Why This Homemade Beef Stew Recipe Is Simply Delicious

We all love using our crockpots, right? Well, I must admit, I do too but there are times when stovetop cooking is the way to go.

There are certain recipes that deserve the stovetop and for good reason. In the past, I would make my beef stew recipe in my slow cooker and well, when I compare them, there’s no comparison.

More so, while the slow cooker version was delicious, the stovetop version is so much better.

Also, I use an ingredient that not many folks use when cooking Beef Stew. While you might use it in your recipe and it’s not a surprise, many folks seem to leave out.

So, what is it? Wine! Yep, and wow. It truly transforms the recipes and the amount you use matters as well.

Total Time 2 hours 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds Beef Cubes (Top round preferred Trimmed and Cubed)
  • 1 Bunch Celery - peeled and chopped into small cubes (by a bunch I mean a typical grocery store bag)

  • 1 Large Vidalia Onion - chopped
  • 1/4 Cup of Fresh Parsley - chopped
  • 6-8 Cups of Beef Broth
  • 1 Can (6oz) of Tomato Paste
  • 2 Cups Red Dry Wine (Preferably Merlot or dry wine)
  • 4 Cups of Water
  • 4 Tablespoons Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons Cornstarch for thickening
  • 1 tablespoon Onion Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes (You can omit but the flakes add a little spicy wonderful flavor)
  • 1/4 Canola Oil
  • 1 Bag of Yukon Gold Potatoes (You can use russet potatoes and peel and cut them into larger sections but I just love the baby Yukon. Plus, you can leave the tasty skins on!)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Bag of No Yolk Wide Noodles

Instructions

  1. In a large stockpot, (medium heat) saute the beef and onions in oil until golden brown.
  2. Lower flame - add about two tablespoons of flour and beef broth.
  3. Add vegetables and let cook for about 15 mins.
  4. Add wine, make sure you stir the mixture
  5. Add tomato paste and stir well.
  6. Add water
  7. Add potatoes
  8. Add all spices
  9. Cover and let cook for about an hour stirring at least every 12-15 mins.
  10. When the potatoes and vegetables are soft enough to easily cut with a fork, make a flour and water mixture.
  11. Add flour and water mixture and stir well. (I typically use about one cup of water and add the flour and mix very well)
  12. Add cornstarch and water mixture and stir until the sauce thickens to your liking.
  13. We prefer a thick sauce and depending on how thick you like your sauce, you might have to add more cornstarch.
  14. Cooke Noodles and serve the stew over them.

  1. Fantastic recipe! And I agree, wine makes the difference, provides a depth of flavor that can’t be replicated. I do not eat red meat all that often, but my ex hubster is having foot surgery soon, and I will to stay with him for the first couple of weeks. Big batch cooking will keep me busy! This will fit the bill. Only changes I will make will be to use pearl onions as I have a good 20 pounds or so to use, and skip the potatoes and noodles, and make creamy mashed potatoes or noodles – his choice, and serve the stew on top. We need to watch all the carbs and starch. Purely a personal preference. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Shopping list updated and recipe pinned.

  2. What a great idea! I would love serving this over potatoes too. Also, the pearl onions! I haven’t tried them in ages. I hope his foot surgery goes well. I had two of them so I know what that’s like. When you said you don’t eat red meat a lot, that made me think. I bet this would be great with chicken too. It’s always a joy hearing from you, Naomie. Let me know how the surgery goes too. Take care my friend!

  3. Thank you so much! He will be fine, keeping him still with his foot elevated in the beginning will be the challenge, as he is used to moving all day. He has movies, a zillion tv channels and sports to watch, plus he reads quite a bit. And yes, this would be good with chicken. Will give that a try too! Our Dutch ovens will be getting a good workout! Thanks again and will keep you posted.

  4. The beef stew looks great heart warming on a chilled night, I’ll be making a large pot soon, Thank you.

  5. Hi Deborah,

    Thank you! It’s so delish and the leftovers are amazing too. I hope you get to try it someday. I know you will love as much as we do. Thanks so much for stopping to let me know. I really appreciate it!
    Thanks
