In fact, reading historical biographies, watching documentaries on television, and exploring the Internet reading about history is one of my favorite pasttime activities. Well, that is when I have time to have a ‘pasttime’. I think this love affair for history started my second year at Marshall University. I ‘had’ to take two courses in American history, part 1 (beginning America up to 20th century) then part 2 (20th century). I wasn’t jumping for joy since I considered it quite boring.

  • 1 (14.5 oz) can tomatoes, diced + 1 can water
  • 1 beef shank bone
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 3 tsp. smoked hot paprika
  • 1 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 2 tsp. thyme, dried
  • Your choice. Here’s what I used:
  • 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 cups peppers, mini, sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup baby carrots, whole or larger ones cut in half
  • 1 (10 oz.) box frozen corn
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can Italian cut green beans
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can cannellini beans
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can mixed beans, black, pinto, navy
  • 2 cups collards, chopped & packed


  1. STEW BASE: In a large stock pot or Dutch oven pot over medium heat, put the oil. Add the onions and sauté about 3 minutes.
  2. Increase heat to medium high. Add beef and brown about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic, salt, pepper and flour and blend well. Pour in wine, blend, cover and cook about 3 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add, crushed tomatoes/water, diced tomatoes/water, beef shank, bay leaves, paprika, and thyme. Cover pot and let it cook, at a simmering boil, about 2 ½ hours. Stir occasionally.
  4. Remove beef shank bone and take off any remaining meat and return to pot. Cook another 30 minutes on a simmering boil.
  5. VEGETABLES: Add your veggies that require more cook time first, like potatoes and carrots. Cook about 30 minutes. Then continue to add other veggies and continue cooking until tender.


Please don't be scared off by the number of ingredients. This is reeeeally a super simple recipe! It takes time and great layers of flavoring to create this magnificent 'jeffersonian inspired chunky beef stew' and it's worth every second of your time!
