Beef and Vegetable Stew

Jump to Recipe

When I think of a beef stew, there is tender meat, vegetables and a gravy.  I remember having an “aha” moment when I realised that tomatoes are the key to a “beefy” flavoured gravy in a stew.    

Stews can be cooked in a number of ways – on the stove, in the oven, in a slow cooker, pressure cooker – and in the Thermomix.  Depending on the cut of meat you use, one appliance may be better than another.   

I made this recipe for the Thermomix using a more tender cut of meat for a quick and easy meal.  There’s also lots of vegetables and the best part is that the Thermomix does all the work for me!
