One Pot Stovetop Simple and Easy Beef Stew

Since we are slowly leaving the heat and humidity of the summer behind –– thank the lords –– lately, i find myself craving stews and soups. Anything warm that makes me seriously wish that winter comes sooner.

So a few days ago, in an attempt to clean out my fridge –– and also because i’m a lazy hungry sloth –– i managed to pull out whatever was left in my fridge and throw it all into a pan. Lo and behold, this bangin’ beef stew was born. And you already know how the slogan goes : It’s spoon lickin’ good.

 

Kidding, kidding. Okay, without further dillydallying, let’s get right into the recipe.

Additional Notes : 

 

  • Feel free to add any types of vegetables leftovers that you have or even mushrooms.
  • You can also add a can of diced tomatoes. I opt it out since i don’t really enjoy tomato flavor. 
  • For the onions, i cut it in half and cut it a few times across the sides so that the onion juices can seep easier into the soup. I discard it alongside with the bay leaf after i’m done cooking. Feel free to also dice the onions up if you’d like. 
  • Another secret when it comes to stews or soups, here’s the rule of thumb : everything tastes better after you let it sit overnight. In this case, it’s also the same. You can cook it and then let it sit in the fridge while you sleep. By the next morning, your beef stew will be overflowing with flavor. 
  • If you don’t have olive oil, you can switch to canola oil
