Recipe: Logan’s Favorite Stew

I’ve made this beef stew a few times in the last two years, made some adjustments, and recently stumbled on a combination of ingredients that made Logan ask for three full bowls of it and then request that we also have it the next night. And every night after that.

It’s easy, it’s healthy, it’s cheap. And tasty.

…about the ingredients: We use Pomi tomatoes (comes in a box) because they are BPA-free. The taste is also superior to canned tomatoes. They are available at Whole Foods and on Amazon and might be available in some other grocery stores, though I’ve never seen them anywhere but Whole Foods.

…We use organic vegetables.


1lb round beef steak, cut in to 1″ cubes

1 box Pomi diced tomatoes (24 oz…)

2 cups water*

3 cubes Beef Bouillon*Use Kitchen Basics Beef Broth to make dairy-free (or your own, homemade stock)

*OR 3 cups beef broth

2 potatoes, diced

3/4 cup dried minced onion

4 carrots, chopped

1 15oz can green beans, with liquid

1 15oz can whole kernel sweet corn, with liquid

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp Kosher salt

1/4-1/2 tsp pepper


Combine all ingredients in large crock pot, stir,  cover and cook on high 6 hours.

That’s it. Really.
