Lots of prep, but it’s wonderful and gets better the next day, if it lasts. We usually double this recipe. Good quality ingredients yield optimum results.
2-3 lbs. beef chunks, (I use chuck underblade) cut into 1” cubes with fat removed as much as possible
2 onions, chopped coarsely
6-8 carrots, peeled and chopped into 1-1/2” chunks
2 lbs. green beans, chopped in 1-1/2” pieces
3 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-1/2” chunks (can also use red potatoes)
1-2 cans good-quality beef gravy
Gravy Master seasoning liquid
3 good quality bay leaves
Better-Than-Bouillon beef base
Brown meat in canola oil in big pot under medium-high heat, add onions, 1-1/2 cups water and 2 tsp. Better-Than-Bouillon beef base, 3 tsp. Gravy Master, bay leaves, kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper. Let simmer covered for ½ hr.
Add carrots and green beans. Let simmer another 20 minutes. Add cubed potatoes. Simmer 30-45 minutes. Add beef gravy and simmer 15 more minutes.
This recipe is perfect for adjustment to your personal preferences and experimentation, and every time I make it, it is a little different. Jake throws some red wine and garlic into the mix when he makes it. The kids love the basic recipe. You can add your own special touches.
Serve in bowls with fresh rye bread for dipping in the gravy.
