Ingredients

  • 7 to 8 tablespoons EVOO
  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds stew beef, at room temperature
  • Salt
  • 1 quart beef stock
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 2 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick or cut into wedges
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons rosemary, finely chopped

Directions

Drizzle the beef with 4 to 5 tablespoons of the EVOO and season with a little salt. Place the beef in large Dutch oven with the stock and enough water to just cover. Add the onion, bay leaves and 2 cloves of the garlic. Bring to a low boil and simmer, partially covered, for 2 hours. Stir together the tomato paste and 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid, then add to the pot. Add the pepper and wine and cover. Cook on the stovetop at a gentle simmer until very tender and falling apart, 2 1/2 to 3 hours (alternatively, transfer to the oven and roast at 325 degrees F). Cool and store. Reheat over medium heat or in a moderate oven.

To serve, while the beef is reheating, boil the potatoes until tender and drain. Add the remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil to a pot over medium heat. Add the remaining clove garlic, stir for minute, then remove the garlic. Add the potatoes and crisp a bit. Season with salt, pepper and the rosemary.
