Our next meal features a hearty oven-baked beef stew with shiitake mushrooms that you can assemble ahead of time. It takes about 40 minutes for the casserole to bake, giving you plenty of time to steam some baby carrots and mash some potatoes.
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 pound frozen pearl onions
- 1 pound boneless New York steak, cut 3/4-inch thick, trimmed of fat, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
- Salt (optional)
- Freshly ground pepper
- 3/4 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms, caps cleaned, stems discarded, and caps thinly sliced
- 2 large cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 14 1/2-ounce diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 1/2 cups canned low-sodium beef broth
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Warmth the oil in a huge nonstick skillet over medium-high warmth. Add the onions and cook until soft and browned, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the onions to a shallow 3-quart casserole.
- Add the cubes of steak to the skillet and cook, stirring, until meat is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add the steak to the casserole. Season with salt (if utilizing) and pepper to taste. Top with the mushrooms, garlic, tomatoes, broth, and thyme. Bury the bay leaf. Bake the casserole, covered, for 40 to 45 minutes.
- Discard the bay leaf and serve.
