In Hawaii, Hawaiian beef stew is referred to as “local beef stew.” It’s hearty and filling, with tender beef, carrots, and potatoes. Best served with a large bowl of rice.


  • 1 pound beef stew meat (boneless chuck roast, cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 35 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, chopped


  1. In a pot, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Pat the beef dry, lightly salt it, and brown it on all sides over medium-high heat. Remove the beef to a plate once it has browned.
  2. If necessary, add more oil to the pot. Sauté the onions and garlic for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. Mix in the tomato paste. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until the tomato paste becomes a darker, brick red color.
  4. Combine the whole peeled tomatoes, bay leaves, and 1/2 cup water in a mixing bowl. Reintroduce the beef. Bring the water to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low. Cover and leave to simmer for an hour.
  5. Remove the lid and return the heat to medium-high. Combine the celery, carrots, and potatoes in a mixing bowl. If necessary, add more water (you want to be sure all the meat and vegetables are covered). Bring the water to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for another hour with the lid on. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with a large bowl of hot rice.
