Heat oil in a dutch oven (or stock pot). Brown beef on all sides. While it’s browning, combine 3/4 c water, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, thyme, basil, and beef bouillon in a small bowl. Once the beef has browned, pour off any fat. Pour the herb and spice mixture over the meat. Bring to a boil then let simmer, covered, for 1 hour stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cut your carrots, celery, potatoes, and onion if you haven’t already done so. Once the hour is up, add vegetables to the pot and stir. Bring to a boil again then let simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Mix the 1/2 c cold water, flour, and pepper together in a small bowl and set aside. Once the hour is up, remove meat and vegetables to a serving platter and keep warm. Measure out 1 1/2 c of juices from the pot. If you don’t have 1 1/2 cups of meat juice, add enough water to bring it to 1 1/2 cups. Heat juice in pot over medium heat, whisk in the water and flour mixture. Heat until is is boiling and has thickened. Let boil for 1 additional minute. To serve, place meat and vegetables in a bowl (or on a plate), and ladle gravy over the top. Enjoy!
