vegetables added to brothPerfect for cooking on the stove, in a crock pot or in a dutch oven over a fire. We love to serve it with hot buttery biscuits or corn bread.


Prep Time: 30-45 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour to all day

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: fit to your family


  • 1 lb or more of stew beef or steaks cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • water
  • 2 cups beef gravy
  • 1 or more packets of dry onion soup mix
  • 2 cups each veggies of your choice, celery, onion, potatoes, corn, green beans, carrots
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Brown your meat, in a small amount of water. You can use store bought beef stew meat but I often find it is cheaper to buy 1 or 2 steaks and cut them into small cubes. Stir it often.
  2. Stop here and wash your cutting board in soapy bleach water. You don't want the raw meat juices to stand on the board.
  3. dirty cutting board
  4. Add in diced onion and let them slightly brown.

  6. Add in beef gravy, 1 or more packets of dry onion soup mix. In place of beef gravy, you can use bullion cubes. The beef gravy can be homemade, canned or the powdered envelopes.
  7. Simmer.*
  8. beef stew broth simmering
  9. Next, dice in and add your veggies. It is hard to give an amount, but if you are making it for more than 2 people, I would use at least 2 cups of each veggie of your choice.
  10. At this point, you can cook until veggies are done and serve, or you can let simmer all day in the crock pot or on low on the stove. It also works well in a dutch oven over a fire.

*Sometimes I take part of this and set it aside for a future meal of baked potatoes. This makes a great potato topping.
