Easy Beef Recipes:
Peachy Beef Bake
This is one of the most delicious easy beef recipes I know! Even very inexpensive cuts of beef stew meat cook up tender, moist and very tasty.
This recipe is very easy to make: just blend the peaches, put everything into a casserole dish, give it a quick stir, and bake. There are not even any mixing bowls to wash!
This dish takes at least 2 hours to bake. Be sure to allow lots of time!
This makes a larger meal than most of my easy beef recipes. Adjust the amounts if you have a small family or a small appetite!

Ideas for making this recipe your own
- Instead of blending the peaches, what would happen if you left them in chunks?
- How about trying another sweet fruit instead of peaches? How about pineapple? Plums?
- Serve some peach slices on the side.
- Store opened bottles of Worcestershire sauce in the fridge for maximum flavor and quality. You can keep a refrigerated bottle of Worcestershire sauce for at least 2 years.
