      About the Recipe


      This Beef Carrot Potato Stew is a hearty and comforting dish and it is perfect for a romantic dinner. Imagine a fresh piece of baguette or bread that you can dig into a bowl with a stew. Pure deliciousness!

      Stews are generally considered a pure comforting food for colder weather evenings. If you are looking for a warm and filling meal to help to stay cozy and nourished, you are at the right place.

      This Beef Carrot Potato Stew has a rich taste and the meat is succulent.

      This stew recipe is also a great meal option during the holiday season when your family and friends gather together to celebrate and share meals. You can make it in a large pot and leave it in the fridge for 2-3 days, so none is going to be hungry.

      The only thing to keep in mind is the number of servings. Use the calculator in the ingredients section, to increase or decrease the size of your ingredients. And this meal is definitely crowd-pleasing that can be easily customized to suit different tastes and preferences.

      If you are craving a lighter vegetable-based stew, you can add zucchini, eggplant, cauliflower, or even mushrooms to the pot. I like to use porcini mushrooms, they always give so much earthy flavor.

      How To Choose Beef?

      Chuck roast is a common choice for stews because it’s well-marbled and has a lot of connective tissue that breaks down during the cooking process, making the meat tender and flavorful.

      As an alternative, you can look for pre-cut beef stew meat. They are not very expensive usually, because they contain meat from different parts of the cow.

      Also, the bottom round is a good option, too. This type of meat is dryer and has less fat than chuck roast. If you want to reduce fat in your stew, you can use the bottom round, just cook slowly and on low flame, so the meat will tenderize.

      What Are The Challenges to Cook This Stew?

      Cooking this meal is a simple process, but there are a few things to keep in mind:

      • If you have a tough piece of meat – just cook the meat on the stove slowly to help break down the fibers and tenderize the meat.
      • Overcooking the potatoes and carrots – the potatoes and carrots can become mushy if overcooked, which can affect the texture of the stew. Be sure to check the vegetables on a slow flame.
      • Check the consistency – getting the consistency of the stew right can be a challenge. If it’s too thick, you can add more water to thin it out. If it’s too thin, you can let it simmer for a bit longer to reduce the liquid.

      This recipe will help you can create a delicious and comforting beef carrot potato stew that you absolutely love it!

      What Kind Of Wine To Serve With Beef Carrot Potato Stew?

      If you are in the mood for a glass of wine, consider serving red full-body wine, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Syrah. Such wines have a great balance of acidity and flavor and accompany perfectly the rich meat and vegetables.

      Which Dessert To Serve After Beef Carrot Potato Stew?

      This stew is very filling and you will probably need a little break after such a dinner. But after, you can enjoy decadent chocolate or fruit desserts.

      The best desserts to serve are a double chocolate brownie or an apple pie. You can get acidity from apples if you crave those, or sweetness from chocolate.
