1- In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic, and sauté until the onions are translucent and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

5- After 1 hour of simmering, add the diced potatoes to the pot. Stir to incorporate them into the stew, then cover and continue simmering for an additional 30-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the beef is fork-tender.

6- Once the potatoes are cooked through and the beef is tender, taste the stew and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary.
