There’s nothing quite like a hearty bowl of Beef Stew with Carrots & Potatoes on a cold, blustery day! This classic dish has been a favorite among families for generations, and for a good reason – it’s packed with rich, savory flavors and wholesome ingredients that will warm you up from the inside out.
To make this delectable dish, you’ll need a few key ingredients: tender chunks of beef, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomato paste, beef broth, and a handful of flavorful herbs and spices. Begin by searing the beef in a hot Dutch oven until it’s browned and crisp on the outside, then remove it from the pot and set it aside.
Next, sauté the aromatic veggies until they’re fragrant and soft, then add the tomato paste and let it cook down to a rich, caramelized paste. Add the beef broth, stirring to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot, and add the beef back in along with the herbs and spices. Let the stew simmer until the meat and vegetables are tender.
The result? A mouthwatering, soul-warming stew that’s perfect for cozy nights, family dinners, or even special occasions. The tender beef melts in your mouth, and the vegetables add a delightful sweetness and heartiness.
