How to Make Oven Baked Beef Stew


  • 1Pour the wine over the beef in a glass or ceramic bowl (metal will give the wine an "off" taste).
  • 2Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours to marinate.
  • 3Reserving the marinade, drain the beef and dry on paper towels.
  • 4Simmer the bacon for 10 minutes in enough water to cover.
  • 5Drain and pat dry (this rids the bacon of smokiness and some fat).
  • 6In a dutch oven, saute the bacon in olive oil over medium heat until crisp.
  • 7Drain on paper towels.
  • 8Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings.
  • 9Working in small batches so the meat browns well, brown the beef cubes in the bacon drippings.
  • 10With a slotted spoon, remove each batch to a bowl.
  • 11Saute the onions and carrots in the drippings until wilted and beginning to brown, about 7 minutes.
  • 12Remove with a slotted spoon to the bowl of meat.
  • 13Heat 3 cups of broth in a saucepan.
  • 14Pour out any drippings that remain in the dutch oven.
  • 15Melt the butter over medium heat in the dutch oven, then stir in the flour.
  • 16Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula to keep the mixture moving.
  • 17When the paste is a dark golden brown, stir in the broth.
  • 18Simmer a minute or two, then stir in the tomato paste, salt, pepper and garlic.
  • 19Add the sauteed vegetables and meat and stir in the reserved wine marinade.
  • 20Quickly bring to a boil.
  • 21Cover and bake in a preheated 325 oven for about 2 hours.
  • 22If the sauce gets too thick, thin it with the extra cup of broth.
  • 23TO SERVE AFTER FREEZING: Thaw according to recommendations.
  • 24Reheat in a covered casserole at 325 for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly.
  • 25You might add freshly cooked vegetables (mushrooms, baby carrots and steamed potatoes).
