Updated October 13, 2016

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 lb lean beef stew meat (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
  • 1 jar (12 oz) home-style beef gravy
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 4 unpeeled small red potatoes, diced (2 cups)
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn (from 12 oz bag)

Steps

  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until cooked but not crisp. Drain all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat from saucepan.
  • 2
    Add beef and onion to bacon; sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is beginning to brown and onion is tender.
  • 3
    Stir in tomatoes, gravy and chili sauce. Heat to boiling. Add potatoes and carrots. Cover; cook over medium-low heat 50 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is tender.
  • 4
    Stir in corn. Cook uncovered 10 to 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender.

  • Like your chili spicy? Use tomatoes labeled “hot” instead of the mild variety.
  • Serve the stew with warm rolled flour tortillas and a tossed green salad.
