Sabroso Saturday: Argentinean Beef Stew

by Migdalia

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)!  The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!


This week I am noting an Argentinean Beef Stew recipe I discovered eleven years ago in a Land O’Lakes recipe collection. My sons have grown up with it and love the sabor/taste, while I love that its low in calories.  Its also extremely simple and quick to make.  Overall, its a scrumptious win-win for all!

Argentinean Beef Stew

  • 1 tablespoon Land O Lakes Garlic butter with Olive Oil
  • 3/4 pound beef top round, 1/2 inch thick, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 medium (1/2 cup) carrot, chopped
  • 1 small (1 1/2 cups) butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 dried peaches, quartered
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounce) beef broth
  • 1 can (7 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. In 2 quart saucepan melt butter until sizzling; add beef cubes. Cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned- about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT parsley.
  3. Continue cooking until mixture comes to a boil, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium. Cover, cookm stirring occasionally, until beef and vegetables are tender (14 – 16 minutes)
  5. Stir in parsley.


You can eat the Argentinean Beef stew alone or over rice, with a side salad!

¡Buen provecho!

    Yum, dried peaches are something I pick up in store and end up munching as a snack. Using them in this recipe will be fun to watch as they plump up.
