Lauren's Latest. This can also be done in the crockpot. Serve over Perfect Mashed Potatoes =)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large pot or deep skillet, brown stew meat in olive oil until browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Pour in onions, carrots, garlic and spices. Cook another 5 minutes. Deglaze pan with beef broth. Cover and simmer 2-4 hours or until meat is very tender. (This would be perfect to cook in the crockpot!)
  2. When you are ready to serve, remove bay leaf. In a small bowl stir softened butter and flour together until smooth and incorporated. Stir butter mixture into the stew. Once the gravy thickens slightly, it's done. Serve hot over mashed potatoes.
