Ingredients

  • 3

    Tbs (45 ml) butter

  • 1 1/2 - 2

    lbs (675-900 g) beef stew meat

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 1

    Tbs (15 ml) all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2

    cups (375 ml) beef stock

  • 1/4

    cup (60 ml) red wine (optional)

  • 1-3

    cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1

    bay (laurel) leaf

  • 1/2

    tsp (2 ml) dried thyme

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 2

    ribs celery, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    cup (125 ml) walnut halves or pieces

  • 1

    Tbs (15 ml) finely chopped orange zest

Directions

Heat 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of the butter in an ovenproof pot with a lid over moderate heat and brown the beef. Transfer the beef to a plate and saute the onions in the remaining fat until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the meat to the pot along with the beef stock, optional wine, garlic, and seasonings. Cover tightly and bake in a preheated 325F (165C) oven for 2 hours. Shortly before serving heat the remaining tablespoon (15 ml) of butter in a skillet over moderate heat and saute the celery and walnuts for about 3 minutes. Scatter the celery mixture and orange zest over the meat before serving. Serves 4 to 6.
