I was shocked the first time I made this. Dinner time was drawing near, I opened the fridge and all I could see was stew meat that I needed to cook in the next few days. Not one bone in my body wanted to go to the grocery store. Then I remembered my mom had just taught me a nifty way to cook stew meat and it only takes two hours. Now all I needed was a flavor combo and lately, mustard and rosemary have been my go-to. When I pulled my Le Creuset out of the oven the smell was heavenly. Chris came home and thought I had made dinner for a special occasion. We will definitely be making this for Valentine’s dinner. Channel your inner Julia Child and cook along with me!

Dijon Braised Beef

5 ingredients, 2 hours that's all you need to have for this recipe that is bursting with flavor. This combination is utterly perfect. The mustard gives the beef a deep flavor that is so elegant you will feel like you just ate at a fancy restraunt. I have enjoyed this dish with potatoes and carrots, brocoliini, and even with a classic risotto.

Servings 4


  • dutch oven


  • 2 lbs stew meat ask your butcher for chuck stew meat
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup beef bone broth
  • 2 sprigs rosemary


  • You'll need to use your bottom rack for this, so make sure it has been placed as low as possible. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F, if you have the option DO NOT use convection (this will dry out your meat). Unwrap your stew meat, spread out, and sprinkle the kosher salt evenly over the meat. Let sit for about 20 min. You will see the salt melt, turn into liquid, and eventually, the liquid will return back into the meat. This will ensure that the salt has traveled down into your meat truly salting each piece.
