Old-Fashioned Beef Stew – A cozy and hearty stew recipe packed with flavor, topped with crispy bacon, and perfect for those cool nights!
So we’ve had temperatures in the 80’s during our Christmas season down here in Louisiana. It’s felt very strange, and I really don’t like spring weather trying to impose itself on this time of the year. But I’m still going to cook those comfort foods that are perfect for all the cold weather like this Old Fashioned Beef Stew.
I love this recipe so much. It is hearty and just screams comfort food. I think I will be making it again very soon!

- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- In a large dutch oven pot, brown bacon and remove with a slotted spoon. Set aside.

- Bring it to a boil. Cover and put in oven to cook for 1 hour. After 1 hour, remove pot and carefully add in potatoes. Cover again and place back in oven to cook for another 45 minutes. Remove carefully from oven. Serve into bowls and top with fresh parsley.
