Beef Stew Over Cheese Grits

About this time last year we were visiting my parents and my daddy served us the most unforgettable meal - beef stew over cheese grits. When I asked him for the recipe he told me there really wasn't one- just a little of this and a little of that. But he gave me a little run down of how he made this goodness come together.

So here's the jist of it....

Ingredients for the stew
2 packages of stew meat {comes already diced and packaged in the beef section of the grocery store}
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 large onion
5 carrots
2 baking potatoes
4-5 yellow squash
1 large container whole white mushrooms
beef bullion
several cups of water
1 beer {I used Bud Light}
Worcestershire Sauce
a little paprika

I used the Pioneer Woman's recipe as my model to cook and assemble this stew. The only difference in mine is that I added a lot more vegetables, liquid, and beef bullion. Sorry for a lack of specifics but PW explains the process so well. I basically cooked the meat and veggies in batches, sauteing them in a big pot, setting them aside - and then finally putting them all together in the pot and pouring in liquid.

Ingredients for the cheese grits
quick Cooking Grits
cheddar cheese
cream cheese
chicken broth

All I did was make grits in chicken broth according to package directions, then I added desired amount of cheeses. 


The stew makes approximately 10-12 servings. So I made grits for 10-12. We ate it for several meals and shared half with a friend with a new baby.

Try it and tell me what you think. If you have questions, leave them in the comments and I'll answer them in the comments.

Trust me. This one is good.


  1. This was/is fantastic! I just made a big pot for dinner tonight. I love all of the veggies you have added. I am hoping my 18 month old does too:)
