Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 1 Hour, 15 Minutes


1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (32-oz.) bag frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, green beans, and lima beans)
1 (15-oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5-oz.) can diced Italian-style tomatoes
1 medium-size baking potato, peeled and diced
1 celery rib, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup ketchup
1 extra-large chicken bouillon cube
1/2 teaspoon pepper


1. Cook meat in hot oil over medium-high heat in a large Dutch oven 6 to 8 minutes or until browned.

2. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables, next 9 ingredients, and 1 1/2 qt. water, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of Dutch oven. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 55 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Knorr Chicken Bouillon cube.


An extra-large bouillon cube adds more flavor. If you don't have this size, you can use two regular cubes.
