Mindy Ilar’s stew brims with home-cooked comfort. The St. Albans, West Virginia cook dresses up the dish with sirloin, turkey bacon and a variety of herbs, making it special enough for company.


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 turkey bacon strips, diced
  • 8 small red potatoes, halved
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup Burgundy wine or additional reduced-sodium beef broth
