Beef Stew

Servings: 2-4
Prep time: 5-10 minutes (not including thaw time)
Cooking time: 30-60 minutes

  • Large pot
  • Large bowl

  • 3 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1 lb slices of beef
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 1 potato, sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Pepper flakes

1.) Marinate beef with sprinkles of salt, pepper, and paprika to flavor.  Add 1 tablespoon of garlic and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, then let sit.

2.) Set pan to medium heatpour 2 tbsp of virgin olive oil (or your choice of cooking oil), and cook garlic and onions until lightly browned.

3.) Add meat and allow to cook for about 1-2 minutes each side or until browned depending on meat thickness.  It will be slow-cooked for a while, so don't overcook or else it will be chewy like rubber.

4.) Add carrots and allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes, then pour 
1L (or 1 quart) of water and lower heat to a simmer for 5-10 minutes (or longer if carrots are cut thick).

5.) Add potatoes and let simmer for 10-30 minutes to tenderize meat and potatoes to preference.  Season as needed.
