A Hearty and Flavor-Packed Stew

To start, you’ll need two pounds of beef tri-tip or roast, cut into generous inch-and-a-half cubes. Heat up a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add a little oil, and brown the beef for 7 to 10 minutes until it’s beautifully seared all over. Once done, transfer the beef to a large pot, capturing all those caramelized bits by deglazing the pan with half a cup of water. Add the deglazed liquid to the pot, and let the magic begin!

Building Layers of Flavor

In the same pan, add some more oil and sauté a mirepoix of carrots, onions, and celery for about four to six minutes until they caramelize and become fragrant. Toss in minced garlic and cook for another minute. Transfer the mirepoix to the pot, and now it’s time to tackle the mushrooms. Melt some butter in the same pan and sauté thinly sliced mushrooms until golden brown. Season them with salt, sprinkle in two tablespoons of flour to thicken the stew, and cook for another minute.

Infusing Depth and Richness

Back to the pot, add a cup of red wine for an incredible depth of flavor. If you prefer not to cook with wine, you can substitute it with more beef broth. However, the wine truly elevates the taste. Additionally, pour in a cup of tomato sauce, a few tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, sugar, Italian herbs, salt, and cracked black pepper. Finally, add four cups of beef broth and give everything a good stir.

Simmering to Perfection

It’s time to let the stew simmer and work its magic. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for an hour to an hour and a half. The longer it simmers, the more tender and flavorful the meat will become.

The Finishing Touches

After the initial simmering time, it’s time to add the final ingredients: baby potatoes and frozen sweet peas. Cook the stew for an additional 20 minutes until the potatoes are fork-tender. Once done, garnish with freshly chopped parsley, and your masterpiece is ready to be enjoyed!

This beef stew is thick, chunky, and packed with flavors that will leave you wanting more. The combination of beef broth, red wine, tomato sauce, and a medley of herbs and spices give this stew its irresistible taste. Every spoonful is a comforting delight!
