How to make hearty beef stew
- In a medium bowl toss the stew beef with the flour and set aside.
- Heat a dutch oven (I use a 7qt) or heavy bottom pot to medium-high heat. Add half of the vegetable oil and add half of the meat, sprinkle half of the salt and pepper. Cook 3-4 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove and repeat with the rest of the beef.
- Add in the rest of the oil and add the carrots and onions and cook 3-4 minutes.
- Add in the garlic and tomato paste and cook another 1-2 minutes.
- Add in beef broth, wine, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and rosemary. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer on medium-low for 1 hour.
- Add in chopped potatoes, then cover and simmer until tender about 45 minutes.
- Add in frozen peas and let heat through 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve!
