DIRECTIONS

  • Coat beef with flour, shaking off excess.
  • In a large kettle, heat 2 tbsp oil over medium-high heat.

  • Remove and transfer on a plate.
  • In the same kettle, add 2 tbsp oil and add onion and mushrooms.
  • Saute for for 6 minutes.
  • Add garlic and saute for 1 minutes.
  • Pour off fat.
  • Return beef to kettle, stir in tomato paste, broth and and water just enough to cover.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until beef is tender. (I simmered for about 2 hours for tender meat - acerast).
  • Add carrots, potatoes, and green beans.
  • Cover partially and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. (The vegetables took about 20 minutes to cook and I simmered them an additional 30 to help them develop flavor - acerast).
  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water.
  • Stir in stew.
  • Bring to a boil for 1 minute.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
