Teriyaki Beef Stew

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours


6 servings

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention" I created this recipe because I had a package of stew meat I needed to use. I spotted the ginger beer in the fridge and rest was history. This stew has a delicious sweet-tangy flavor. It's nice to have a different way to serve an inexpensive meal. —Leslie Simms, Sherman Oaks, California

    Enjoyed this recipe. Substituted the peas for carrot, and added them earlier in the cook time. I'm the only person in the house that likes peas, so they had to go.

    I made this last night. It was good. The sauce really needs to be doubled. I will be making this again. The kids even liked it.

    So nice to find something else to use stew meat in. Quick, easy and tasty. Only thing I would change is doubling on the sauce.

    This recipe just didn't work for me. The meat was dry, it needed flavor and the sauce never thickened.

    This was a wonderfully tasty stew. I didn't have a ginger beer but, I did have a pumpkin ale that I used instead. I served it over rice and my son and husband loved it. The meat was so tender and the asian seasonings were delicious.
