My family loves beef stew and I make it often. Usually making beef stew is a long process of browning the meat, sautéing vegetables and then cooking to savoury perfection.

A terrific way to use your leftover roast beef and vegetables. Check out my Slow Cooker Roast Beef recipe that makes perfect leftovers for this recipe.
I should call this recipe “Leftover Beef Stew” because that is exactly what the ingredient list consists of. I had made a large roast beef dinner and had an abundance of leftovers, so I decided to use all my leftovers to create a fast and simple beef stew. Approximately 30 minutes to make a beef stew that was amazing! I had leftover carrots and potatoes, but if you need to use fresh just extend the cooking time. Throw in whatever vegetables you like such as corn, green or yellow beans, peas, carrots, potatoes, or mushrooms. I was amazed at how scrumptious this recipe tasted!
