I have grown up eating and enjoying a recipe very similar to this one. However, I decided to simplify it and think it’s just as good. Hang on to your taste buds, because they aren’t going to know what hit them with this tasty, hearty meal ~ perfect for the fall and winter months.
There are some recipes that are exact, but then there are those, like this one, that I throw together as I go and taste test. I will give you approximate measurements, but frankly, I don’t know exactly ~ one of my favorite ways of cooking!! Nothing set in stone. All based on taste!
Roasting piece of beef (size depends on how many you are feeding)
Drizzle of Olive Oil
Sweet Yellow Onion
2 garlic cloves
Dried Thyme, to taste
Sea Salt, to taste
Brown beef in a pan drizzled with olive oil on medium heat. Add enough water to cover the entire piece of meat. Add minced garlic and sliced onion. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for hours (I prefer at least 4 hours). You want the meat to be in long enough that it falls apart easily and is tender.
About an hour before serving the dish, cube the red potatoes (I use about 1 or 1 1/2 potatoes per person) and slice the carrots (a handful per person). Add the veggies to the meat pot, unless there is not enough water to also cover the veggies. If that’s the case, I will steam the veggies in a separate pot and add them to the meat pot later.
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Remove about 1 1/2 cups of broth into a separate mixing bowl and thicken with arrowroot powder (making this gluten-free ~ otherwise you could use flour) by whisking it into the broth a little at a time. You may use 1 – 2 tbsps, depending on how thick you want the sauce. Pour the thickening broth back into the pot. The bubbling broth from the pot will thicken the sauce quickly. Stir as this happens to incorporate all of the broth together.
Flavor with sea salt and dried thyme (approximately 1 tbsp), serve, and enjoy!
