Hearty Beef Stew with Red Wine Scotto Family
1. Season beef with salt and pepper, then toss with flour in medium bowl, shake off excess.
2. Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium to high heat. Add the garlic, onions and mushrooms; sauté for about 1 minute, then discard garlic. Add butter to same pot and let melt. Working in batches, add beef to pot and sauté until brown, about 6 minutes per batch.
3. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to bowl. Add wine, beef broth and oregano to pot, scraping up any browned bits. Return beef and any accumulated juices to pot; bring to low simmer, cover and cook for 45 minutes. Add carrots and potatoes to stew; cover and simmer for an additional 30 to 45 minutes or until beef is fork-tender. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
