I shopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond over the holidays and picked up the Ninja Cooking System Cooking Easier, Healthier & Better cookbook.
So far, I have made the Hearty Beef Stew from this cookbook. Dave and I loved it! The gravy came out rich and thick, the way we like it! The folks at Ninja gave me permission to share the recipe below! In case you’re not familiar with the Ninja Cooking System, you can actually brown the beef on the STOVETOP setting and then add the rest of the ingredients and turn it on SLOW COOK. It’s so nice to do everything in one pot! No extra pans to clean!
This is my kind of meal on a cold, winter day!
Give it a try!

From: Ninja Cooking System (Cooking Easier, Healthier & Better)
PREP: 10 minutes COOK: 7 hours, 10 minutes SERVINGS: 8 (small) or 4 adult-sized portions
2 lbs. beef for stew (I prefer chuck.)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 ½ cups beef broth
4 red potatoes (I use all-purpose or russet potatoes.)
2 onions, cut in quarters (One onion is enough for us.)
1 cup baby carrots (I use 5 large carrots instead.)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
1 cup frozen peas, thawed (I leave these out.)
- Season beef with salt and black pepper. Coat with flour.
- Pour oil into pot. Set to STOVETOP HIGH and heat oil. Add beef and cook uncovered 10 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in broth, potatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, and thyme in pot. Set to SLOW COOK LOW for 7 to 9 hours. Cover and cook until beef is fork-tender. Stir in peas during last 10 minutes of cooking time.
