Bachelor Amateur’s Spicy Beef Stew for 80

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/04/11

A 20-quart pot recipe for a week’s worth of joyous beef-lover engorgement, full of veggies and starch. This is meant as an only dish for a hearty meal.

Recipe Details
20 quarts
Prep Time:
approx 45 minutes
Cook Time:
approx 2 hours
Ready In:
approx 3 hours

6 lbs round steak cubed
5 lbs red onions whole
5 lbs white onions whole
3 lbs canned green beans
2 lbs baby carrots
2 lbs canned whole tomatoes
4 lbs canned stewed tomatoes Italian or Mexican style
16 oz can tomato juice
3 lbs potatoes quartered
8 oz bottle hot sauce
16 oz jar hot salsa (optional)
1/8 cup minced onions
1/8 cup oregano
1/4 cup chili powder (optional)


1. Trim fat off round steak, cube, and brown in 1/4 inch of water, covered, on low heat. (likely 2 batches)
2. Add remaining ingredients in 20 quart pot.
3. Fill each empty can half full of water and add to 20 quart pot.
4. With colander, drain steak and rinse.
5. Add steak to 20 quart pot.
6. Boil on range-top (I use 2 burners under the pot) until carrots are fully soft.
7. Each succeeding reheating of leftovers is moderately better if you reheat the entire quantity each time.

There is no need to peel the potatoes. The skin, which is nutrient-rich, will be as soft as the rest of the potato.
