DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large pot (I use my 5qt cast iron dutch oven).
  • Saute garlic and beef until beef is browned on all sides and some of the liquid, if any, has cooked down.
  • Add onions and cook until translucent.
  • You can add a little bacon grease or cooked crumbled bacon at this point if you like, for extra flavor.
  • Add tomatoes, beef broth, V-8 juice, wine, red wine vinegar and seasonings; cover and simmer 1 hour.
  • Add potatoes, peas and carrots and simmer 1/2 hour to 1 hour or until vegetables are tender but not mushy.
  • In a small cup dissolve cornstarch in a little cold water and stir into stew to thicken.
  • Taste and reseason as necessary; serve with biscuits or crusty homemade bread.
