Taking the time to learn a few easy prep tricks along with some unique ingredients will make this the best beef stew you've ever made.
- Neutral oil - Beef chuck roast - black pepper - Kosher salt - Mushrooms - Sweet onion - Carrots - Garlic - Dry red wine
Trim any large pieces of fat and cut the beef chuck roast into two inch pieces. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
Don’t stop there. Fry the mushrooms in the same pan. Mushrooms are a sponge. Frying them will crisp them up and draw out some of the moisture.
You’ve already got the fry pan out and hot, go ahead and sauté the carrots and onions for about five minutes. Doing so will enhance the sweetness and texture in both vegetables.
