The warmth of the dish spreads from the stomach to the soul, comforting and nourishing in equal measure.

  • 2 lbs beef stew meat, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the beef cubes and brown them on all sides. Remove the beef and set it aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the garlic, onions, carrots, and potatoes. Sauté until the vegetables are slightly tender.
  3. Return the beef to the pot. Pour in the beef broth and red wine. Add the diced tomatoes, thyme, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the stew simmer for 2 to 3 hours, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  5. Once the beef is tender and the vegetables are soft, remove the bay leaves and thyme stems. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
  6. Serve the hearty beef stew in bowls, allowing the warmth to embrace you with every spoonful. Pair it with a slice of crusty bread for the perfect chilly day meal.
