I like it when fruits are incorporated in a dish. It sweetens the sauce naturally and it gives any dish a nice twist. Here’s a yummy, “orangy” beef stew I’m sure your family will love.

Beef Stew with White Wine and Orange


  • 3 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 extra-large onion, diced
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced (1-inch-thick)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme or 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 3 pounds beef stew meat, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup white wine (or beef stock)
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large orange, peeled and sliced
  • peel of half an orange (remove as much white pith as possible), julienned


  1. In a large dutch oven, saute onion, carrots, red and green bell pepper, celery, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme in oil over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until onions just turn translucent. Remove vegetables and set aside.
  2. In a plastic bag, place flour, salt and pepper along with the meat. Shake until all meat pieces are well-coated. Using the same dutch oven and with the remaining oil from the vegetables, place the coated beef cubes and cook until all pieces are browned.
  3. When meat is nicely browned, place them on one side and deglaze the pan with the white wine, then add in the orange juice, vegetables, tomatoes, and sliced orange peel.
  4. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for three hours. Remove bay leaves, thyme sprigs (if using fresh), and orange peel. Adjust seasonings before serving.
  5. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with sliced oranges.
  6. Serve hot with bread, mashed potatoes or steamed rice.
