Sometimes beef stew is great, but sometimes you get in the mood for stew…but you’re not in the mood for more potatoes. You can get potatoe-d out pretty quickly, if you’re not careful.
They can just be used in so many dishes, it’s easy to go overboard and actually use them in all your dishes.
So here is a recipe for a potatoless beef stew! It’s pressure cooker-oriented, but you can use a crock pot if that’s what you have.
- 1 package of stew beef
- 1 package of mixed dried beans
- 1/2 package of dried pinto beans
- 1 can organic stewed tomatoes
- 1 can tomato paste
- 1 can of beef broth
- 1 chopped yellow onion
- 2 Tbsp kosher salt, ground pepper, garlic powder, paprika
- (totally optional…1 minced jalapeño if you want some spice)
- 8 cups of water
You need to cook the beans first. Place them all in the pressure cooker with the 8 cups of water and cook on high for 45 minutes.
When that is done, add the beef, tomato paste, beef broth, spices
Cook on high for 15 minutes.
Add the onion and tomatoes and cook for 4 minutes.
First you need to soak the beans in a ton of water overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning. Add more water until it is 1/2 inch above the beans.
Add the beef, tomatoes, onions, beef broth and spices.
Cook on high for 7hours.
Garnish with sour cream and Smithwicks!
