- Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or large soup pot over medium heat. Cook bacon in hot oil until crispy and the fat is rendered, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels.
- Season beef with salt and pepper. Cook and stir about half the beef in the reserved drippings until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes; remove browned beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Cook and stir remaining beef in the pot until completely browned, another 5 to 7 minutes; remove browned beef to the bowl.
- Let the drippings retained in the pot get hot before stirring onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves into the drippings; cook and stir until the vegetables are hot, 3 to 4 minutes. Add potatoes and garlic; continue cooking and stirring until the vegetables are tender, 3 to 4 minutes more. Stir Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste through the vegetable mixture; cook until the paste begins to blend into the mixture, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Pour the bowl with the browned beef and its juices into the pot; stir to mix with the vegetables. Add beef stock, mushroom soup, and sour cream to the beef mixture; season with rosemary, paprika, and thyme. Stir the mixture to combine.
- Bring the stew to a boil, cover the pot with a lid, and reduce heat to medium-low; cook the stew at a simmer for 90 minutes. Stir the peas into the stew and continue cooking until the beef is tender, about 30 minutes more. Remove and discard bay leaves. Garnish with the bacon to serve.

Tasted great, I just have a hard time giving 5 stars to a recipe with canned soup.
This was well received. We served it over wide egg noodles and it made a hearty, nutritious meal. The sour cream really gave plain old stew a nice twist. Thanks for sharing, Kelly.
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with a roast and I came across this recipe. I am not a fan of thyme so I left it out and added an extra tablespoon of tomato paste only because mine wasn't as r...
It was absolutely fabulous! I didn't have bacon on hand, so I cooked the beef in a stick of butter instead. I also seasoned the beef with Montreal steak seasoning instead of salt and pepper. A...
