Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb. stew meat
  • 4 large carrots peeled & chopped
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 large bay leaf or 2 small
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas
  • mashed potatoes

Instructions

  • In a large pot or deep skillet, brown stew meat in olive oil until browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Pour in onions, carrots, garlic, and spices. Cook another 5 minutes. Deglaze pan with beef broth. Cover and simmer 2-4 hours or until meat is very tender. (This would be perfect to cook in the crockpot!) 
  • When you are ready to serve, remove bay leaf. In a small bowl, stir softened butter and flour together until smooth and incorporated. Stir butter mixture into the stew with the frozen peas. Once the gravy thickens slightly, it's done. Serve hot over mashed potatoes.
