For the Beef Stew:

  • 1.5 pounds (680g) stewing beef, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

For the Bread Bowls:

  • 4 round bread loaves (such as sourdough or Italian)
  • Butter for brushing (optional)


  1. While the stew is simmering, prepare the bread bowls. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Cut a circular opening from the top of each bread loaf and remove the inner bread, leaving about a 1/2-inch thick bread shell.
  3. Optional: Brush the inside of each bread bowl with melted butter and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes or until the insides are lightly toasted. This step helps keep the bread from getting too soggy from the stew.

To Serve:

  1. Ladle the hot beef stew into each bread bowl.
  2. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and flavor.
  3. Serve the beef stew in a bread bowl while it’s hot and enjoy your hearty and comforting meal!

This Beef Stew in a Bread Bowl is perfect for a cozy dinner or a special occasion. The combination of tender beef, savory vegetables, and the rustic bread bowl makes it a delightful and filling dish.
