Skillet Ground Beef Stew

by Laura

Beef stew is one of those great classic comfort foods.  I love my mom’s recipe.  It really is the best in my book.  I will be sharing that recipe in my cookbook scheduled to come out in Spring 2010.  So you’ll have to wait for the book to get that one.  However, I saw a recipe for skillet ground beef stew in my Betty Crocker Aug/Sept 2010 issue titled Best Burgers and More and gave it a try.

My mom’s stew recipe does take 3 hours to make.  This skillet version only takes 30 minutes.  It is very easy make and very tasty.  I still think mom’s version is the best, but this is really yummy for a quick version made on a stove top.  For me, a good stew must have potatoes, carrots, and beef.  This recipe has all of those plus mushrooms, with I LOVE.  The gravy portion of this stew gets a good amount of flavor from some Dijon mustard too.  This stew had a very fresh flavor.  We had a little leftover. So, I ate it for my lunch the next day.  I think this skillet ground beef stew tasted even better when you have it the next day.

Skillet Ground Beef Stew


  • Author: Laura

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups  beef-flavored broth
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 lb unpeeled Yukon Gold or red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (3 medium) I used Yukon Gold
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in salt, pepper and flour. Add mushrooms; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. In small bowl, mix broth, whipping cream and mustard with wire whisk. Add to beef mixture. Stir in potatoes and carrots.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook 15 minutes until vegetables are tender and sauce is slightly thickened. If the sauce is too thin at the end of the cooking process, increase the heat to medium-high and cook uncovered another few minutes until the liquid reduces and is slightly thickened.  Sprinkle with parsley. Serves 4-5.

This is a super easy meal and so very good! I added some sliced onion pieces with the mushrooms but that was because I was a little short on the fresh mushrooms. We will definitely have this again.

I added garlic, celery, zucchini and swapped cream for Greek yogurt. It was a little salt because of the beef broth (from bouillon cube) so next time I wouldn’t add any salt to the meat first. I didn’t add the mushrooms because I hate mushrooms. It was a quick, fast recipe… easy and tasted pretty good.
