Simmered Lunch Eases Afternoon

Southwestern Beef Stew Meal

Start the week out right with Regina S.’s Southwestern Beef Stew. With a few minutes of prep in the morning, the Topeka, Kansas cook welcomes her gang home with this jazzed-up beef-and-veggie combo.

Warm slices of Maple Syrup Corn Bread complement the spicy stew perfectly. Roger H. of Plymouth, New Hampshire created the golden bread with a hint of sweet maple syrup.


  • Apple slices with cinnamon
  • Hot chocolate


  • To perk up the stew’s flavor, use a spicier picante sauce.
  • Regina often adds a 6-ounce can of small pitted ripe olives to the entree for extra taste.
  • Combine the dry ingredients for the corn bread ahead to save time Monday.
