"I love a good stew in the winter and often have the makings for a great one on hand: red wine, carrots, onions, garlic, celery, and canned tomatoes." --Kate Kunstel, Bronx, New York

How to Make It

Sprinkle flour, salt, and pepper over beef. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef mixture to pan; cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove beef from pan with a slotted spoon; keep warm. Add onion and celery to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add beef, wine, and the next 5 ingredients (through bay leaf) to pan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 45 minutes or until beef is just tender. Add carrot to pan; cover and cook for 30 minutes. Discard the rosemary and oregano sprigs and bay leaf.
