How to make Easy Homemade Beef Stew

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees F.

Step 2: On all sides, season the beef chunks with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with flour and toss to coat.

Step 3: In a large Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the beef in batches. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side until brown. Place the cooked beef on a plate and set aside.

Step 4: Into the same Dutch oven, add the onions, garlic, and carrots. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes until a bit brown, stirring occasionally.

Step 5: Add in the potatoes, beef broth, tomato paste, bay leaf, thyme, and Worcestershire sauce. Scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pot using a wooden spoon.

Step 6: Simmer, stir, then add the beef back. Cover with a lid and place the pot into the prepared oven.

Step 7: Cook the stew until the beef is very tender. This takes around 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Step 8: Take the bay leaf out and season the stew according to taste. Enjoy warm.

Note:

If you like more broth to the stew, feel free to add another one to two cups of water or extra broth.
