This old-fashioned beef stew recipe by Foods101withDeronda on YouTube is a classic one-pot recipe that is cooked in an oven until tender. The recipe calls for a brown sear on the beef cubes before adding them into the stock and vegetables. It’s an easy and simple recipe to make during the wintertime that is comfort food. This beef stew makes for a day of leftovers or for a family. Plus, it’s loaded with flavors all in one pot with the tomato sauce, and beef stock.
First, add flour to the bottom of a plastic bag with black pepper. Then, add the cubed beef and toss it around until all of the beef is covered in the flour mixture. In a dutch oven or large pot that is oven safe, add oil over medium-high heat, and place the beef cubes to cook when the pot heats up. Sear each side until golden brown color.

Next, once all of the stew vegetables and broth is added, add the beef cubes back into the pot. Bring it to a boil and place it in a preheated 350F for about 50-60 minutes.
Overall, I love old-fashioned recipes because they are simple recipes that may have been passed down from grandparents. The homemade recipe that is easy to follow along is more pleasant to make without the complicated ingredients. This stew is hearty and filling.
