Best Ever One Pot Beef Stew is an easy
 
Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds stewing beef
salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, pressed
3 medium carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 cup red wine
2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 cups low sodium beef stock
5 medium white potatoes, quartered
1 cup frozen green beans (optional)
fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place a large Dutch Oven pot over medium-high heat and warm the olive oil in it.

Season the beef with salt and pepper and add to the hot pot, just so the beef covers the bottom of the pot (Don’t overcrowd as this will prevent the browning process. Brown the beef in batches if necessary.).

Brown the beef pieces on each side just until they’re beautifully caramelized, sprinkling the flour over the beef as it browns, about 1 teaspoon at a time.

Remove the beef from the pot to a plate after it has browned (don’t worry about cooking it through at this point!) and add the thyme, smoked paprika, onions, garlic, carrots and celery to the pot.

Stir the vegetables around to catch all the drippings left in the pot from the meat and add the beef back into the pot after the onions are almost translucent.

Add the red wine, the Worcestershire Sauce, and the tomato paste. Give everything a good stir and let the liquid cook down (it’s important to let the wine cook off for a good 4-5 minutes before adding the other liquid).

Once the wine liquid has reduced for several minutes and it has thickened, add the tomato sauce, the beef stock and the potatoes.

Give everything a good stir, scraping any bits off the bottom of the pot.

Make sure the potatoes are nicely nestled into the liquid and add the lid to the pot. Place the pot in the oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 3 to 3 and a half hours.

Every hour or so, lift the lid of the pot and give everything a quick stir.

If you’d like to add the frozen green beans (they’re totally optional and I only add them about 50% of the times I make this dish), stir them in during the last 30 minutes of cooking so they don’t get soggy.

You’ll know the stew is done after the allotted time has passed and the beef pieces fall apart when you touch them with a fork.

Serve in deep bowls with a piece of crusty bread for dipping, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley for garnish (if desired).

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
