Beef Stew Print Email

The alcohol in the wine evaporates during cooking, leaving an intensely flavorful sauce. The cook time is long, but mostly unattended.

1 1/2 pounds stew beef, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 tablespoon herbes de Provence
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup frozen pearl onions (onions do not need to be defrosted)
2 cloves garlic, pushed through a press
2 cups red wine (Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon)
1 pound green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 carrot, cut into 1 inch ribbons with a vegetable peeler
2 tablespoons ThickenThin Not Starch thickener

1. Heat oven to 325 F. Toss beef with herbs, paprika, salt and pepper. Heat half the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown half the beef; transfer to a bowl. Repeat with remaining oil and beef. Set aside beef.

2. Melt butter in Dutch oven. Add onions; cook 7 to 8 minutes until onions begin to brown. Add garlic during last 2 minutes of cooking time. Add reserved meat and accumulated juices, wine and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Cover Dutch oven and place in oven. Cook 2 hours, until beef is tender.

3. Add green beans; cook 15 minutes more, just until beans are tender. Transfer Dutch oven to stovetop over medium-high heat. Add carrot; cook 5 minutes. Stir in thickener; cook 2 minutes more, stirring, until sauce thickens. -
