Beef Mince & Pea Stew

Beef Mince & Pea Stew Recipe

When you are looking for a comforting stew that won’t have you spending hours in the kitchen, this Beef Mince and Pea Stew is just what you need. Budget-friendly beef mince is enhanced by a few simple spices and combined with peas, potatoes, carrots and tomatoes for a satisfying stew that your family will love. You’ll only need to put in about 20 minutes of work; the stove does the rest for you. What’s more, this one makes for great leftovers! I love to serve this with rice, which does an amazing job of soaking up the flavour from the stew, but you could easily call this a complete meal on its own.

  1. This was fantastic and so easy! I also added in some sweet potato I had leftover in the fridge to use and stirred through some frozen spinach for added veggies. It made such a generous amount! We are using the leftover tonight to make pies!
    Certainly going to become a regular on our menu rotation!

    • Good Morning Kayla! Oh my gosh, this is so wonderful to read! I love the idea of adding the frozen veg and sweet potato, so delicious and such a fantastic way to make the meal stretch that little bit further. I’ll definitely give it a try. Thank you so much for trying the recipe and taking the time to leave a comment! Nic x

  2. I thought that might have been it but wanted to check in case I was missing something! Thanks so much! I love your recipes! xx

    • Thank you so, so much, means more to me than I can tell you! Nic x

  3. Hi!
    What makes this one unable to be frozen?!
    Thanks so much

    • Good Morning Kayla! I’ve found in the past the mixture hasn’t been wet enough to cover the potatoes and they turn a little bit mushy after being frozen. In saying that, you could definitely freeze it for up to 3 months, just bearing in mind the texture of the potatoes won’t be quite the same as when it was cooked fresh. I hope that helps. I haven’t made this dish in ages and you’ve reminded me to make it again! The kids love it! Nic x
