Easiest Recipe to Make Beef Stew at Home

People do not prefer cooking at home to avoid the complexity of different cooking process. Further, some people tend to use cookbooks to get new ideas to making the preparations simple. In this article, I have assembled an extremely simple recipe for making a great beef stew at home. Though the recipe is for a vegetable and beef, you can change the vegetable and add other ingredients after your taste.
2 ½ pounds beef chuck cut into 1 inch cubes, 
1 large chopped onion, 
6 peeled carrots cut into 1 ½ inch julienne, 
8 slices of bacon, 
2 peeled turnips cut into pieces, 
Well rinsed leeks 3 pieces, chopped, 
2 ½ cups of homemade beef stock 
2 ½ cups of red wine (preferable Burgundy, but drinkable) 
2 tablespoons of tomato paste 
2 tablespoons of red currant jelly 
2 teaspoons of sugar 
2 tablespoons of butter 
8 ounces of sliced mushrooms, 
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped 
6-8 red potatoes 
6 minced garlic cloves, 
Salt & pepper after needs.

A couple of preparatory tasks needed before you start cooking the stew. You may kick the cooking off with cutting the beef chuck into cubes. Or let the process begin with chopping an onion. Wash the leeks properly before you chop them. Peel the carrots and cut them into 1 ½ inch julienne. Then make pieces of the turnips after peeling them. Slice the mushrooms and quarter the potatoes. Next chop the rosemary and parsley. Finish the tasks by garlic mincing.
