Beef Stew and Biscuits

Cold weather is starting to settle in here in the Northeast so of course I wanted to share another great "warm your insides" meal.  
Here is an easy Beef Stew for you to try.  And if you can add some home-made biscuits .. well that's a pretty complete meal in my book! Once again Tupperware has the tools to make it easily.  

  • 2 medium onions, roughly chopped 
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced using Chop ’N Prep 
  • 2 ribs celery, thickly sliced
  • 1 lb. carrots, peeled and thickly sliced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. Steak & Chop Seasoning Blend, divided
  • 2 lbs. beef tri-tip, cut into ¾" cubes
  • 2 lbs. baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 3 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 32-oz. carton no-salt-added beef stock, divided
  • Biscuits
  • 1½ cups biscuit baking mix
  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • ½ cup beer or milk
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 355° F.
  2. Place onion, garlic and carrots in UltraPro 6-Qt. Roasting Pan.
  3. In large bowl, combine flour and 1 tbsp. seasoning blend. Add beef cubes and toss to coat. Add beef and excess flour to roasting pan, cover and microwave on high power 6 minutes.
  4. Remove from microwave and add potatoes.
  5. Whisk together tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce and 1 cup beef stock in 2-cup Micro Pitcher. Add to roasting pan, along with remaining stock, and stir to combine.
  6. Cover and transfer to oven 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  7. Biscuits
  8. In medium bowl, combine biscuit baking mix, remaining seasoning blend and sugar.
  9. Add beer or milk and mix until just combined.
  10. Stir in cheese. Remove stew from oven and uncover.
  11. Invert cover and brush with oil. Drop biscuit dough, by the tablespoonful, onto the inverted cover of UltraPro pan, making 14 biscuits.
  12. Stack cover over roasting pan containing stew, place together in oven and bake 30 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

If you are interested in the Tupperware pieces used in this recipe (and can be used in so many more) you can check them out on my Tupperware Site.  One of the awesome pieces, the UltraPro, can be used in both the microwave or the oven or in both to tandem cook.  Really makes for wonderful meals in a flash!
