Beef stew is a wonderful comfort food. I love, love my mom's recipe. I saw this recipe while I was on Betty Crocker website. So I thought I would give it a try. Glad I did, my family loved this. There's a lot of great recipes on that site.

My mom's recipe took a few hours to cook. This version takes 30 minutes to cook. Great weeknight meal the family will love. It's easy and tasty. So good. My mom's recipe is still the best, that's my thoughts. I think, a great stew must always have beef, potatoes and carrots. This recipe has those ingredients plus mushrooms. The spicy mustard adds a lot of flavor to the gravy in this stew. The leftover taste even better the next day. 

Skillet Ground Beef Stew
Recipe adapted from Betty Crocker

1 pound ground beef
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons flour
1 (8 oz) package fresh mushrooms
1 3/4 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons spicy mustard
2 large potatoes, unpeeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

In 12 inch skillet, over medium heat, place ground beef in skillet and Worcestershire sauce, cook about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in salt, pepper and flour. Add mushrooms, cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add beef broth and mustard to beef mixture. Stir in potatoes and carrots.

Reduce heat to medium low, cover, cook for 15 minutes, until vegetables are tender and sauce is slightly thicken. Sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy!

Cooks note: If sauce is to thin at the end of cooking process, increase heat to medium high and cook uncovered another few minutes until the liquid reduces and slightly thickened.
