Ingredients
  • 1 pound beef bottom round
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons oil, more as needed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, or more if preferred, sliced thinly (optional)
  • 2 cups stock, wine, water, or a mixture
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs, or a handful of herb sprigs; oregano,savory,rosemary, etc.
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, if needed

  • Cut meat into small cubes, about 1". Mix 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 2 tablespoons flour in a plastic or paper bag. Add the meat cubes, a handful at a time, and shake to coat.
  • Heat oil in a heavy skillet or Dutch oven and brown the meat over medium heat. Don't crowd the meat - brown in batches, if necessary, using more oil if needed. Add onion and garlic, if using, and cook until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add liquid, herbs, carrots and potatoes. Cover, adjust heat to maintain a simmer (don't boil! ) and cook until meat is done and vegetables are very tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • If using sprigs of herbs, remove before serving. If broth seems too thin, mash several potato chunks from the stew into the broth or thicken with cornstarch: mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoon water to a smooth paste, stir into the broth, and boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed.

"I found the. Be This is excellent for those watching their diet. However, I found the beef to be chewy, but it tasty. I think next time I'll add sweet potatoes over regular potatoes. There's room to experiment with recipe and make it moe interesting."
