Beef and Potatoes


  • Coat the beef cubes in flour and a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • In a large Dutch oven, heat some of the oil over medium high heat and brown the beef cubes in batches, being careful not to over crowd the pot.
  • Remove the beef from the oil, and add the garlic and onions, stirring frequently until they begin to brown, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and cook for another 2-3 minutes until it begins to lightly brown.
  • Add the beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, thyme and bay leaves.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Simmer, partly covered for 1½ to 2 hours until the beef is tender.
  • Remove the lid, add the potatoes and cook for an additional 30-40 minutes until tender, and the liquid has reduced. Season again with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove the bay leaves, thyme and rosemary sprigs and serve.
