Recipe: Hearty Beef Stew with Pasture-Fed Stewing Beef
- 2 pounds pasture-fed stewing beef, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
- 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1 cup red wine (optional)
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
- In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
- Add the pasture-fed stewing beef pieces to the pot and brown them on all sides. This enhances the flavor of the stew. Once browned, remove the beef and set it aside.
- In the same pot, add chopped onions and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onions become translucent.
- Return the browned beef to the pot.
- Add the carrots, potatoes, beef broth, and red wine (if using). The wine adds depth to the stew but can be omitted if preferred.
- Toss in bay leaves and dried thyme. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it simmer for 2-3 hours, or until the stewing beef is tender and the flavors have melded.
- Check the seasoning and adjust salt and pepper if needed.
- Serve the hearty beef stew hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of freshness and color.
