Bloody Mary Beef Stew

Bloody Mary Beef Stew

When I read a fellow foodie blogger had made a Bloody Mary Pot Roast, I thought to myself “I SO have to make this!” But being lazy like I am, I instead used some pre-cut beef stew meat we had in the freezer, along with a pre-made Bloody Mary mix. You see, I drink like maybe one or two Bloody Marys a year. (Specifically one on New Year’s Day, and sometimes another one on Mother’s Day.) But what to do with all that leftover Bloody Mary mix? So I end up freezing it. This recipe idea gave me the perfect excuse to defrost it and make this wonderfully flavorful and spicy beef stew!

Dr. Swami and Bone Daddy's Bloody Mary Mix

Dr. Swami and Bone Daddy’s Bloody Mary Mix ~ Da’ Good Stuff!

The original recipe is by my friend Mollie, aka the Frugal Hausfrau and she concocts her own homemade Bloody Mary sauce to pour over a full chuck roast. You can read that version here. By adding some additional beef broth and various chopped veggies, you end up with a one-pot full-meal deal! What is not to like about that? I recommend serving with a nice crusty piece of French bread. So tasty! Hubby agreed.

Bloody Mary Beef Stew

1 1/4 pounds beef stew meat
2 tablespoons flour
Ground pepper and salt or Mrs. Dash, to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup Bloody Mary mix (I used Dr. Swami and Bone Daddy’s)
1 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic (1 clove)
1 cup baby carrots
3 medium potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
2 cups homemade or good-quality beef broth
1 shot glass of Vodka
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup peas, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep the veggies. Unwrap the beef stew meat and leave it on the plastic wrap on the butcher paper. Season with ground black pepper and salt or Mrs. Dash, to taste. Sprinkle the flour over the meat, mixing it around until all pieces are coated.

Heat the vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef stew meat and cook (in batches) until browned on all sides. You don’t want to cram all the meat into the pot at once or it will steam instead of crisp up.

Remove meat and set aside on the butcher paper after removing the plastic wrap from it.Β  (See how I did that? No dirty plate!)

Add the chopped onions to the pot and cook until starting to soften. Add in the minced garlic for a minute or so. Deglaze the pot with the beef broth, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients except the peas and bring stew up to a simmer. Season with more ground black pepper, if you wish.

Cover, turn off heat, and carefully place into preheated oven. Cook covered for 2 hours. Remove from oven and stir in the thawed peas. Serve in bowls with crusty French bread and butter.

    Kathryn, you devil. 😈 πŸ˜€ I haven’t had a bloody Mary in decades and now I’m Jonesing for one. It’s been such a stressful couple of days (engine light on my car… I’ll spare you the details). Sigh… for a cocktail… but liquor hurts my tummy something fierce… So i’ll settle for the ale I just finished! πŸ˜€ At least I can usually handle wine or ale (not such a fan of beer).
    I can imagine the flavor the bloody Mary mix adds — what a fabulous idea. The color looks perfect! As always your step by step photos are wonderful. Thanks for this great idea and another mouth-watering post. Mega hugs!
    (PS… no news on either of the Texas interviews… I really thought I was getting an offer from the second one, Edinburg.)

      Oh shoot, so sorry you haven’t heard anything from the interviews. Of course you could make this without the vodka, I’m not sure if it added much flavor to it except to “complete” the Bloody Mary part. At least you can have a wine or ale here and again. Fantastic episode today too! Huge hugs back Teagan! xoxo

    It even has vodka in it! Ha ha. This looks good, Kathryn. I’ve made stew with beer, but never with bloody marys. Great idea to freeze the mix too. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll have to have a bloody mary tomorrow to start the recipe off πŸ™‚

    Thumbs up to using bloody mary to season anything. The recent issue of Food Network had a grilling recipe by Guy Fieri using bloody mary in a flank steak recipe. I saved that recipe as well as yours πŸ™‚

      Oh yes, it was fabulous! I used a very spicy mix and the stew had a fabulous “kick” to it that wasn’t too spicy at all in the end. Thank you Marisa!

    That looks particularly tasty Kathryn. I’m sitting here in shorts, having expected to barbecue for the family. It has started to pour rain and thunderstorm. Temperatures dropping. Time for a different plan. That stew looks particularly appealing.

    Never thought of this, but then again I’ve never had a Bloody Mary.
    I usually don’t cook potatoes and beef together, because the beef will dry out if cooked at a temperature high enough to cook the potatoes (ie 185F). Not a problem though if you have good (marbled!) beef.
