Cool Stewing beef

I have some stew beef that I need to use. I think my family is getting tired of the old beef stew. Got any ideas of something new and kid friendly that I could make out of stew beef?

Thanks for the help!

Braised beef with carrots. This is something my youngest absolutely adores (he is 10).

1 - 1 1/2 lbs stewing beef
seasoned flour
vegetable oil
2 sliced onions & 8 sliced carrots
600ml beef or other stock
mixed herbs or bouqet garni

Toss the meat in seasoned flour and fry in caserole dish using the oil until brown.
Remove meat and quick fry the onions and carrots and mixed herbs (if using) in the remaining oil. Return the meat to pan and stir in the stock Bring to the boil and add the bouqet garni (if using). Cover casserole and put in oven (300 - 350F) and leave to cook for about 2 and half hours.

You can also add dumplings to cook in the liqor - add them for the last 20 minutes.

Stroganoff or just plain old beef cubes in mushroom gravy.

Or, just a really simple vegetable soup - if they eat stuff like that.

Stroganoff! YUM!

How about a long slow cook, shredding the meat and adding bbq or sloppy joe sauce?

I sometimes just brown the beef add beef broth, tomatoes (canned), onion and hoisin sauce. I cook it as long as I would a beef stew. I have served it with horseradish mashed potatoes. Any side veg.
