I know I’m sooooooorta pushing the limits of winter here with beef stew seasoning mix. I have a beef stew recipe coming too–oh well, I’ve never claimed to be a perfect blogger.  I make what sounds good! Plus, one of my readers sent me an email requesting this recipe. My taco seasoning recipe has been so popular and I don’t blame people for wanting to eat real food instead of some chemical mixture packed with sodium to make it taste semi-decent.

I gladly accepted the challenge of making an all-natural beef stew seasoning that would add great flavor to stew but still allow you to control the amount of sodium and spices. I absolutely love the way this turned out.

Updated: Check out stew I made with it.

What is in Beef Stew Seasoning Mix?

  • Flour – it helps the stew thicken!
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Parsley
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Celery Seed
  • Onion Powder
  • Salt and Pepper

These spices and herbs together make the most flavorful beef stew – you’ll be ditching the packets in no time! It works on the stovetop or in a slow cooker recipe.

As a side note, if you’re not a huge fan of pepper, make sure to read the comments! Some people find this to be too peppery. You’re only using 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture per 1 pound of stew meat and you want it to be well seasoned, so I obviously think it’s great the way it’s written! But you can always add more pepper at the end, so if you’re unsure, start with a smaller amount.

    So 2-3 tablespoons on top of it amount the meat was tossed into? 

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      You toss each pound of meat with 2-3 tablespoons of seasoning. (Not exactly sure what you’re asking…hopefully this answers your question.)

  2. Phyllis Mays says:

    Rachel, how would I make this dark brown like German stews?

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      I would use a mix of dark beer and beef broth when making your stew. Brown your meat well in oil before adding liquids. Hope that helps!

    2. Jeremiah Twofeathers says:

      Liquid smoke will darken it up pretty good. Any dark beer is also a good choice if you like beer.

      1. Rachel Gurk says:

        Those would both be good additions to stew!

  3. Kay says:

    Sorry I’m not sure if this is a trivial question- but the 2 to 3 tablespoons of spice per pound, does that already include the flour or excluding the flour?

    Thank you!

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      Including the flour! :)

  4. Quinn says:

    Best stew I’ve ever made it was delicious 

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

  5. Celia says:

    Absolutely adore this recipe!! For years, I have been searching for a good seasoning mix for Beef Stew. Now I have it. THANK YOU!!

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      Oh I’m so glad to hear that! Thank you for taking the time to come back and leave a comment!

  6. Marion Phillips says:

    I made this and it was truly delicious. I took Rachel’s comments on the pepper on board and left the cayenne pepper out as I don’t like it much. I will never buy a packet from the shop ever again.

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      Oh I am so glad you liked it! Thank you for taking the time to come back and leave a comment, it means a lot to me. :)

  7. ANGELIQUE C HAWLEY says:

    EXCELLENT MIX. YES I USED IT.

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      So happy to hear that! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

  8. Lou says:

    Made this tonight. Delish! I did reduce the pepper in the recipe and substituted 1/2 the onion powder with garlic powder. The flavor was fantastic. Thanks so much for posting.

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      So glad you liked this recipe! Thank you for taking the time to come back and leave a comment! I love the addition of garlic powder.

  9. Ashlee says:

    What do the celery seeds do for the taste? 

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      They add a mild celery flavor. I love them in this!

      1. Alex Christian says:

        Could I substitute celery salt for the celery seed or would that drastically change the flavor?

        1. Rachel Gurk says:

          You could, but you’ll want to decrease the salt as well.

  10. Claudette says:

    Way too much pepper! I wish I would have read the comments before not after I added the spices as you specified.

    1. Rachel Gurk says:

      Sorry to hear that – so many people love this recipe, too!
