Asian Beef Stew

Asian Beef Stew is a traditional Chinese beef and vegetable stew. This slow-cooked beef stew recipe is hearty, delectable, and incredibly simple to prepare!

A lamb stew inspired this Asian beef stew I tasted in Hong Kong a few years ago.

When the weather is chilly in the winter, lamb stew is a favorite dish among Hong Kong residents since lamb is a “heaty” meat and the clay pot stew complements it by providing warmth to the body.

As I am not a lamb lover, I substituted beef for the lamb, and the outcome is just as exquisite.

Believe it or not, it is almost September, and the weather is about to drop up, so this Asian beef stew recipe will come in useful if you want to give it a go.
