“Ever come home from work and want the comforting taste of a good old-fashioned stew? You don't have to wait for the weekend. A good quality meat is important so the stew cooks quickly. Of course, it's better when simmered for three hours but even one hour's cooking will produce a satisfying stew when prepared this way.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roughly chop garlic, onion and celery and then chop in a food processor; cut beef into small, 3/4 inch cubes or cut into strips, the size of index finger; heat oil in a Dutch oven and saute beef until browned.
  2. Add chopped vegetables from food processor, tomato paste, thyme, bay leaf, parsley, salt and pepper; stir well to mix; add stock and wine and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
  3. While meat is simmering, boil carrots and potatoes until tender-crisp, 5-10 minutes; drain and add to stew; add peas; the entire cooking time for the stew is 45 minutes; if stew is too thin, dissolve starch in 1 T cold water and whisk into stew; simmer 2-3 minutes and serve.
