Skillet beef and beer stew
This hearty one-pot meal can be prepared in just one hour. Double the recipe and freeze for too-busy-to-cook days.
Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 40 min
1 serving olive oil cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
12 oz lean beef round, roast, cut into cubes
1 medium onion(s), chopped
1 medium bell pepper(s), chopped
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced (or 1 tsp jarred minced garlic)
2 medium potato(es), peeled and diced
24 medium baby carrots, about 1/2 lb
1 cup fat-free beef broth
8 oz light beer
1/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp paprika
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, pepper and garlic; cook until beef is browned, stirring, about 3 minutes.
Stir in potatoes, carrots, broth and beer; bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 30 minutes.
Stir together evaporated milk, cornstarch and paprika in a small cup; add to beef mixture and stir to combine. Cook until slightly thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
