring back up to a boil.
- Turn down and simmer covered for 20-40 minutes (this time will be dependent on how soft you want your onions. We like them crunchy so we usually give 20 minutes.)
- Add noodles then cook till noodles are tender.
- Serve with salad and glass of milk for a full balanced meal.
