  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Pat beef dry and season with S&P and garlic powder. In a large pot heat olive oil to medium-high heat. Brown meat on each side. Try to just sear the meat. Transfer meat to a large plate and set aside
  3. Add onions, garlic, and balsamic vinegar to pan and sautee for about 5-7 mins. Add tomato paste and cook for 3 more mins. Add beef with juices back to the pan and sprinkle in the flour. Whisk until flour is dissolved. Add wine, broth, water, bay leaves, thyme sprigs, and brown sugar. Stir and bring to a boil. Cover pot with a lid and transfer to oven for 90 mins.
  4. Remove pot from oven and add carrots and potatoes. Cover and place back in the oven for 90 more mins. Remove from the oven and let cool just a little to see if you’d want to make it a little thicker with some more flour. Enjoy!
