Ingredients: Beef Stew Recipe

2 1/2 lbs. chuck roast ( 1 1/2in. cubes )

1/2 cup flour

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/3 cube butter or margarine

1 1/2 to 2 cups good red wine ( I used a Merlot )

1 qt. beef stock

4 to 5 cloves fresh garlic ( sliced thin )

1 shallot ( sliced thin )

2 tbsp. fresh rosemary ( chopped )

2 tbsp. fresh oregano ( chopped )

2 tbsp. fresh parsley ( chopped )

1 tbsp. fresh cracked pepper

1 tbsp. salt

3 carrots ( sliced thick )

1 stalk celery ( small dice )

1 1/2 to 2 lbs. small red or yukon gold potatoes ( 1in. cubes )

1 cup pearl or petite onions ( fresh or frozen )

1 1/2 cup peas ( fresh or frozen )

Method: Beef Stew Recipe

Heavily dredge your beef chunks in the flour. Add olive oil and butter to a 5 to 8 quart stock pot and heat to medium high. After the butter has melted add your beef chunks and brown on all sides and remove to a plate. This is best done in batches. To much meat at one time in your pot will tend to steam the meat and it will not sear the way you want it to. Put just enough meat at one time to cover the bottom of your pot with one layer.

After your meat has been browned and removed to a plate take your pot away from the burner and add your wine and beef stock. It is always a good idea to remove your pot or pan when adding alcohol to prevent a fire or flare up. Place your pot back on the burner and add the celery, garlic, shallot, rosemary, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Add your meat back to the pot and reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 2 hours covered stirring occasionally.

After 2 hours add your carrots and potatoes and simmer for 30 minutes, covered. After 30 minutes add your onions and simmer for 15 minutes, covered then add your peas and simmer another 15 minutes, covered. Time to eat! Serve with your favorite bread and a salad… yummy! This beef stew recipe makes 8 to 10 servings.
