Beef Stew is one of my all time favorite comfort foods. Tender beef roast cooked low and slow in wine and beef broth. I added carrots and potatoes to make it a meal.

This Beef Stew is AMAZING! Super comforting, hearty and perfect for winter. Best of all everything is made in one pot!

How to make Beef Stew

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl toss beef in flour and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron pot. Once hot add in beef in batches making sure not to overcrowd the pan. (I did 3 batches)
  • Brown meat on all sides, 2-3 minutes. You may need to add more oil as you go. Take beef out of the pot and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the same pot. Add in onion and cook until browned and slightly tender, 2-3 minutes. Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Pour in wine and deglaze the pan. Scraping up the bites on the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in tomato paste, beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add beef back into the pan along with the carrots, potatoes, bay leave, thyme and rosemary.
  • Cover and place in the oven. Cook for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • Skim off some of the excess fat on the top and take out of bay leaf and sprigs of herbs. Serve warm!

A couple tips for making this Beef Stew

  • Sear the meat in batches. Overcrowding the pan with steam the meat instead of browning. Browning the meat gives it a nice caramelization and helps to keep the juices inside.
  • Make sure to use wine that you would actually drink not cooking wine off the grocery shelf. This makes a huge difference.
