Beef Stew Man-Style

The title of this recipe tickles me. I have no idea what man-style beef stew means at all. This is from a recipe card…looks like the recipe was cut out from a Hunt’s tomato sauce ad. Despite the name, it is a fairly reliable, decent beef stew for comfort food purposes whether you are a man or a woman.

Beef Stew, Man-Style

Something wonderful happens when you add Hunt’s Tomato Sauce to Stew! It brightens up the color, gives meat and vegetables a spicy goodness and makes a heartier, richer gravy. Try it in your own casseroles.

2 lbs lean stewing beef, cut in pieces
2 tsp salt
1/4 c flour
2 T pure vegetable oil, such as Wesson Oil
1 cup hot water
2 8-0z cans Hunt’s tomato sauce
1/4 t pepper
1/2 bay leaf
1/8 t thyme
6 carrots, scraped
6 onions, peeled
6 potatoes, peeled
1 cup peas, canned or frozen

Season meat with salt; roll in flour. Brown slowly in oil in heavy kettle or saucepan. Add hot water, Hunt’s tomato sauce, and seasonings. Cover tightly; simmer gently about 1 1/2 hours. Cut carrots, onions and potatoes into quarters. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add to stew. Cover and cook about 45 minutes longer. Add peas 10-15 minutes before serving. 6 servings.


  1. That doesn’t sound too bad.

    Now, if you want to see a real Hunt’s atrocity, take a gander at this “recipe”.

  2. What an incredibly bright dinner!
