  1. Coat beef with flour, shaking off excess. In a large nonstick stock pot, heat oil over medium-high heat, add beef and saute until brown, approximately 6 minutes. Remove beef from stock pot and set aside.
  2. Add onions and mushrooms to stock pot and saute for 6 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute, continually stirring.
  3. Skim off fat any fat from the stock pot and return cooked beef to pot; stir in tomato paste and broth. Add enough water to just cover ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until beef is tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  4. Skim off any foam that has accumulated on the surface of stew and add carrots, potatoes and green beans. Cover partially and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water. Stir mixture into stew. Increase heat and boil uncovered for 1 minute. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

I found this recipe to have lots of eye appeal but was disappointed in the lack of flavor. I added salt/pepper as the recipe does not call for any and still found it to be lacking in "robust fla...

This is my favorite recipe for beef stew. It is SO flavorful, and since it cooks so long, the meat is always very tender. I tweaked the recipe some and added some sweet potatoes cut into chunks...

I made a lot of alterations to this recipe, throwing in leftovers I wanted to use up, and substituting things I didn't have and it was delicious!

I really loved this recipe... I made a few changes, taking out the mushrooms and the cornstarch. I added beef sausage, corn, okra and two cans of stewed tomatoes... I loved it even more with the...
