A bowl of hearty Asian stew is hard to resist. Although Austin never gets cold in the winter, and although it regularly gets above 100 F during summer, I crave stew constantly.
You know, it is just so easy to make and so rewarding. You might think the recipe ingredient list for a stew always looks long, but most of the time it requires very little active cooking time.
Stew is the perfect dish to cook on the weekend. Just get the cooking started and sit back. The aroma of the spices is soothing and will help you relax. Freeze a portion of the stew, so you can save a bowl of happiness for the next week.
Today, I want to share my top 10 Asian stew recipes with you. The flavorings might be different from the ones you normally cook, but I promise, you’ll find them comforting nonetheless. Here we go!

Awesome round up, Maggie! Thanks for featuring my recipe!
Maggie…loving all of these cozy dishes but especially your Sichuan Fish with Pickled Mustard Greens. Gorgeous photo and I bet it is so tender and full of flavor. Pinning!
Nice roundup. Many thanks for including my recipe in there.
Didn’t realise Asia was so small. What ever happened to Beef Rendang (a spicy beef stew) which was ranked as the most delicious food in the world in 2011, and what about butter chicken from India, which to me seems like the most popular meat stew in US.
