Wanting to do something different with the standard beef stew, I added a spicy twist to this family’s comfort food. It’s quick and easy and sure to please the hungry!

Recipe Ingredients

  • all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 ½ pounds beef stew meat, cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more if needed
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 (1.5 ounce) package dry beef stew seasoning mix
  • 2 large potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)
  • 1 cup frozen corn

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix flour, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a shallow dish.
  2. 2 Gently press beef cubes into the flour mixture to coat evenly.
  3. 3 Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir beef in batches in hot oil until browned completely, about 5 minutes per batch. Remove browned beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl until all beef is browned.
  4. 4 Stir water and beef stew seasoning mix together in a slow cooker until the seasoning is dissolved into the liquid. Add browned beef, potatoes, onion, diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, and hot pepper sauce.
  5. 5 Cook on High, 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours. Add frozen corn and continue cooking until the corn is hot, about 30 minutes more.

  1. Chop potatoes in smaller size. So they are done at same time as chicken
  2. Yummy and easy. I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies and cut up the potatoes to put in. Filling on a cold winter night.
  3. It's a great, easy beef stew! I added Kale and Sriracha to take this amazing recipe to the next level.
  4. This stew has a lot of flavor! Really enjoyed it on the slightly hot side. Didn't change anything and will make this again with more corn next time.
