Stew beef

I purchased a lot of stew beef. Sometimes I make beef stew. Any other suggestions/recipes for using all this meat?

marinate with whole white mushrooms and quartered onions in red wine or dark beer (or even sweet sherry and black rum), bay leaves, garlic, and black pepper overnight. then skewer the beef, alternating with the mushrooms and onions and grill. sheesh kabobs!!!!

oops, i should have mentioned that you should make the marinade without the onions and mushrooms first, bring to a boil, then let it cool off. then put the meat, onions and mushrooms in the marinade. otherwise, the meat would taste funny from the alcohol.

I cut the chunks up smaller and brown them and put them in my chili recipe.

This is super easy and very tasty

1 lb Stew Meat
1 can Mushroom pieces (I used fresh and it was fabulous)
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 pkg Onion Soup Mix

Combine all ingredients in Slow cooker and mix together. Cook on low 8-10 hours. Serve over egg noodles or rice.

You could really slowly cook the meat in a nice, richly flavoured tomato sauce until the meat disintergrates for a variation on a bolognaise sauce that doesn't use beef mince.

You could make any number of casseroles, including a very tasty Beef Carbonnade with or without a pastry top.

Give it a try with what I call "Lancastshire Hot Pot" (apologies to Kyles, and other such "Brits"!)

6 medium "new" red potato's, peeled and sliced 3/8" thick
2-2.5 lbs stewing meat, blade roast or steak, cut to cubes (also works with rough cuts of pork, or best, with beef shank)(pick your poison, this isn't meant to be expensive!)
3 medium yellow onions, diced
3 cups boiling water
1 pkg onion soup mix
5-6 medium carrots, peeled and cut to "rounds"
1/3 cup margerine (maybe a touch more with stewing beef?)
3/4 oz Worcestshire
1/2 cup AP flour

Use flour to coat your selection of meat cubes, shaking together in a plastic bag, or Tupperware container...

In a 4 liter Enamelled Iron Dutch Oven (Crock Pot Cooking would also work!) layer in the potato, onion and carrot slices alternately, adding beefcubes on top of each single grouping layer-you will get about 3 levels with this quantity-

Season each layer with S+P

Separately, bring the water to aboil, add soup mix and Worcestshire, mix well, and pour into your pot...

Top with margerine.

Cover, bake in oven at 325 degrees for 180-210 minutes...

I like to cook it with onion, canned tomatoes, mushrooms, and soy sauce, then serve it over rice. I add other things, depending on my mood and what is in the cupboards/refrigerator.

honeybee, I have a recipe for Flemish Beer Stew somewhere upstairs if you are interested. As I remember, it is pretty much like a regular beef stew except the only vegetables in it are potatoes, onions, and mushrooms. Of course, the liquid is stale beer.

Personally, I omit carrots and add rutabaga or parsnip or both. Lots of onions and garlic. Sometimes make dumplings for it or homemade biscuits on top.
