Directions:
Season beef with salt and pepper. In a stock pot over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once heated, add cubed stew meat. Sear on all sides. If needed, sear meat in two batches - do not overcrowd the pan. Remove beef and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to stock pot. Add diced onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 additional minute. Add tomato paste and stir to coat onions and garlic. Then, add beef broth and worcestershire sauce. Using a whisk, scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze and incorporate into broth.
Add beef back to pot. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 60 minutes (or until beef is tender).
Add cubed potatoes and carrots. Cover and simmer for another 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes and carrots can easily be pierced with a fork.
Uncover and remove from heat. If you'd like a thinner stew, add more beef broth as desired. serve immediately.
