Its been raining cat and Dog here in California for almost a week now and the weather is quite wet and a bit cold plus I’ve got a bit of cold. This is the season where everyone in the house craves for something hot, earthy and filling to warm up on the inside.

Potatoes appeals to most of us it’s versatile, nutritious, inexpensive and unfailingly delicious when cooked right! The ingredients in this recipe may be simple but together, they make a truly awesome dish. Pair this with your favorite Flatbreadfreshly baked dinner rolls or a loaf of french bread for a hearty meal that the whole family will love.

Stewed Beef Potatoes

Just as mashed potatoes have an affinity for butter, I’ve come to realize that baked potatoes go so well with Chicken and the marriage of stewed potatoes with beef is a perfect one. Well, that’s my own observation. 🙂

I made this potato recipe very similar to this recipe here where I used ground beef instead of cubed beef and it’s so good. I am intentional about mentioning my ground beef variation so that nothing will stop you from making this exotic dish if all you have is ground beef.

The first thing to do is to prepare all your ingredients, Cube the beef, peel and cube the potatoes, clean and cut the carrots. This makes the cooking process a breeze. Talking about cubing the Meat, it is advisable to cut the beef into bite-size. I mean really tiny bite-size. This is the secret to getting super tender meat in one hour. If you bought the already cut cube beef from the store, I will advise you still cut them into smaller chunks, in that way the meat will cook faster.

Browning the beef is a key to making an excellent beef stew. Start by generously seasoning your beef. Then, heat up the Oil in the pan on a medium to high heat. Add the beef inside the heated pan, you should hear it sizzle. Leave it to brown on both sides for about 10 minutes.

Step by step picture directions on how to make stewed beef potatoes

Whenever I’m working with recipes that uses beef and stock or broth, I always like to use chicken or vegetable stock in order not to overwhelm the recipe with too much beef taste, that is why I chose to use vegetable stock in this recipe. (Chicken stock will work just as well). If you don’t have any stock at hand, simply use one or two bouillon cubes.

  • Green beans or sweet peas are also a great addition to this meal
  • Choose the large carrots so that they can cook at the same time as the potatoes without going mushy.
  • The colder the stew gets, the thicker it becomes. Therefore, you may need to add some water when warming it to thin it out.
  • To make the cornstarch slurry, simply combine two tablespoons of cornstarch with two tablespoons of water. Mix well until cornstarch is well dissolved.

You have a new fan/follower in me! I made this tonight with very few deviations (I added seasoning salt, chicken bouillon and total seasoning) and it turned out perfectly! Your written directions and YouTube video was easy to follow. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

Dear Chef Lola, thanks for this recipe. I want to know if that's irish or sweet potatoes you used? And can I skip the slurring with cornstarch please? Thanks

I used russet potatoes but yes, you can use Irish. You can skip the slurry but you will need to reduce the water so that the potatoes don't turn out too watery.
