A taste of home: Beef Stew

Carrots, potatoes and you can’t forget the beef. These three ingredients are something everyone can recognize as being the primary components of a beef stew.

A beef stew is one meal that gives you a taste of home. And with this recipe, students too can create this warming, comforting taste in their college kitchens.

There’s no denying that this stew takes time to prepare, however, we all know it’s a stomach pleaser. We recommend taking use of your lazy Sunday and making a big pot of this stew to last you the whole week.


  • 1 pound of beef roast
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 1 tub beef stock
  • 2 cups of water
  • 6 carrots sliced
  • 5 cups red potatoes, halved
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce


  1. First, toss the beef in flour.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or pan over medium to high heat, browning the beef.
  3. Remove the beef, then stir in the onions until cooked (about 5 minutes).
  4. Stir in the beef stock, water, Worcestershire sauce and beef. Boil at a high heat, and continually stir until the stock is melted.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot, while occasionally stirring for about 45 minutes.
