It's cozy and comforting for your soul by way of your stomach. My dad made scrumptious vegetable and beef soup. This hearty beef stew is a nod to his creation but kicks it up several tasty notches with a healthy dose of Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Shiraz red blend. This savory pot pairs tender nuggets of beef, fresh veggies, a blend of herbs, and a Cabernet/Shiraz blend! Winter's not going away yet so there's still time to enjoy a steaming bowl of stew.

On a chilly fall or winter evening, beef stew is a wonderful dinner. Add a fresh salad and some warm, crusty bread to complete the meal. After simmering, the beef is super tender. Wine cabernet wine adds a rich depth of flavor. Each layer of vegetables adds a different taste to the beef stew. This is a delicious bowl of stew. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Hearty Herb and Cabernet Beef Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. Season beef well with salt and pepper. Dust with flour. Shake off access.
  2. In small batches, sear on all sides until browned. Remove to a plate as they are finished.
  3. Toss carrots, onions, and celery into the pot. Stir frequently for about 10 minutes, until they are starting to color and are crisp tender but not completely done. Remove to another plate.
  4. Pour in the wine and add the beef back to the pot. Simmer on medium and allow the wine to reduce a bit, for about 10 minutes.
  5. Add beef broth and simmer over low heat for about 1 hour to help meat become tender.
  6. Add tomatoes, basil, oregano, and potatoes to the pot.
  7. Plus add your reserved veggies. Cook for about another hour until meat is fork-tender and vegetables are done. Stir in corn and fresh thyme and cook for about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
