DIRECTIONS

  • Season beef with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large dutch oven over medium-high heat and brown beef in batches, without crowding. Transfer browned beef to bowl or platter.
  • Add more oil to pot if needed. Cook onions until soft, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook one minute more.
  • Add wine and coffee. Bring to a boil over high heat. Scrape up browned bits in bottom of pot with a wooden spatula.
  • Return beef to pot and add thyme and bay leaf. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer until beef is almost tender, about an hour and a half.
  • Add veggies to the pot. Continue cooking until beef and veggies are tender, another 30 minutes.
  • Mix butter and flour together to form a paste. Stir in to simmering stew a pinch at a time until desired thickness is achieved. Discard any remaining butter and flour paste.
