  1. In a large resealable plastic zipper bag, place flour, seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir the flour and seasonings together, and add the beef stew meat. Seal the bag and shake several times to coat the beef cubes with seasoned flour. Brush off excess flour.
  2. Heat half of the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry half of the beef cubes, turning them over until all sides are nicely browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the browned beef to a plate, and repeat with the rest of the canola oil and beef cubes. Transfer to plate, and cook and stir the onion in the hot skillet until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk together beef broth, mushroom soup, and skim milk until smooth. Return the beef cubes to the skillet together with any juices on the plate, add the mushrooms, and pour the broth mixture over the beef and mushrooms. Turn heat to low, and simmer until the meat is very tender, about 3 hours. For a thicker gravy, mix cornstarch and water to make a smooth paste, and stir into the gravy. Simmer about 2 minutes to thicken.


  • Cook's Notes
  • I use the Tones brand Beef Base to make my own broth. For the 3 cups of broth I used about 1 tablespoon of the beef base with 3 cups of hot water. Be sure to whisk the wet ingredients together before putting into the skillet.

Glad to see that your recipe finally got published, Cindy! I grew up with Mom making something like this when I was little, so this is total comfort food. Sometimes, I'll change the ingredients ...

While this is certainly not a 'fancy' recipe I'm giving it a five because of the ingredient/result ratio. This is an excellent 'poor man's stroganoff'. You get the same flavor as using a more ...

Cindy, what an awesome recipe! Made this over the week-end and it was a great hit. I added some sour cream at the end and served it over egg noodles. My family loved it. Thank you so much fo...

Tons of flavor + easy = 100% awesome! I did mine in the slow cooker. Don't skip the pan frying! It really keeps the juice locked into your stew meat and helps hold the pieces together over the 7...

Wow, I am finally published!!! Check out this great recipe.. makes me so happy! The picture that is added right now by me is from tat2whttrsh aka Lambchop's Mom (thank you so much tat!)

This was great. My picky husband ate it.

The meat was very tender, but the sauce was fairly bland. I used more meat than the recipe called for and there was still way too much sauce. The only thing that made this special was that I ser...

Ahhh-MaZinG! Thanx for sharing such a great comfort food recipe. I simplified by using the crockpot after browning the meat.

This was great. I didn't have any mushrooms so I left them out. Next time I think I'm going to try using a homemade soup mix instead of the cream of mushroom but that's just a personal preferenc...
