All-American Beef Stew Recipe | Serious Eats

I must try this *drool*

You know that scene in the movie where the nerdy hero or heroine finds inner confidence and suddenly becomes much more interesting and much more attractive to the rest of the world? That hero is beef stew and its time for confidence is now. The beef stew of my dreams starts with large tender, juicy chunks of beef coated in a sauce that is rich and intense but not heavy or muddy (and that sauce had better be clean and glistening). It has vegetables that are more than just filler, but bring a complementary texture and flavor to the party. After dozens of pounds of stewed beef and scores of experiments, we’ve got the recipe.
