Fall Stew

This stew has everything in it so you need very little in the way of side dishes.

1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 bay leaves
1 (29 ounce) can whole tomatoes
½ cup red wine
¼ cup soy sauce
6 large parsnips, chopped
2 leeks, sliced
4 carrots, chopped
2 turnips, chopped
2 (8 ounce) packages sliced mushrooms
4 potatoes, chopped

In a large Dutch oven, sauté onion, garlic and beef in the olive oil until browned. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for at least 2 hours – the longer the better.
