Today Jane from Mary and Martha is sharing how to can beef stew. I’ve canned beef before, but never a stew. I really think I should give it a try! Nothing like having healthy foods from your own garden (or you at least know where they came from) all canned and ready to heat for easy meals or surprise company!

How to can Beef Stew:
8 lbs. of Beef Cubes
3 c. onions, chopped
A shake of dried garlic, to taste!
10 c. carrots, sliced
4 c. celery, chopped
14 c. potatoes, peeled and chunked
8 c. beef broth
salt and pepper to taste
Brown meat in a large pot. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Ladle stew vegetables into jar leaving a one inch head space. It’s okay if the vegetables are still raw. Using the cooking broth, ladle the broth over the vegetables, leaving a one inch headspace. Process quarts for 90 minutes and pints for 75 minutes at 10 lbs. pressure.
