Braised Beef stew is one of those dishes that goes down well with virtually anything.  With mouth watering tender beef, a selection of veggies and thick tasty gravy; you can’t really go wrong with a good beef stew.  It’s a feel good dish, perfect for any time, comforting in all the right ways and bursting with flavour.  So today I’m sharing one of my favourite braised beef stew recipes.  It’s easy to follow and you can substitute some of the veggies and potatoes if you want.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 2 hours

Serves: 10 people

 

Ingredients

  • 900g of beef, chopped
  • Salt
  • 2 tsps of garlic seasoning
  • 2 tsps of paprika
  • 2 tsps of black ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 beef stock cubes, crumbled
  • 1L water
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed (optional)
  • 4 medium carrots, chopped
  • 4 sticks celery, chopped (optional)
  • 1 large onion, chopped

Method

In a bowl marinate your beef with; garlic seasoning, paprika and black pepper.

In a large pan or pot add vegetable oil and cook the beef over a medium heat until brown. Dissolve stock cubes in 1 litre of water and pour into the pan. Stir in your rosemary and parsley and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Stir in your potatoes, carrots, celery and onion into the pot, add salt to taste; cover and simmer for 1 more hour.

Once cooked, your beef will be soft and tender, and the gravy will be thick and rich.

You can also add veggies like – mushrooms, green peas, broccoli, cauliflower and parsnips.

  1. Nice one Kanta. I can’t wait to eat at one of your restaurant one day. If I can afford it I may just hire you to do the catering for my wedding or as a private chef for a function!! We need you in Zambia

  2. WOW!! I AM STARVING AND LOOKING AT THIS DELICIOUS ARRANGEMENT. I FEEL LIKE I CAN EAT THE PLATE, TOO, KNOWING HOW TASTY ORGANIC BEEF IN ZAMBIA IS. THAT CAN BE A PERFECT MEAL WITH ANY CARBOHYDRATE- AKABWALI, SWEET AND IRISH POTATOES, REAL ORGANIC PUMPKINS, BOILED OR ROAST KALUNDWE, RICE SORGHUM ETC.
