Seriously Simple Beef Stew
(Adapted from Kraft Canada)


  • 2 lbs stewing beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 3/4 BULLSEYE Guinness Barbecue Sauce
  • 5 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 6 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 of a large sweet onion, chopped coarsely
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • a few dashes of ground thyme


  1. Coat the stewing beef in flour.
  2. Add beef to dutch pan with broth and barbecue sauce. Bring to boil and cover. Simmer on medium-low heat for 30 minutes.
  3. Add vegetables to the dutch pan; stir. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat and vegetables are tender. Serve.

Have leftover turkey or chicken on hand. Try substituting the stewing beef with poultry and the beef broth with chicken stock. This would be perfect for using up leftovers from Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinners.
