Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 lbs beef top round, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 3 carrots, peeled, and cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 parsnip, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 8 oz package sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 lb small red potatoes
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

  • In an 8-quart saucepan or pot, over medium-high heat, heat 1 ½ teaspoons of the oil.
  • Add half the beef and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate.
  • Heat another 1 ½ teaspoons oil and brown remaining beef cubes. Add to already browned beef.
  • Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan and stir in the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, parsnip, mushrooms, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables start to soften, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, scrub potatoes with vegetable brush under cold running water. Cut each into eight pieces.
  • Add potatoes, beef and any accumulated juices, broth, wine, and tomato paste to the pot.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until the beef and vegetables are tender, about 1 hour and 35 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper
