Delicious Obsessions: Hearty Grass-fed Beef and Vegetable Stew Recipe | www.deliciousobsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

This hearty grass-fed beef and vegetable stew recipe is wonderful on a cold, snowy winter day. The richness of the beef broth is enhanced with the red wine, garlic, and herbs. The broth is so delicious that I sometimes crave a big bowl of just that. You can add whatever vegetables you would like. For this recipe  I stuck with the classic carrots, onions, celery, and potatoes, but you can tailor it to fit whatever tastes you like. I actually don’t eat the potatoes, so I sometimes make this without the potatoes and will just serve the stew with some garlic cheddar mashed potatoes for the hubby.

I make this recipe in double and sometimes triple batches, so that I can portion it up and freeze it for easy meals. It reheats nicely, and it’s great to have a hearty, home-cooked meal at the end of a busy day, with minimal effort!

  2. You must have been reading my mind! I was looking up recipes just last night for a hearty stew to use up what’s left of 10 pounds of prime rib we (4 of us) had on Christmas Day. And, I happen to have everything, including the homemade beef stock, on hand, except the red wine. Will be even happier to follow a recipe provided by a promoter of grass-fed beef. Thank you for the timely recipe!

  3. I can’t find a beef stock recipe even after searching. Do you have a good one that you recommend?
    I could kick myself in the butt for not learning to make my Mom’s stocks. She often had bones cooking on the stove for days at a time!

    • Hi Amanda – I make my stock at home and I just realized that I don’t have a beef stock recipe on my site! I need to remedy that! :) For now, here is a link to my friend Amanda’s website and her beef stock tutorial: http://www.traditional-foods.com/recipes/beef-broth. There is nothing like homemade stock …. YUM!

  4. Any substitution for red wine?

    • Soccy – The red wine is not mandatory, though it does help give a richness to the stew. I have heard that diluted red wine vinegar, red grape juice, or tomato juice can be substituted for red wine, though I have never personally tried any of that. You could just leave it out and add that much more beef stock. Hope that helps :)

  5. Can this be made in a crock pot? I would like to prepare it in the morning and let it cook throughout the day.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Erica – I have never made it in a crock pot, but I honestly see no reason it would not work. Let me know how it turns out of you do make it! :)

  6. Making this lovely stew right now on this chilly fall day. The guys working on my house (we are doing a remodel) said, “Can you tell me what you are making, it smells delicious!” Although, I couldn’t find lemon thyme ANYWHERE. I used Lemon pepper instead (has thyme in it – then I added a little more thyme). I hope it tastes as good as it smells!!

    • Hi Kate! I’m sure it will! I have a hard time finding lemon thyme as well. I finally broke down and ordered a huge back from Mountain Rose Herbs, so now I’ve got a ton! Love it! :)
