Camping Recipe

Beef & Lentil Stew


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 lb stew meat, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2-4 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 4 carrots, skinned and diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, coarsely chopped
  • 1 14.5 can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup dry lentils
  • 32 oz container beef broth
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 4 baby red potatoes, diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Lightly dredge the stew meat pieces in the flour. Set the meat aside, and discard any leftover flour.
  • Heat oil in a 6 quart soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Sear the beef on all sides until it’s browned. Remove the meat from the pot and set aside.
  • Add the carrots, celery, and onion to the pot, reduce heat, and cook until the veggies are softened and onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. You can add a bit more oil if necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, lentils, beef broth, garlic, rosemary, and browned beef pieces to the vegetables, stirring well to combine.
  • Simmer on low heat for 30-40 minutes, covered halfway lid, and stirring occasionally.
  • About 20 minutes before serving, add diced potatoes. Continue to simmer until the potatoes are tender.

Lentils are an under-appreciated ingredient that help bulk up soups and stews while adding amazing flavor and great nutrition! One of my favorite things about this meal is that it’s a one pot wonder – no need to dirty a lot of extra dishes. Start to finish, you’re using one pot and that’s it!
