Directions

  1. Stir the flour and black pepper on a plate. Coat the beef with the flour mixture.
  2. Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until well browned, stirring often. Remove the beef from the saucepot. Pour off any fat.
  3. Stir the broth, water, thyme, and bay leaf in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Return the beef to the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Add the carrots and potatoes to the saucepot. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the beef is fork-tender and the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Made enough for 8 people and it was ALL GONE! Used olive oil vs. vegetable oil and the beef was mega tender. Overall a basic good tasting Beef stew.

Very good base recipe. I made a couple changes to suit our families taste. I used 2lb meat, added 1/2 onion, diced, when I browned the meat. Also added 3 cloves of garlic, chopped, when I added the broth and 1 1/2 cup chopped celery when I added the carrots. I didn't add potatoes to the pan but served the stew over mashed potatoes instead. Big hit with the Hubby & kids!

Skip the thyme and bay leaf next time. Add 1 can of beer and beef bullion to taste. Serve with french bread.
