It seems like you’re looking for a recipe for beef stew. Here’s a classic recipe for Beef Stew:


  • 2 pounds stewing beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 4 large carrots, sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Brown the Beef: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the cubed beef and brown it on all sides. Remove the beef from the pot and set it aside.
  2. Sauté Onions and Garlic: In the same pot, add the chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté for a few minutes until the onions become translucent.
  3. Deglaze the Pot: Pour in a bit of beef broth to deglaze the pot, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add Remaining Ingredients: Return the browned beef to the pot. Add the remaining beef broth, bay leaves, dried thyme, and dried rosemary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 1.5 to 2 hours or until the beef is tender.
  6. Add Vegetables: Add the sliced carrots and cubed potatoes to the pot. Simmer for an additional 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  7. Add Peas: About 5 minutes before serving, stir in the frozen peas. Cook until they are heated through.
  8. Serve: Remove the bay leaves and discard them. Taste the stew and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed. Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
