Beef stew stands up to bold seasonings and heightens more subtle ones. On busy days, try our slow-cooker beef stew recipes.

recipe

To make the rich, brown sauce that is key to the flavor of this dish, it is important not to rush the initial searing of the meat. To make peeling the pearl onions easier, soak them first in warm water for 15 minutes.

recipe

Slavic peasants created this stew using three basic ingredients: equal parts beef and onions, and a healthy dose of paprika. Whether you use sweet or spicy Hungarian paprika, it should be fresh, with a pungent aroma.
