Artichoke Beef Stew Recipe

"The recipe for this special stew was given to me by a dear friend before she moved to another state," shares Janell Schmidt of Athelstane, Wisconsin. "She served it with dumplings, but my husband prefers noodles."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 7-1/2 hours YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef consomme, undiluted
  • 2 medium onions, halved and sliced
  • 1/2 pound small fresh mushrooms, halved
  • 1 cup red wine or beef broth
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 2 jars (6-1/2 ounces each) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • Hot cooked noodles


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add beef, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown beef in oil in batches.
  • 2. Transfer to a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker with a slotted spoon. Gradually add consomme to the pan, stirring to loosen browned bits. Stir in the onions, mushrooms, wine, garlic and dill. Pour over beef.
  • 3. Cover and cook for low for 7-8 hours or until tender. Stir in the artichokes; cook 30 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve with noodles. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Outstanding. I would serve this to company. Because it is so easy it affords more time with family and guests. Taste is superb. I added additional non-marinated artichokes. Even in our 70s we like to try new things, and this is a definite keeper. Thank you for sharing it."

"My husband loves artichokes. I try to eat them since they are good for you. This is a wonderful meal and I used twice the amount of artichokes half plain and half marinted. I'm in month 3 of all slow cooking dinners so I was glad to find this different stew recipe."

"the only thing I might add is extra artichokes"

Reviewed Nov. 14, 2009

"My family really enjoyed this lovely recipe. I like it because it is simple yet has the distinctive flavors of a dish that would normally take more time and effort, I think due to the wine, consomme and artichokes. I used I slightly higher quality meat, and it was incredibly tender."
