“This is the best beef stew I've ever tasted. My husband ate 4 bowls the first time I made it and my 9-month-old ate two bowls mashed up! I like to brown my beef for stew, and I hate to dirty both a pot and the slow cooker, so I prefer to cook the stew exclusively on the stove.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Combine beef stew meat and flour in a resealable plastic bag; seal bag and shake to coat beef.
  2. Melt butter with olive oil in a large pot over high heat; add beef and season with seasoned salt. Cook and stir beef until seared on all sides 5 to 7 minutes. Stir onion into the beef; cook and stir until the onion is browned, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Pour enough of the beef broth into the pot to cover the bottom; bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add remainder of the beef broth; bring to a simmer before adding carrots, potatoes, celery, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, basil, paprika, and garlic powder.
  4. Bring liquid to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook stew at a simmer until the meat and vegetables are very tender, 3 to 4 hours.

I have to say I enjoyed this recipe, I made it for one of my clients, she's elderly and lives alone. So I cut back on the ingrediants. I think it made her day, having something hot cooking on the oven, and it smelled, well like "home!" She enjoyed telling me stories while I chopped and cooked. I did it on the stove also, I prefer to do all my cooking on the stove. My only change was I chopped everything very very small. It was great, I will definetly make this again! I loved the difference the searing the meat did!! Thanks!!

This will stick to your ribs! I omitted the potatoes since I was serving it over noodles, but otherwise would include them. I did toss in some Baby Bellas, which I halved. My biggest change was to eliminate the butter and cut the olive oil back to 2 tbs and browning my meat in 2 batches. I used G'ma's old cast iron Dutch oven so after assembling all and bringing to temperature, I put it in a 275F oven for most of the afternoon. Thanks for sharing!

Best beef stew I've ever made! I added a bay leaf and some thyme, otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. Will definitely be making again and again!
