Begin by gathering your favorite vegetables and meat for the stew. Feel free to add potatoes, carrots, onions, and any other vegetables that you love. The beauty of beef stew is that you can customize it to your liking.
To add the seasoning mix to your beef stew, start by seasoning the meat. Sprinkle a generous amount of the mix on all sides of the beef chunks. Massage the seasoning into the meat, ensuring every inch is covered.
In a large pot, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Brown the meat in batches until each piece is nicely seared. This step is essential as it creates a delightful crust and locks in the flavors.
Once the meat is browned, remove it from the pot, and set it aside. Add your vegetables to the pot and sauté them until they start to soften. Then, pour in some beef broth and stir in the remaining seasoning mix.
Return the meat to the pot along with any accumulated juices. Bring the stew to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer it for a couple of hours, or until the meat is tender and the flavors have melded together beautifully.
Now, all you have to do is dish up the stew into bowls and savor the incredible flavors created by the homemade seasoning mix. The rich aromas and mouthwatering taste will surely make this beef stew a family favorite.
