Ingredients

  • 2 pounds New York strip trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt divided
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons light extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 14 ounces beef stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 inch medium turnip peeled and cut into 1cubes
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 cup baby carrots diced
  • 1/2 pound small potatoes quartered
  • 1 rib celery thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • Loaf of crusty bread

Instructions

  1. Dice beef into 2 inch cubes. Pat dry with paper towels. Moist beef will not brown properly. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, 1 teaspoon salt, paprika and black pepper. Mix dry ingredients well and then add cubed beef. Toss well to coat and reserve any remaining flour mix.
  2. Heat light extra virgin olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add beef cubes, reserving the flour-spice mixture. Turn every so often to sear and brown the outsides; basically cauterizing the meat and sealing in the juices. Cook for 4-5 minutes and remove to a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease. Keep the heat on.
  3. Add red wine to the pan to deglaze. Scrape the bottom removing all those little brown bits that will dissolve and add flavor to the completed stew. After deglazing, add beef stock, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer before adding cooked beef cubes. Simmer for 2 hours.
  4. Prep all the colorful veggies while stew simmers. Thirty minutes before serving gently add vegetables and remaining 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt. Bring to a low boil to cook vegetables.
  5. Lastly, ladle out 1/2 cup stew and mix with reserved flour-spice mixture until smooth. Add to stew. This will help to thicken up your stew. If is is still not the correct consistency you can add 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water. Heat for an additional 5-10 minutes. Stew liquid should coat the backside of a wooden spoon, but not be thick like gravy. Vegetables should be fork tender.
  6. Ladle into bowls and serve with slices of a crusty bread to soak up the remaining liquid your spoon couldn't reach. Enjoy!
