Every home-cook needs an easy stew


  • Pick your favorite stewing meat, Beef/ Bone in chicken thighs /Turkey thighs/Lamb shoulder
  • Flour or starch (optional, this thickens the broth)
  • Diced Potato
  • Sliced Mushroom
  • Diced Celery
  • 3+ tsp Goulash paprikash
  • 1-3 tbs oil depending on your choice of meat
  • 2-3 cups water


  1. Cube your stew meat if desired, set your stew pot on high heat with oil
  2. dredge meat with flour and add to pot to brown the surfaces. Stir every few minutes.
  3. Once the surfaces are mostly browned add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer until the meat is tender. 30 min for chicken, 45 for turkey, 2+ hours for beef or lamb.


Note- this also makes an amazing fish stew. Dont brown anything instead simmer the vegetables in a goulash paprikash broth dropping in cubed fish and simmering for 5-8 minutes. Don’t over cook the fish.
