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!

    • Use any other type of vinegar instead of cider vinegar.

    • Use fresh grated ginger (about 1 tsp/5 mL) instead of ground.

    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.
