This recipe is an adaptation from a stew my mom makes for me. Since I am a vegetarian of course it is meat free. I love it, my boyfriend loves it, even my sister who eats meat loves it.

How to Make Vegetarian "Beef" Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. take beefless tips out of the freezer and let them thaw for a few min. When you can cut them in half, this makes more stew and I like smaller pieces.
  2. turn the oven up to 375
  3. cut up potatoes, carrots and onions and place in the pan you will be baking your stew in
  4. mix together flour,pepper,garlic powder,and onion powder into a bowl or bag which ever you prefer. Then put the chunks of "beef" into the bowl/bag and cover with flour.
  5. heat up oil in a small frying pan. The pan must be small!!!! Once the oil is hot fry up those yummy little "beef" tips. Once they are cooked place them in the pan that you will be baking your stew in. Dump any excess oil into the pan along with the "beef" (I never said this would be healthy) If using mushrooms sautee them after you fry the "beef" in the same pan
  6. remember that pan you used for frying well keep it out you are going to make the gravy in it according to package directions. Dump the gravy on top of all that goodness in your stew pan
  7. Now it's time to put in your thyme minced garlic and your vegetable stock. Mix that bad boy up
  8. Put in your oven for about 1hr and 15-30min. If you're not sure it's done poke a potato to see if it's soft
  9. Serve it how ever you want I like mine over rice or fresh biscuits but it's also good by itself
