I love stew. With winter finally settling in here in Dallas, yes I can hear the moaning from all my friends in Detroit, it’s the right time to start cooking stew. I also opened up one of my Christmas gifts early since we were not going to drive to Michigan with it for the holidays and well I knew what it was because I’m the one who ordered it. So, with some 40 degree temps this past week and a new La Creute Dutch Oven, it was time to find a new beef stew recipe.
Yes, I actually found this recipe doing a Google search and it showed up in the top few results. The Beef Stew with Carrots & Potatoes recipe from the Once Upon a Chef blog leveled whatever recipes I have in cookbooks, stuffed in files, or saved on a computer. This is the best beef stew I’ve ever made or tasted.
Fortunately, it’s pretty simple too and finds the right blend of wine, broth and water for a richly covered sauce. Meanwhile the beef nicely falls apart and the potatoes and carrots are done to perfection.
If you have been looking for the perfect beef stew recipe, try this. I doubt you’ll be disappointed and quite possibly, like me, you’ll be throwing away the other recipes that never quite satisfied.
