Now that Halloween has passed, we’re now in the homestretch of fall towards what they’re saying is going to be a very cold, long winter. Can I just say I am NOT looking forward to that? What I AM looking forward to, though, is all of the cold-weather comfort food recipes I’ll finally be able to justify making, like this easy beef stew recipe.

And by easy, I mean EASY! This is a beef stew with frozen vegetables, though I use leftover vegetables too, so the prep time is minimal. This does call for a pre-cooked beef roast, so I actually like to make this homemade beef stew recipe using leftover beef roast and leftover vegetables. It’s a great way to turn last night’s leftovers into a new and delicious dinner.

Easy stew recipes are a winter staple for many, I think. Is there really anything that says winter comfort food dinner than a big bowl of a hearty, steaming stew? I think not. Stews, chowders, and soups are definitely my go-to dinners in the winter. I love the fix it and forget it nature of many easy stew recipes. The longer they cook, the more flavor they have.

I’ve tried a few homemade beef stew recipes but in the end, I love this one the most. Making a beef stew with frozen vegetables just makes life easier. I didn’t specify which frozen veggies to use in the recipe because I just like to open my freezer and use whatever is there but typical homemade beef stew recipes call for peas, carrots, and corn. Feel free to add or leave out other veggies based on what you have available in your fridge.

The broth base for this beef stew is so easy too, just cornstarch, water, and beef broth.

I usually make this easy beef stew a day or two after having a beef roast for dinner. It’s a great way to use up leftovers without eating the same meal over and over. Even better, this stew reheats well so it’s great for lunch the next day too.

If you’re craving some warm comfort food in the cooler weather, definitely give this easy beef stew a try.

How To Make This Easy Beef Stew Recipe:

For this easy Beef Stew, place cooked beef roast, vegetables (frozen and leftover) and beef broth into a pot. Bring to boil.

Mix cornstarch and water together.

Add to stew to thicken. For the thicker stew, add more cornstarch. For a thinner beef stew, more water.
