Beef Stew Seasoning Mix
It’s winter as of writing, and y’all know what that means, stew season!! Because there’s nothing like a nice flavorful stew as you watch the snow come in, right?!
That’s why I had to share this beef stew seasoning mix with you all today. This stew seasoning is an easy-to-make recipe, very quick, and super versatile too! You can store it for up to a year, which means it’s definitely a winner to pull out at the end of tiring days.
While it’s meant to go along with beef stews (as the name suggests, ha!!), you can use it to add flavor to any kind of stew or soup. You can also use it to season any kind of meat for any recipe. Just give your meat of choice a nice roll in this seasoning mix before roasting, grilling, adding to a pie, and, of course, stewing!
Now I want to huddle up with some thick blankets and a big bowl of beef stew, and it’s not even dinner time here. Or very cold yet, actually! Regardless, no time is a bad time for a comforting bowl of beef stew – and this seasoning mix is a flavorful addition!
In my humble opinion, it’s better than anything you can get at the store … especially since you can adjust it to your liking! Enjoy!

How to make Beef Stew Seasoning Mix
To make stew spices, you just need to mix all the ingredients in a bowl. That’s it! Very complex.
Then, to use the spices, just toss them with about 2 lbs of stew meat before you brown it. You can also just add it right into your stew broth.
Beef Stew Seasoning Mix: FAQs
This gives you 1/3rd of a cup! Like I said above, you can easily double it (or more) if you need a lot.
One easy way to add some more kick to your stew seasoning is to just toss in a pinch of cayenne pepper or chipotle pepper!! About 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon should be a good starting amount. You can add more to taste!
You’ll want to use it up within six months to a year.
Just keep it in an airtight glass container or sealed zip-top bag somewhere cool and dry! (Somewhere, ideally out of the sun as well, like a cabinet or cupboard.)
While I think this seasoning is absolutely perfect, you can use it as a base to make changes! Besides adding some heat (see above), some tweaks I’ve seen people make include:
– adjusting the amount of black pepper
– adding marjoram, thyme, bay leaves, or ground sage
– adding brown sugar or cinnamon to balance out the saltiness
