This deeply flavorful dish is as much a comfort food as it is a luscious meal to serve to guests. The stew may be made a day or two in advance and reheated, and it freezes well. The polenta is best made just before serving.
2 pounds boneless chuck, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 red onions, chopped into ¾-inch pieces
4 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 ribs celery, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
12 garlic cloves
8 ounces white mushrooms, halved
2 cups reduced sodium beef broth
1 1/2 cups red wine
6 fresh parsley sprigs
5 fresh thyme sprigs
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the polenta:
3 cups whole milk
1 cup water
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup instant polenta
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Beef Stew with Red Wine over Polenta Recipe at
For the stew, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick pot over medium-high heat. Add half the beef and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer the browned beef to a plate and repeat with 1 tablespoon of the oil and the remaining beef.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and add the onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are somewhat softened, about 10 minutes.

Add the beef (and the juices from the plate), broth, wine, parsley, thyme, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the beef is tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir in the salt and pepper.

Start the polenta ten minutes before the stew finishes cooking. Combine the milk, water, salt, and pepper in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer; slowly whisk in polenta. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until polenta is thick and creamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese until well combined. Serve stew over polenta.
