Green Pea Stew with Meat

I think it is one of the most popular and simplest recipes. But still, small details matter that will transform it from a common food into a delicious one and, by the way, very appreciated by children. I don't understand why, but most kids love green peas - I use them at the moment and put some more meat there to complete our and Sofia's diet.


Beef meat
500 g
or other meat you prefer
Frozen green peas
1 kg
White onion
1 piece
1 piece
Tomato paste
1 tbsp
Sunflower oil
50 ml
Salt and pepper
1 tsp
add to taste
1 tsp

Step by step

Step 1

The meat is washed and cut into medium pieces, diced about 1.5 cm.

Heat the oil in a saucepan or chop, add the meat and cook until lightly browned.

Step 5

When it has completely thawed, add enough water to cover all the food, when it starts to boil, make a low heat and leave it until the meat is ready. I leave it for at least an hour no matter what kind of meat I put, it will taste better and more complete.

Step 6

After the meat is done and the peas are well cooked, add salt, pepper and paprika to taste.

I know that many of you tend to put a lot of spices, but be careful not to overdo it - add 2-3 flavors.

Step 7

Optionally, if you want a more consistency of food sauce you can make a kind of flour mixture with water and with it you will have a better sauce.

So, put 1 tablespoon of flour in 100ml of water - mix well with a whisk.

Step 8

Add this mixture to the food and mix well. Notice that it will immediately change its texture, the sauce becomes a little thicker.

I put this optional mixture, if it boils more, the pea itself forms a good and thick sauce - if you want to help it, pour a little flour with water.

Let the food boil and ready, turn off the heat.

Step 9

Serve hot food, and if the meat is not fatty even cold.

In the vegetarian and fasting version (or as a garnish) omit the step with meat - so cook the onion and carrot and go the same way.

Good appetite!
