Our timesaving starter makes it easy to prepare a hearty beef stew—even on the busiest weeknights. We’ve simmered ripe tomatoes, fire-roasted peppers, chilies, dark beer and other premium ingredients for hours to achieve the depth and complexity of a homemade sauce.

Beef Stew

Season 3 lb. (1.5 kg) boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 1 1/2-inch (4-cm) cubes, with salt and pepper. In a large fry pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. oil until just smoking. Working in batches, brown the beef on all sides.

If using a slow cooker, transfer the beef to the insert and add the Beef Stew Braising Sauce. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Add 3/4 lb. (375 g) small red potatoes, halved, and 1/2 lb. (500 g) carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces. Cover and continue cooking until the beef is fork-tender, 2 to 3 hours more.

If using an oven, return all the beef to the pot, add the Beef Stew Braising Sauce, potatoes, carrots and 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) water; bring to a simmer. Cover the pot tightly with foil and place the lid on top. Transfer to a 350°F (180°C) oven and cook until the meat is fork-tender, about 3 hours. If the sauce is too thick, stir in 1/2 cup (125 ml) water during the last 15 minutes of cooking.

Serves 6 to 8
