a bowl of beef stew at the dinner table with candles and roses

Plated on our Artisan Angled Bowl in Agave White & Artisan Plate in Geode Azure Teal


  • 2 lbs chuck roast or beef stew meat
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups onion diced
  • 2 cups red potatoes cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 cups carrots thick slices
  • 1 cup mushrooms quartered
  • 5 tablespoons tapioca
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 6 oz tomato paste


  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • If using a chuck roast, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle spices (salt, pepper, coriander, cloves) and minced garlic over the meat and toss to coat evenly. Place beef into the bottom of a 6-quart Dutch oven.

Place remaining ingredients into the Dutch oven in the order listed. DO NOT stir.

  • Add diced onions on top of the beef stew meat. Cut red potatoes into 1-inch cubes (no need to peel) and place on top of the onions, followed by sliced carrots, and quartered mushrooms.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together tomato paste, beef broth, and red wine. Pour over the vegetables. Sprinkle with 5 tablespoons of tapioca. DO NOT STIR.
  • Cover and bake at 275 degrees for 5 hours. Remove from oven, stir (finally!) and serve with crusty bread.
  • If the broth is not as thick as you like, make a slurry of a couple tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 cup water and stir into the hot broth.

From Sheila: "This cookware is attractive enough to bring right to the dinner table for serving. Its professional grade fine-grain polished stainless steel surface is also easy to cook with and easy to clean! That’s less stress right there! ... It also has a gently sloping rim that allows for perfect drip-free pouring. This cookware,  as well as the ceramic dinnerware, goes into the dishwasher for easy cleaning when you’re done entertaining!"
