The Best Wiener Stew Recipe

The Best Wiener Stew Recipe

This wiener stew recipe is hands down the best Wiener Stew recipe that you’re going to come across. The addition of the tomato sauce mixed with curry powder makes it unique among wiener stew recipes. 

It’s the one that my mom made when I was a kid. 

In fact, I still have the recipe card she wrote out for me when I moved into my first home.

It was a family favorite then. And it’s a family favorite now. Inexpensive, delicious comfort food that will have your family coming back for seconds

For the veggies start with the basics of diced potatoes, carrots, onion and celery.

Then add what you’ve got in your pantry or freezer. I had a few parsnips and a sweet potato so I added those to the recipe I’m showing you today.

Use what you have available.

Got bits of frozen veggies left in a bag in the freezer? Throw those in the stew to use them up.

Like most stews, it’s even better the second day but you’ll likely need to add more wieners because everyone always hunts through to find more wieners to their bowl!

 

How to Make Wiener Stew

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 medium sweet potato, also cut into bite sized pieces

If the gravy of the stew isn’t as thick as you’d like, mix another tbsp each of flour and water in a glass. Stir that into the stew and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.

The bread bowls are homemade but if bread baking isn’t your thing, you can pick up small round loaves from you local bakery.

As mentioned above, stew always tastes better the second day.

Make sure to add more wieners (you’re going to need more) and then heat it up in a large pot on top of the stove.

Serve with homemade focaccia or bread of your choice.

This stew also freezes really well so any leftovers can be ladled into freezer safe containers and frozen for up to 3 months.
