How to make Beef stew

  2. Take a heavy bottomed pan, pour in required oil then put in the seasoned beef once the oil is hot.
  3. Saute and cook the meat for 7-8 minutes till it is half cooked and slightly brown in colour.
  4. After this time period, move the beef to a plate. Remove excess oil with the help of paper towels.
  5. Preheat the oven to 162 degree celsius.
  6. Take a pot and heat in on medium flame, melt the butter in it. Then put in the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes till it is light brown in colour.
  7. Next, put in the garlic and cook for another minute till the fragrance fills the room. Put in the beef and sprinkle flour into the pan, stir and cook till it is lightly toasted.
  8. Pour in the chicken broth along with salt to taste, let it simmer and bring to a boil.
