Beef Bourbon Y’all

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Medium

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 2 hour 40 minutes

Servings: 4



  • 1 (15 oz) can with juice diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • 3 lbs cut into 2-inch cubes beef chuck
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup trimmed and cut in 1/2 green beans
  • 2 cups quartered new red potatoes


Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy pot with a lid. Season the meat all over with House Seasoning and sear in a single layer. Remove the beef to a plate and add the green bell pepper, onion and celery to the pot and sauté until softened. Return the beef back to the pot and add the bourbon, diced tomatoes and enough stock to cover the beef. Bring up to a boil and then lower to a simmer with the lid on ajar. Simmer for 2 hours or until beef is very tender. Then add the corn, green beans and red potatoes. Simmer 10 to 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
