Half-Hour Beef Stew Recipe

Half-Hour Beef Stew Recipe

30-minute recipe Serves 4
This hearty beef stew recipe comes together in 30 minutes but tastes like it simmered for hours on the stove. Using pre-cooked pot roast and canned potatoes cuts cooking time considerably without sacrificing flavour.

Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 25 mins
  • 1

    Cut off one corner of the pot roast bag. Squeeze gravy into a medium sized bowl, then set aside. Remove pot roast from packaging and cut into bite-sized chunks.

  • 2

    Heat a large saucepan over medium-high. Add butter, then onion and carrots. Cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • 3

    Combine beef broth and gravy mix with the reserved pot roast gravy. Add gravy mixture to onions and carrots, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • 4

    Add potatoes and mushrooms to the stew. Return to a boil, then simmer over medium-low, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes.

  • 5

    Gently stir in the pot roast chunks and peas, being careful not to break up the meat. Simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes.
