  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 lb. Beef Chuck Stew Meat (cubed into 1″ pieces)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Cup Onion
  • 2 medium-sized Carrots (peeled and cut into rounds)
  • 2 Stalks Celery (chopped)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 3 Medium Russet Potatoes (peeled and cut into large chunks)
  • 4 cups Beef Broth
  • 2 teaspoons Thyme
  • Parsley (freshly chopped)


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Season beef with salt and pepper then add to pot and cook on every side until each cube is seared. Transfer beef to a plate when done.
  2. In the same pot, add remaining vegetable oil and cook the onion, carrots, and celery until soft. This usually takes about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add beef back into the Dutch oven and then add potatoes, broth, and thyme. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer until beef and potatoes are tender. 30-35 minutes.
  4. Serve warm and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
