Beef Stew Recipes
You can make this beef stew in the oven or a slow cooker. Either way, in two simple steps, you will have a warming, wholesome, and wonderfully flavorful meal.
Aromatic and satisfying, a comforting bowl of beef stew always hits the mark on extra chilly nights. Here, seared pieces of marbled beef simmer away until fall-apart-tender in broth, with punchy aromatics added to it like tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, red wine, and fire-roasted tomatoes for a subtle smokiness.
Beef simmered with garlic and peppers in a thick tomato sauce makes for a warm and satisfying dinner. A slow cooker turns a less expensive cut of meat into a flavorful stew. Serve it in flour tortillas or spoon over rice.
For the best flavor, season the meat with salt and pepper the night before and store, covered, in the refrigerator.
Affordable chuck roast is a great choice for stews because it becomes tender and flavorful as it simmers. Cutting the meat into small pieces shortens the cooking time.
