You can make your own Beef Stew Seasoning instead of buying it in the store. It’s flour, salt and seasonings. That’s all. You can make a full cup of seasoning with the flour you’ll dredge the meat in for about .25 cents. You can’t go wrong! And as always, start here and then adjust it to suit your personal tastes if you’d like!

This beef stew seasoning is also excellent with deer, moose, bear, elk and other wild game. Trim fat from the meat. Rinse and dab away excess water but don’t pat it dry. Mix the meat and seasoning together in a bowl. I use butter to brown the meat. Follow a stew recipe from there, or if you cook like I do, wing it from here on out.

  • 1 cup AP Flour

  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 3 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons onion powder

  • Whisk all ingredients together. This stores well in a Mason jar in a dark cupboard or drawer.
