When preparing stew, you can be creative with flavors and textures. Whether you opt for a classic version with carrots and potatoes or a bolder dish with exotic spices, stew offers endless possibilities for delicious meals.


Stew is truly a tradition in the Netherlands, and everyone enjoys dishes like grandma's stew. You can use various cuts to stew. Through slow cooking at lower temperatures, tough stew meat becomes so tender that it almost falls apart. Stew can be prepared in a skillet or a cast-iron Dutch oven.

How long to cook?

Stew requires slow cooking to achieve the best result. The secret is slow cooking, allowing the less tender pieces of meat to slowly transform into soft, tender pieces. The cooking time varies depending on the type of meat and the size of the pieces. On average, stew should simmer for at least one and a half to three hours over low heat. This process gives the enzymes and collagen in the meat enough time to break down, resulting in a deliciously tender outcome. It takes a while, but when your dish is ready, patience pays off.
