What You'll Need

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot; brown beef on all sides. 
  2. Add onions, celery, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until beef is fork-tender.

Serving Suggestion

  • Round out the meal by serving this over a heaping helping of either buttered noodles or mashed potatoes. Either way it will ensure you won’t leave any of the flavor-packed sauce behind.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This dish was okay but it was missing something. For us, it was just beef stew with a little different herbs/spices. My husband suggested adding okra and olives (something Mediterranean). He plans to doctor up the leftovers to see what he can make of it. Will I make this again? Probably not, or at least not without a lot of changes.

This dish is delicious!! I added mushrooms and it gave it just a little extra. Served it over caulflower mash yummy

A-MAZE-ING. My whole family loved this. Flavorful. Comfort Food. Delicious. I served it the first night with buttered egg noodles. Second night with homemade mashed potatoes french green beans.

I would like to know what you or anyone would serve with this dish? Mashed potatoes, pasta or rice and what else?

Egg Noodles w/ spiced apple slice. (just open a jar)

German Wave Cake

Donauwellen is a classic German dessert that's often called the "German Wave Cake." That's because the layers in this cake look like the waves of the Danube river. Our version starts off with a box of cake mix, to make it really easy, and features all of the classic flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, cherries, and pudding.
