Per serving


Stovetop, Pot (large), Knife


Carrots (fresh)

Step 1

Wash or peel the carrot & cut it into 2 inch pieces.


Step 2

Wash the potatoes & cut them into 2 inch pieces.

Baby bella mushrooms (whole)

Step 3

Clean & cut the mushrooms into 1 inch pieces.

Yellow onion

Step 4

Peel & cut the onion into 1 inch chunks.

Beef (chuck, cubed)

Step 5

If the beef isn't already cubed, cut it into 2 inch pieces. Add the beef to a mixing bowl & season it generously with salt & pepper. Add half of the flour & mix together so all of the beef gets coated in the flour.

Olive oil

Step 6

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pot on medium-high heat. Add the beef & sear it on all sides for about 8-10 min. Once the beef is nicely browned, add it back into the mixing bowl & set aside.

Step 7

To the pot, add the carrots, onion, mushrooms & potatoes. Season with salt & pepper. Stir & cook for 4-5 min, or until the veggies begin to soften.

Red wine

Step 8

Add any additional seasonings to the pot, we suggest onion powder, garlic powder & Italian seasoning. Then add the wine & stir.

Beef broth

Step 9

Add the beef back to the pot along with the beef broth. Add just enough broth to cover the beef entirely. Bring the liquid to a boil, then lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover & cook on low for about 1.5 - 2 hrs or until the beef & veggies are tender.

Step 10

In a small bowl, add softened butter & the remaining flour. Stir to create a paste, then add it into the pot & mix. Let the stew boil for 2-3 min & allow the consistency to thicken.

Peas (frozen)

Step 11

Add the peas & stir. Remove the stew from the heat, serve & enjoy!
