The kitchen is your work room; it can be a place of stress or a place of release. However, whatever your kitchen is to you, it is a great place to make a stew for the whole family. Perhaps this sounds a little daunting, after all, stews are a serious cooking project, however, the result can calm any mood and make a would-be-boring dinner, into an extravaganza worth remembering.

I have three favorite stew recipes to recommend to you; the Chuckwagon Stew Recipe, Montana Cowboy Stew Recipe, and Amish Beef Stew Recipe.

Chuckwagon Stew

Chuckwagon stew is an old-time favorite for stew makers, because it is a recipe stew that almost everyone is familiar with and one which everyone likes. You need a pound and a half of beef, half a pound of sliced sausage, a white onion, four potatoes, and a can of baked beans. This dish takes about eight to ten hours to stew in a slow cooker, gradually spooning the bean s in every hour or so. This will serve six people, each serving having about 600 calories.

Montana Cowboy Stew

For this stew you need more potatoes, about 8, an onion, green beans, 3 cans of cream of chicken soup (any brand). Coat the beef with flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to help add flavor to the beef. Put the beef in a plastic bag with all those ingredients, shake until fully covered. Fry the meat while slowly roasting the potatoes and onions. Combine these two together when fully cooked, and add the soup over everything. This stew cooks much fast in four hours, and serves ten people.

Amish Beef Stew

Amish Beef stew is much more vegetable based, if you have would like a little healthier stew. There is no sausage in this stew, just beef, combined with flour, onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, and a cup of tomato juice. Because this has less meat, the tomatoes help create a more marinated, thicker consistency to the stew.

Stew is on of those American classics that can serve a large group of people, or can keep for a week of leftovers for the family.
