128-oz. can crushed tomatoes, undrained
2large yellow potatoespeeled and cut into 1” cubes
24oz.mixed frozen vegetablesi.e. peas, corn, green beans, carrots, etc.

Preheat oven to 300°F.
Pat cubed beef dry with paper towels and place in a large bowl. Add flour, pepper and salt; toss until well combined.
Using a Dutch oven, add 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil and place over medium heat. Once hot, add half of beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned on all sides (~5-6 minutes). Transfer browned beef to a plate and repeat with 1 more Tbsp of vegetable oil and the remaining beef. Transfer second batch of browned beef to plate as well.
Add remaining 1 Tbsp of oil to the pot along with the carrots, celery and onions. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until onions have just begun to soften.
Add minced garlic, onion powder, oregano and dill; stir until well combined. Continue sautéing for 1-2 more minutes, stirring often.
Add undrained crushed tomatoes and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes, or until most of the liquid from the tomatoes has evaporated.
Add broth and beef; increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a simmer. Once simmering, cover and place pot in the oven. Cook for 1 hour.
Remove pot from oven; add cubed potatoes and frozen veggies; stir until well combined. Cover and return pot to oven for 1½ more hours.
If stew needs thickening, whisk together cornstarch with 2 Tbsp of water. Stir corn starch mixture into stew.
Divide stew into bowls and garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
Most butchers sell stew meat that is already cut into cubes. However, you can often save a bit of money by purchasing a beef roast and cutting it into cubes yourself.
