  • 1 onion
  • 4 carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 6 Yukon potatoes
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2.5 lbs chuck roast
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  • Wash all of your vegetables. Peel your carrots. Cut the carrots and celery about 1.5-2 inches. Dice up the onions and mince your garlic. Quarter the unpeeled yukon potates.
  • Trim the chuck roast by cutting off and sliver skin found. Keep the fat on as that is going to create lots of flavor and help make the meat more tender after it's cooked and simmered. Cut up the beef into 2-inch cubes and salt liberally.
  • Heat up a frying pan on medium heat and add in your olive oil. Once your oil is good and hot go ahead and add your beef chunks to the pan.
    Allow the beef pieces to brown on all sides and then set them aside in the dutch oven.
  • Saute your onions and garlic in the same pan that you cooked your beef in. Once they are soft and somewhat translucent add in your tomato paste and stir it around the pan.
    You only want to cook it a little making sure that you don't burn it.
  • Add in a 1 cup or so of red wine to deglaze the pan and then add in about a 1 cup of beef broth. Slowly whisk in the flour making sure it does not clump up.
  • Combine that sauce with the cooked beef in the stew pot. Add in the rest of the wine and beef broth and mix it all together. Bring it to a boil uncovered for a few minutes.
  • Cover the stew pot and put the heat on low to simmer. Let it cook for about an hour.
  • After it has simmered for an hour, go ahead and add in your carrots, celery, and potatoes. Continue to simmer with the cover on for another 30 minutes or so.
  • Check the beef and vegetables to see if they are tender. Now it's ready to serve!
