  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 pounds cubed beef stew meat

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 3 cups merlot wine

  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules

  • 1 quart milk

  • 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 6 carrots, diced

  • 6 stalks celery, diced

  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano

  • 3 tablespoons dried basil

  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander

  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon salt


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over high heat; saute beef until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add onion. Continue to saute until onion is softened and browned around the edges, about 5 minutes more. Transfer beef mixture to a bowl.

  2. Pour wine into the same pot used to cook beef and bring wine to a boil. Boil until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. Stir beef bouillon into wine and cook until dissolved, about 5 minutes. Return beef to the pot and add milk, potatoes, carrots, and celery. Season with oregano, basil, coriander, pepper, cumin, and salt and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and continue to simmer until beef is tender, about 1 hour.
