Oven beef stew recipe, the best comfort food for the cold weather ahead. Heart-warming, healthy, nutritious, this stew is one of those family favourite recipes you can never go wrong with.
Heat up the oil in a pan and brown the beef on both sides for about 5 minutes.
Peel and cut the vegetables in big chunks, then add them to the pan together with the beef stock (broth), peppercorns, bay leaves, thyme and rosemary.
Stir for 2 minutes, then transfer everything to an oven-proof dish.
Cover and cook in the oven for an hour and a half at 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit) until the meat is tender. Different ovens bring different results, so you can cook it for a bit longer if the meat is not tender enough.
Season with salt to taste and garnish with freshly-chopped parsley. Serve hot!
