The most fun thing about stews, soups, or chili is that we can change it every time we make it. So I think you could say this is a preliminary blueprint.
We like it with big hot chunks of artisan bread to dip in and sop up.
I usually add about a half teaspoon of Blue Agave as a sweetener; some prefer a bit of sugar, or no sweetener at all.

How to Make My Oven Baked Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. In a plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add beef chunks, several pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Save remaining flour.
  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a Dutch Oven heat the oil over medium-high heat and brown the beef, onions and garlic together. Gradually stir in the broth, tomatoes, Worcestershire Sauce, thyme and kosher salt. Cover and bake in pre-heated oven for 1 1/4 hours.
  3. Add the potatoes, carrots, celery (and turnips, if using). Cover and bake 1 hour longer or until meat and veggies are tender.
  4. Thicken with reserved flour that you've stirred with a bit of water. Cover and cook on stovetop until thickened, about 10 - 15 minutes. Stir in thawed peas; cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
