8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup beef stew and 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley)

The tomatoes cook so long in the liquid that they soften to the point of falling apart, adding flavor and body to the braise. The long cooking time also makes the beef very tender.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Add sliced onion; cook for 7 minutes or until onion is softened, stirring occasionally. Add minced garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in flour; cook 2 minutes, stirring often.

Step 2

Stir in water and next 9 ingredients (through bay leaf). Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 1 hour. Uncover and simmer 30 minutes or until beef is tender. Discard bay leaf. Sprinkle each serving with parsley.
