Flavorful and Comforting One-Pot Beef Stew Recipe Is a Warm Bowl of Deliciousness

Pearl onions and carrots cook up to tender perfection in this recipe that preps in just 10 minutes.

Beef stew is one of my favorite cold weather comfort foods. It’s the ideal meal to warm up on a chilly weekend. Our One-Pot Beef Stew recipe cooks up low-and-slow in the oven for several hours. Best of all, it’s a pretty hands-off meal to make. Just a few short steps are all it takes to get this hearty dish into the oven and onto the table.

First, start with a well-marbled cut of beef. Next, be sure to brown the beef. Searing seals in juices, plus the little brown bits that form on the bottom of the pot add rich flavor. For best results, pat the meat dry, then sear at medium-high heat in batches to prevent steaming. Then brown the vegetables to caramelize their natural sugars. Lastly, stir in broth and tomato sauce and pop it into the oven. Then, kick back, relax and watch a good movie while this One-Pot Beef Stew recipe cooks itself to tender perfection.
