“I threw this together last night and the husband was thrilled. The stew came out very beefy and the leeks added a nice touch. This is a great 1-pot meal as I cooked the macaroni directly in the same pot using the stew juices. After a quick prep step I just left the pot on low heat and left to go to a park.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil.
  2. Saute onions and carrots until onions are soft.
  3. Add beef, salt, pepper, and brown.
  4. Turn heat to low and tightly cover with lid, let simmet for about 30 minutes. This will bring all of beef juices out.
  5. Add a can of broth, cover, and let cook for 1-3 hours (the longer it cooks the more flavor it will have, but 1 hour is plenty).
  6. Chop leek into large pieces, add to the stew.
  7. Add macaroni (any small-sized pasta will do).
  8. If there is not enough liquid you can always add a little bit of water
  9. Once the macaroni is done it is ready to serve.
