How can a hearty beef stew be made in only 30 minutes? We are using a couple of easy shortcuts that will make the stew tasty and fast. Using dried spices like garlic and onion powder speed up the process by eliminating the chopping. The other real time saver is using sirloin instead of stew meat because sirloin takes just a few minutes to get tender and delicious.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Why should you use avocado oil in this recipe? Although variations of beef stew are cooked up all over the world, a recipe like this one is typically an “American” recipe. Olive oil is full of Mediterranean flavor and avocado oil is very neutral tasting. In addition, avocado oil is super for high heat cooking like searing the sirloin before adding it to the stew.

Charles Smith Boom Boom Syrah
Washington State
About $17

Beef stew’s bold flavors should be paired with a wine that won’t be easily overpowered. The intensity of both the stew and wine need to be matched. That’s why you’ll want a full-bodied wine. Syrah, or Shiraz, pairs well with beef stew because of its bold flavors and full body, which match the heartiness of the dish. This wine from Washington State is a great example of American Syrah thats’s perfect for a weekday dinner. The black pepper, spice, and slightly smoky notes of Syrah play well with the stew’s savory goodness.
