– Stew Meat – Olive Oil – All-Purpose Flour – Potatoes – Beef Broth

Prepare stew meat by cutting roasts or steaks into 1" pieces. Pat dry with a paper towel, and then lightly dust with flour.


In a large Dutch oven pot, add a few tablespoons of cooking oil on medium-high heat. In batches, add stew meat in a single layer, leaving space between the meat so it can brown.


Once browned, remove the stew meat and set aside. Repeat until all the stew meat is browned.


In the same Dutch oven over medium heat, add the minced onion and deglaze the pot with about a cup of water or red wine.


Scrape the bottom of the pot with a spatula to make sure you get up all of the browned bits, then caramelize the onions until they are golden brown.
