Twice Baked Beef Stew

I swear, I just can’t cook stew conventionally.  It’s so much fun to mess around with it!

So this is a FANTASTIC idea, especially if you have a pressure cooker, and especially if you have a larger family.


What You’ll Need:

  • stew beef
  • 3 cups of baby carrots
  • 1 large sliced yellow onion
  • 1 chopped stalk of celery
  • a whole bunch of garlic cloves
  • a casserole dish full of whole golden potatoes (I think I had about 16 in mine)
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 1 box of chicken stock
  • kosher salt, black pepper, thyme, garlic powder


So, Here’s What You Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F
  2. Take all the golden potatoes and put them in your largest baking dish.  Drizzle olive oil, kosher salt, garlic powder and black pepper over them.
  3. Place in the oven for 45 minutes
  4. During this time, heat your pressure cooker to simmer
  5. fill the bottom with olive oil, onions, carrots, garlic and beef
  6. sprinkle the herbs and spices on top
  7. now pour the chicken stock over that and cover.
  8. Cook on high for 20 minutes
  9. When it is finished, release the steam and open it up.  Now, take a bowl and put the cornstarch in there and then ladle in a few spoonfuls of broth into the bowl.  Whisk until creamy, and then stir into the pot again.
  10. Then stir in the tomato paste
  11. Okay…now…open the oven (the potatoes should be done by now) and carefully ladle the stew onto the potatoes.


This is such a unique way to have stew, and it will add a little fun to winter dishes 🙂
