Tender beef, creamy potatoes, savory carrots in a rich broth makes this the most comforting dish on the planet!
This is one of my family’s favorite meals ever. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to share it with you! It is a simple, down-home, comfort food dish that fills the bellies. It is simple meat and potatoes kind of meal which is always a crowd pleaser. It is also naturally gluten and dairy-free and made with all-natural ingredients.
We love rainy days in Arizona. Since it is sunny almost year-round, most people in Arizona enjoy a cloudy, crisp cool day. If there is any slight chill in the air, I want to whip up some homemade beef stew for the family. It is a stick-to-your-bones kind of meal made with ingredients you can pronounce.
This is comfort food that actually has health benefits! I found all of these ingredients at my local Fry’s store. The meat department makes it easy for you and you can buy perfectly cut bite-sized stew meat, which saves a lot of time! It is lean beef so it is a great source of lean protein.
I buy the Private Selection petite Yukon gold potatoes because they are perfectly creamy and less starchy than a russet potato. I use them all of the time! Carrots add a healthy carbohydrate with a rich amount of Vitamin A and onions are always amazing immune system boosters. If you want to up the gut health benefits, you can reach for beef bone broth instead of just beef broth.
When making beef stew, I throw everything in a slow cooker. It is so easy and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, set the timer to cook low and slow, and you end up with a gourmet comfort food meal.

A hearty beef stew recipe made with all-natural ingredients.
- 2 lbs. Beef Stew Meat (lean beef cut into cubes by butcher)
- 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. Yukon Gold Potatoes (cut into bite size pieces)
- 5-6 large Carrots (peeled and sliced)
- 1 large Onion chopped
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- 1 teaspoon Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder (or 4 garlic cloves finely diced)
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 28 ounces Beef Broth
- 1/4 cup Tomato Paste
- 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch or Flour
Place beef stew meat, potatoes, sliced carrots, and chopped onion into a slow cooker. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour in beef broth, tomato paste, and cornstarch and stir.
Heat on low for 8 hours or on high for 6 hours. This beef stew does best cooking low and slow so I suggest cooking it on low for 8 hours.
Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper as needed.
