Winter Oven Beef Stew Recipe

“This is a great cold-weather meal,“ says Bettina Turner from Kernersville, North Carolina. “I love it because everything‘s in one pot. Add a good loaf of bread and you’re all set.“

"This is SO good. I prepare it all the time in the fall & winter. In the summer I'll fix it EARLY in the morning before the sun rolls around & reheat individual portions in the evening. SO yummy, and easy!"

"The flavor of the stew is good. If you use this recipe watch how thick you cut the vegetables. Too thick, and they won't be done in time as per recipe. Too thin, you end up with mush. If you want thick cut vegetables, put them in the Dutch Oven with the meat. As an added extra to the flavor, a 1/4 cup of red wine makes a good enhancement,

One thing I didn't like about this recipe was how the meat is coated with flour. There is a simpler way to do this, without having to coat the meat in batches. Simply put the flour and meat in a large bowl, and give it a good tossing. When browning the coated meat, keep the batches down to at least two. Three is okay, but more than that and you'll spend a lot of time in front of the stove. After the onion and garlic are are sauted, add 1/4 cup of red wine to deglaze the pan. It adds a nice zing to the flavour."

"We loved this stew & made the following changes. Deglazed the pan with red wine, added a package brown gravy mix & more spices. Yesterday we had our 1st snow, stew & buttermilk biscuits warmed the house up :-). I highly recommend using a Dutch oven, it makes a huge difference in flavor."

"Wanted to try out my new Dutch oven so found this recipe. Thrilled, we loved the stew, served over egg noodles. I did add 1/4 tspn dry mustard and 1/2 tspn Worchestershire just because they were staring at me on the shelf above the stove and didn't have any thyme in the house. Will definitely make many times this coming cold season. A winner."

"Extremely simple and extremely delicious. Made it for my wife, who doesn't like tomatoes, and she absolutely loved it. Said it was the best stew I had ever made. We enjoyed it with a nice bottle of wine and after the meal we fell into each other's arms and discovered a new way to keep warm during a cold November night. Highly recommend, good for both pros and novices."

"This was my first beef stew ever, and it turned out deliciously. I was a little worried after I had browned and removed the meat and added the onions, as the oil and bits of beef still stuck to the bottom seemed to be turning darker and darker and it even started to smell a little burnt. So I removed it from the heat and let the onions sautee on a very low heat after a couple of minutes. When the completed dish came out of the oven, however, it tasted great and all of the black charred gunk on the bottom had disappeared. Very pleased and will make this again."

"My dutch oven is bare cast iron (not good with tomatoes) so I did this in a clay cooker (Romertopf 109) with no modifications to the recipe. It prepared perfectly! For the clay cooker it probably could have had the liquid reduced a little but as written it worked just fine. Next time I might toss in some mushrooms at the end and maybe some sliced bell pepper or zucchini in the middle."

"Response to Mrshall07: Until a few months ago, I didn't know what a dutch oven was either. I love to make soups, stews, chili, etc and kept finding recipes that used a dutch oven. Finally, I bought one (Lodge brand) at a Kitchen Collection store and have made many awesome recipes with it. I would recommend getting one with a porcelain glaze like mine. The alternative is the plain cast iron type. While these are also very good, the cast iron reacts with tomatoes and is therefore not a good choice for me. Whatever the brand, a dutch oven is a great thing to have. You should be able to find one in most stores that sell decent pots and pans. Also, I would recommend getting a large one like my 6 quart. Good luck and congratulations on your recent marriage."
