Classic Beef Stew Recipe For Dinner – Natasha’s Kitchen

Hi everyone! Its Natasha of and today i’m sharing our family’s classic beef stew. It is so hearty and
flavorful and the beef is so tender, it just melts in your mouth. In a large oven
safe pot, preferably a Dutch oven, we’re gonna saute six ounces of chopped bacon.
Stir that over medium heat until it’s golden brown and the fat is released,
then remove it to a separate dish. While the bacon is cooking, stir together two
pounds of chopped beef with half a tablespoon of salt, a teaspoon of black
pepper and a quarter cup of flour. Stir that together until the beef is evenly
coated. Transfer half of the beef into the hot bacon fat and cook over medium
high heat or until the beef is browned – about three minutes per side. Add a
little more olive oil if needed, then add the second half of the beef and cook
until browned. Transfer the browned beef to the bowl with the bacon, add 2 cups of
good red wine to the pot and bring it to a boil, scraping the bottom to deglaze
the pot. Add one pound of thickly sliced mushrooms and simmer over medium heat
for 10 minutes. Roughly chop up four carrots into half-inch thick pieces, also
dice 1 medium yellow onion and chopped 4 garlic cloves. Place a large nonstick
skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then add the
sliced carrots, diced onion and chopped garlic. Saute that for 4 minutes, stirring
frequently. Once the onions are soft, add a tablespoon of tomato paste and saute
another minute. Then transfer the veggies to the pot. Add four cups of beef broth and season
with two bay leaves, half a teaspoon of dried thyme, a teaspoon of salt and half
a teaspoon of black pepper. Add the beef and bacon back to the pot, then stir in 1
pound of small potatoes. You can cut these in halves or quarters, depending on
how large they are. You want bite-sized pieces. Stir to combine and make sure the
potatoes are submerged in liquid. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, then transfer
to a preheated oven and bake at 325˚F for an hour and 45
minutes. Oh yes! Just in time for dinner and I am ready because the smell in my
house is making me so hungry. Ok let’s do this.
Are you ready? YUM! mmm… okay and then before I serve it, I like to skim off the
extra fat; makes it just a little bit healthier and you don’t really need that
extra oil on top and it’s super easy to do. Just tilt your pot and spoon it up. And very important, I always love to add
a little bit of garnish because it adds that fresh pop of color and flavor. And
so I’ve got a little bit of parsley here. You can use dill if you like dill.
There – isn’t that pretty? Okay, here we go. Oh my goodness and this
is just loaded with all the good stuff! It is so hearty and it’s really a meal in
itself. I’d like to serve it with a fresh crusty
French bread. [bread crunch sound ] That sound gets me every time. Okay, here we go. Oh my goodness and
that beef is just fall apart tender. My spoon goes right through it. Okay and
this is still really hot so. Oh my goodness this is gonna be a good
dinner, literally that beef just melts in your mouth and there’s so much flavor.
Adding the wine to the broth just really elevates the flavors and pulls them all
together. So good! I cannot wait to eat this for dinner and my kids love it,
which is like major win for Mom and it’s fancy enough for a nice dinner
party. This seriously has really really good flavor, such a cozy thing for winter
and if you’re not a mushroom lover, you can still enjoy this because if you
thickly slice the mushrooms, they are easy to avoid and if you love the
mushrooms… oh, I love thick sliced mushrooms. All right, I am gonna go call
my kids for dinner because I’m hungry. If you enjoyed this video, give me a great
big thumbs up below and if there are any videos you’d like to see on our channel

  73. maryshome8 says:

    I followed this recipe exactly. Even weighed the meat and after two hours in the oven, I had raw veggies and tasteless beef soup. I had to add corn starch to thicken…turned up the oven by 25 degrees, and had to add another hour. Flavor was nothing to write home about. Very bland.

  74. Tampabruh says:

    I did this recipe with my Ninja foodi and sauteed the vegetables (I added celery, too) and it turned out soooo good. Thank for the recipe and great innovative video tutorial to go with. You have a refreshing attitude and goes and long ways when doing your videos.
