1In a large dutch oven, heat oil over medium high heat to just smoking. Add beef in batches and brown. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl, set aside. After all meat is browned and removed add onions to the pan with the beef drippings, and the bone if using then cook for 5 minutes stirring occassionally. Add rest of veggies and cook about 5 more minutes.
2Stir in the tomatoes, broth and seasonings.
I like to add a soup bone at this point then cook. It is optional, but I believe you get a better flavored stew. It's up to you.
Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
Remove from oven. Remove 2 cups of broth into small saucepan. Bring to boil and add cornstarch mixture, stir until thick. Pour thickend sauce back into stew and mix well. Serve with fresh bread or rolls!
