Now that it’s getting cold outside, I’m starting to crave recipes that are cozy, warm, and soothing for the soul. The recipes that are pure comfort. 

This Braised Beef recipe with mushrooms is just that. And you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when you take the first bite. 

What All Goes Into Braised Beef With Mushrooms

It starts with 2 pounds of beef. You can use any cut but I prefer chuck. You’ll cut it into bite-sized pieces and lightly fry in olive oil for 3-4 minutes.

Veggies. Onions, carrots, and garlic come together in the skillet and are then sprinkled over the beef.

Potatoes. Cut like french fries. You’ll fry them and also add to the beef and veggies.

Dill. Or parsley. For a refreshing taste.

Mushrooms. These will also be fried for 2-3 minutes before incorporating with the rest of the ingredients.

Broth. Or water if you’d like to substitute. You need liquid so everything simmers and cooks to perfection. The broth is my choice because it adds an additional depth of flavor.

Grated cheese and mayo. This is your last layer. This makes everything creamy.

Everything is then baked. And once this dish sits in the oven for a few minutes, the aroma will hit your nose so pleasantly. 

Important tip: You’ll notice that everything is cooked/fried separately before adding it into the dish. This is to ensure that each ingredient brings its own unique flavor. Simmering or frying all the ingredients all at once will result in one flavor.
