What is the best way to freeze stew meat?

Cut into cubes. Stew meat may be browned before freezing, if desired. Pack browned cubes in meal size portions in rigid containers. Cover with pan liquid or broth, leaving one-half inch of headspace. Label and freeze. Pack un-browned cubes in rigid containers, freezer bags or sheet wrapping, excluding all air. Label and freeze.
