“This is a good stew for OAMC (once a month cooking) since it doesn't have any potatoes and thus will freeze well. Fresh made cheesy dumplings finish off the meal.”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and celery and sauté for about 4 minutes; remove and set aside. Place beef cubes in pot, increase heat to medium high, and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to brown evenly. Return aromatic vegetables to pot, add beef stock, red wine, bay leaves and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring stew to a boil, then reduce heat and cook 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Remove cover and sift in flour (I use a wire strainer) and stir to thicken liquid. Add carrots and cook an additional 20 minutes. If making dumplings they would be added at this time.
