Preparation steps

1.
Heat oven to 300º F.
2.
Dry the beef completely with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large ovenproof Dutch oven. Add beef to pot and brown meat on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove meat and set aside.
3.
Add onions to now empty pot and sauté until almost softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add pressed garlic and continue to sauté for 1 minute longer or until garlic is fragrant. Stir in flour and cook until lightly colored, 2 to 3 minutes. Add stock, scraping up any browned bits that may have stuck to the bottom of the pot. Add wine (if using), bay leaf, thyme, paprika, caraway seeds and marjoram; bring to simmer. Add meat; return to simmer. Remove from burner. Cover and place in oven to simmer about 1 hour.
4.
Remove pot from oven, add potatoes and carrots, cover, and return to oven. Simmer until meat is just tender, about 50-60 minutes longer. Remove stew from oven.
5.
Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve.
