Quick beef stew

This is a simple stovetop beef stew that is very easy to throw together…

olive oil
Diced beef
Diced onion
Diced vegies – I use potato, sweet potato and carrots
salt & pepper
Beef stock cube
Gravy powder

In a large saucepan, heat some oil, then add the onion.  Cook onion for a couple of minutes, then add the beef.  Cook, stirring, for another couple of minutes.  Add in the vegies.   Put 1 beef stock cube and a heaped teaspoon of gravy powder in a small jug.  Add some hot water and stir to combine.  Pourinto the saucepan and add enough water to cover the beef and veg.  Season with salt and pepper.  Reduce heat and simmer for half an hour or until cooked. 
I usually add some peas and corn for the last couple of minutes, but you can add whatever vegies you like…

  1. I did this in the slow cooker yesterday – same ingredients but completely different result! Tasted wonderful, but very different to the stovetop stew….
