Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System: Beef Stew Recipe – Giveaway

I already have another Ninja appliance in my kitchen so I was more than thrilled to hear about the new Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System. I have a traditional slow cooker machine but was immediately impressed at how many uses it has.

This week I needed a quick and healthy meal for my family. I tested out the cooking portion of the Ninja Cooking System and created a simple and filling dish.

Beef Stew Recipe


  • beef stew meat
  • 2 small onions chopped
  • 1/2 bag sliced carrots
  • 2 cups of celery chopped
  • 15 small potatoes chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 3 tbsp beef base
  • 5 cups of water

I simply added everything in it and set the timer on high for 4 hours. I had a simple and healthy meal for my family and I didn’t have to do much of anything. The meat was perfectly cooked and it came together beautifully.

You could easily cook this on low for even longer and just start it in the morning for a dinner that night. The Ninja Cooking System is so easy to use and the display is easy to read. I can’t wait to try making cookies!It’s the perfect kitchen gadget for fast and easy meals, it just cooks faster!!

The Ninja Cooking System would be the perfect gift to give this holiday season. It sells for $199.00 and has a 5 year warranty!

    I would cook corned beef and cabbage. I love that it is so easy to use and I can cook it on low all day!!

  2. Penny B W says

    I would use it for pot roast! I love that you can use it for baking as well as cooking a meal!


  3. Alesha says

    I cant’ help imagining cooking a whole chicken with stuffing— I would love to see how it turns out. I really love the fact that the ninja cooks faster than the oven and with less fat.

    Single working dad / two kids right here, this thing would all kinds of rock! I could see using it to dual purpose a couple meals – night one slow cook a pork roast with potatoes, carrots, etc, started in the morning before going to work, then the next night turning the leftover roast into BBQ. Just looks like an awesome way to put out some quick meals for the kids that don’t involve hot dogs or pizza!

    I would make chili! Yum! I love how fast it cooks! My meals are always made in a hurry after work. This would help so much!
