Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon


  • 1 lb beef stew meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 Tbsp gluten free flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can (14-½ oz) fired roasted, diced tomatoes, undrained
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 32 oz beef stock or broth
  • 1 medium Yukon Gold potato, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • ½ tsp thyme 
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup frozen vegetable blend (green beans, corn, peas)


  • In a bowl toss beef with flour, salt and pepper until thoroughly coated. Heat olive oil in a Dutch Oven over medium-high heat until hot. Add stew meat;  brown evenly on all sides, cook in batches if needed. 
  • Add tomatoes, red wine and beef stock to the pan, scraping the bottom to remove brown bits.  
  • Add potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, oregano, parsley, bay leaf, salt and pepper. 
  • Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 2 hours or until beef and vegetables are tender. The last 30 minutes of cooking time add the frozen vegetable blend and salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Remove bay leaf and serve.


Tiffy’s Tips:
~For stew meat, I like to use sirloin, chuck roast or short rib.
~For a more intense flavor substitute Guinness beer or stout for the red wine.
~The secret is in the simmer. Low heat, slow cooking for less tender cuts of beef is a must.
~Serve with cornbread… yum!!
~Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5 days. This recipe freezes well.
~I made this gluten free by using Cup 4 Cup Gluten Free Flour which is excellent!
