Beef Stew is easy to make with tender fall apart beef and hearty vegetables. It is super flavorful, rich, and PERFECT for cold days.
Add a heavy-duty, oven safe large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the beef a few pieces at a time into one layer, making sure to not overcrowd the pieces. Brown, turning the pieces on all sides, for about 5 minutes per batch. Remove from pot and transfer to a plate, cover with foil. Add another 2 tablespoons of oil to the pot and cook another batch of beef.
