Recipe type: Dinner
This traditional beef dinner is simmered to perfection and will please even the pickiest eater in your family! Red wine, flavorful mushrooms, and fresh herbs elevate this basic dish to an impressive campsite meal.
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 pounds cubed stew beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound mushrooms, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth or stock
  • 1 cup red wine (or more broth)
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Hot cooked egg noodles or rice, for serving
  1. Season beef cubes with salt and black pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the beef and onions. Let the meat brown on one side, then turn over and cook until all sides have browned. Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently and scraping up any cooked-on bits on the bottom of the pan. If needed, add a little more oil to the pan to keep the onions from sticking and burning. Next, add the garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds until fragrant.
  2. Add the mushrooms, beef broth, red wine, and thyme sprigs. Bring everything to a bubble, then reduce to medium-low heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve over hot buttered egg noodles and garnish with extra fresh thyme.
