How to make beef stew

  • Season stew meat with salt and pepper. In a medium size braising pot on high heat add oil and seasoned stew meat.  Sear the meat for roughly 10 minutes stirring the meat around periodically.  Then add all the vegetables and cook for another 5 minutes.  Then add your wine and reduce by half.
    Add your stock or water and another 1 tsp of salt.  Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer, add your herbs and cover.  Cook for about 1 1/2-2 hours and then add the potatoes to the stew. Cover for another 25 minutes until both the meat and potatoes are tender all the way through. Thicken the stew by taking your cornstarch slurry and pour it into the stew. It should thicken the stew to a nice consistency. Cook for 5 more minutes and finish by seasoning the stew with more salt and pepper if need be and chopped fresh parsley. Serve and enjoy!
