Hearty Beef Stew Recipe: The Most Delicious Beef Stew Takes Less Than an Hour

There's nothing like the comfort of a big bowl of beef stew. In fact, beef stew may just top the list of the world's greatest comfort foods. But, who has the time to cook beef stew all day long? Not us! 

That's why we love this easy beef stew recipe. This hearty beef stew is ready in less than an hour. Seriously! 

Just brown the beef, add the vegetables to the pot, add the beef back to the pot and simmer all the ingredients. Voila, piping hot beef stew before you know it. Enjoy every delicious bite for dinner with some fresh baked bread!
