    Could you substitute french onion soup with beef broth? Also, do you need to pre cook the meat at all?

      Browning the beef for stew is ALWAYS necessary. It’s not optional. It’s so much more flavorful. Beef is SO expensive right now, even the toughest cuts, so make it worth it! It doesn’t really take that long, I just do it while a hungry helper chops veggies for me. Dredge in flour and spices to taste, SEAR (not just brown) preferably in cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. Do this in small batches. After you have seared and removed all the beef cubes on both sides, scrape the pan to loosen beef bits and pour in your liquids and stir well to get all the beef juices and flavors mixed in. Then use it to follow the rest of your recipe.

      You will get a stew so much superior you’ll never skip browning again. Trust me, I used to, and now I just think of all that sub-par stew I wasted beef on.
