Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine (optional)

  • Fresh parsley for garnish

Preparation Steps:

  1. In a bowl, toss the stewing beef with flour, salt, and black pepper until well coated.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Brown the beef in batches until it develops a golden crust. Remove and set aside.

  4. Pour in beef broth and red wine (if using), scraping the bottom to release any flavorful bits.
  5. Add tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves. Stir to combine.
  6. Return the browned beef to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  7. Cover and simmer on low heat for 1.5 to 2 hours or until the beef is tender.
  8. Add carrots, potatoes, and frozen peas. Simmer for an additional 30-40 minutes or until the vegetables are fork-tender.
  9. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Remove bay leaves.
  10. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
  11. Ladle the Best Ever Beef Stew into bowls and savor the comforting flavors.
