Steps

  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.

  • 2
    Pat the beef cubes dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • 3
    Sprinkle with the flour and toss to coat the beef.

  • 4
    Heat the oil in a heavy stockpot over medium-high heat until good and hot. Add the beef cubes, spacing them about an inch apart to ensure proper browning.

  • 5
    Generously brown on all sides, working in batches until all the beef is browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  • 6
    Add the onions to the pot, adding a little more oil if necessary. Cook until soft and translucent, 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

  • 7
    Add the wine and bring to a rapid boil, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  • 8
    Return the beef to the pot along with the beef broth, spices and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

  • 9
    Add the vegetables, return to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for another hour. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • 10
    Serve with crusty bread.
