This twist on traditional beef stew is a welcome addition to any winter table. The vegetables are first roasted to bring out their full flavor.  Spoon piping hot stew over mashed potatoes flavored with bay leaves.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Makes 6 servings



    • 4 cups cubed winter vegetables (cut into 1/2-inch pieces) such as carrots, butternut squash, parsnips or sweet potatoes

    • 1 medium onion, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1½ pounds beef sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 3/4 cup chicken broth
    • 5 McCormick Bay Leaves, divided use
    • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Thyme Leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Coarse Ground Black Pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup dry red wine
    • 6 servings prepared mashed potatoes


1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Toss chopped vegetables and onion with 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Place on a large baking sheet; roast 20 minutes or until vegetables are golden in color.

2. Sauté beef in 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, 5 minutes or until beef is browned.  Add roasted vegetables, chicken broth, 3 bay leaves, thyme, pepper, salt and wine.  Simmer 5-10 minutes, or until sauce is slightly thickened.

3. Prepare either fresh or instant mashed potatoes as usual, adding 2 bay leaves to the cooking water. Serve stew over mashed potatoes.
