Home Made Beef Stew Recipe

This amazing beef stew recipe with carrots and onions can be easily prepared. Ever since I can remember beef stew was my favourite types of food.

Homemade Beef Stew with carrots and onions I Smart Party Planning

When I was a little girl we had nice family gatherings at my grandma’s house. I loved these moments and I will always remember them.

My grandma is the best cook ever. She prepares different types of food, and everyday there is something new.

When I went to visit her I was always happy when she made her home made beef stew. I admit her beef stew is better than mine. But I always remember how she made it and I’m trying to make it as often as possible at my home.

It’s easy but requires a little time. Beef tends to be hard. It requires longer cooking. The best part is that beef stew can be served with anything… potatoes, pasta, rice and even quinoa. As you can see I had it with quinoa. My dinner was very good and the whole family loved it.

First I cooked my beef on the pan with oil, then I added sliced carrot, sliced onion, some seasoning and everything simmered on low heat for awhile.

Also, if you prefer other vegetables you can easily add it as well. However you prefer.

The beef stew has to be good. I like it with onions and I think onions are the must in this recipes. Carrot will add a little additional taste.

    I love an old fashion beef stew the way my Nanny used to make it… but in my slow cooker! Thanks for linking up to Tasty Tuesday last week. I hope you’ll link up again tomorrow! I’ve pinned your great recipe to the Creative K Pinterest board.
