Beef stew


4 Lbs Beef Chuck Roast (cut into cubes)
1 Onion (diced)
3 Ribs Celery (diced)
3 Carrots (diced) + 4 Carrots (sliced)
2 Cups Russet Potatoes (quartered)
4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1/3 Bottle Cabernet Wine
1 Tbsp Rosemary (chopped)
2 Sprigs of Thyme
2 Bay Leaves
4 Cups Beef Stock
3 Tbsp Corn Starch + 6 Tbsp Cold Water (slurry)
Olive Oil
Parsley (chopped)
Salt and Pepper


In a large bowl add the beef cubes and season with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

In a large pot or Dutch oven on medium heat. Add oil and sear the beef in batches. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside.

Next add diced onion and caramelize slightly. Add celery, carrots, and garlic. Sauté till fragrant then season with salt and pepper.

Once the vegetables are softened, add tomato paste and brown slightly. Deglaze with red wine and bring to a simmer. Add the seared beef back to the pot along with rosemary, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover with beef stock. Season with more salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and braise in the oven set to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 1.5 hours.

After 1.5 hours, add sliced carrots and potatoes. Continue to braise for another 1.5 hours until the beef is tender and the potatoes are soft. Next combine corn starch and cold water together making a slurry. Add the slurry to the simmering stew a little at a time until thickened to your desired thickness. Adjust the seasoning to your taste. Serve in a bowl and garnish with chopped parsley.
