Don’t let the cold weather get you down. Warm up with this incredibly cozy and hearty beef stew! In our opinion, this pairs perfectly with fresh french bread from the bakery!

Ingredients:

2-4 tbs. oil

3 lb. chuck roast, cubed

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 onion, chopped

4 carrots, cut into thick slices

4 yukon potatoes, chopped

4 cups beef broth

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 bay leaf

1 tsp. thyme

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbs. butter

2 tbs. flour

 

Instructions:

Heat a large pot over medium high and add oil. Add cubed beef and brown on all sides. Once browned, remove from pot.

Melt butter in pot and add onion, carrots, and potatoes into the same pot. Let soften for 10-15 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Once softened, season with salt and pepper. Add flour and tomato paste and stir for 5 minutes to cook out the flour taste and brown the tomato paste. Add beef broth slowly.

Once all of the beef broth is added, add bay leaf and thyme and simmer for 2-2 1/2 hours. Serve and enjoy!
