My husband is a fan of stews during the winter. I can’t say I blame him, after working outside in the cold all day, warming up to a hearty bowl of flavorful stew with a crusty Italian bread is a filling and comforting way to end even the coldest winter days.

If the recent drop in temperature has got you craving beef stew too, I have a seasoning mix that will really add more flavor to your favorite beef stew recipe and warm you up during wintery evenings.  This simple mix of herbs and spices enhance the flavors, while flour helps thicken your stew, making for a rich and delicious meal.

A batch of Beef Stew Seasoning Mix will season roughly 4 batches of stew made with 2 lbs. of stew meat.  All you need to do is dust your stew meat with Beef Stew Seasoning Mix before you brown it, it smells AMAZING. If you are having one of those mornings and browning the meat just isn’t an option, coat the meat with the Beef Stew Seasoning Mix before you throw it in the crockpot with the other ingredients, it will still be awesome.

  1. Hi Samantha

    Newly single male living in New Zealand new to cooking and enjoying it. Tried your beef stew mix remedy left out the cayenne tested it on my forever hungry builder son. We are into winter now we both love the stew which is now in demand.


  2. Great recipe but I cut the black pepper in half, only using 1 Tbl spoon of pepper. And I also leave out the cayenne pepper also. Great recipe.

    1. Hi Samantha,
      The “Beef Strew Seasoning” is in Playfair, and the “Recipe” is in Allura

  3. I’m sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but would 2-3 tablespoons of this mix replace one envelope of the premade seasoning packet? Trying to substitute better ingredients for a recipe that calls for stew seasoning mix.


  4. I’m always gathering and trialing spice mix recipes – saving this one for later. The blend looks like it could be good on chicken, too!

    1. Yes, there is really nothing specific to beef in this mix, I will have to try it out on chicken! Thanks!

  5. What an awesome idea to make ahead a seasoning mix! Love it. And hearty stew is the best in cold winter days.
