Mom's Italian Beef Stew

Thursday, July 2, 2020
Italian old fashioned beef stew is pure comfort food.


Even though mom made this almost every week during the winter months, I love it with all fresh vegetables in the summer when they are plentiful.


The fresh string beans, garden tomatoes with any meat you like can go into the stew.


We love to use a nice thick piece of London Broil and cut it into chunks it makes a very flavorful stew not to mention makes this cut of meat super fork tender.


If you are looking for an easy recipe for stew this is it and the bonus is a healthy meal that is addictive in flavors!

Hearty and Comforting



This all in one pan meal is the perfect comfort food.


The only other ingredients you need is to serve this with Italian hard-crusted bread to sop up all the delicious sauce this makes.


One thing is for sure you can add and omit whatever you don't like in a stew and adapt it to your family's taste!


Then the best part about this one-pan easy stew, it's super healthy and full of vitamins!
