Recipe: Alita's Tomato Beef Stew

Alita tweaked this rich, tomato-based beef stew over the years from her original recipe, which was much less red and contained less vegetables. Were always a little regretful when the pot is empty. Teenagers can wolf it down pretty fast

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • cup oil

How to Make Alita's Tomato Beef Stew

  1. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a resealable bag; add stew meat and shake until meat is coated.

Alita's Tomato Beef Stew Reviews

  • Followed the recipe (except I scaled it down for 4) as written for the exception of mushrooms. Made this for company and had to leave them out because of an allergy to them. This was enjoyed by all.

  • This is a great one-pot recipe The only addition I made was to deglaze the pot with 1/2 cup red wine after browning the beef.

  • Beautiful recipe, just what I was looking for with the tomato base. Fit perfectly in my 6 quart dutch oven using near exact measurements and I took some extra time to brown the beef in batches. I simmered on low for more than 2 hours with heavy lid and I added the carrots and potatoes at the same time rather than separately as suggested, it probably took another hour and then at end added the mushrooms. This was so good

  • This was really really good. The only thing Id change is to add the carrots and potatoes earlier. I like softer veggies in my stew. Otherwise, perfect

  • I would definitely say its a repeat recipe, but add more paprika and less Worcestershire sauce. The sauce was a bit much. Id say add half or 2/3 the sauce, and perhaps another 25% paprika. Add more carrots as well. Other than that, quite delicious. The recipe doesnt say whether to stew uncovered or not, but I tried uncovered and it started to develop a skin on top. I suggest partly covered to allow it to thicken without a skin.

  • The family loved this recipe. The tomato base was a nice change from traditional beef stew. The only change I made was to substitute red wine for water.

  • The only change I made was to the number of servings and it was delicious. The family loved it on a chilly day

  • Made as directed but my tomatoes were "chili ready" with a touch of chili powder taste. This only enriched the flavor and made it more robust. Excellent recipe Thanks

  • I added diced tomatoes along with the sauce and it made it so tasty

  • Everyone loved it I followed the recipe exactly.

  • I didnt use mushrooms but red and yellow peppers instead. It was delicious......a keeper.
