Use ContourPlot. For example:

  ContourPlot[(x - 1)^2 + (y + 1)^ 2== 3^2, {x, -4, 5}, {y, -5, 4},
     ContourStyle -> Thick, Axes -> True, Frame -> False, AxesLabel -> "x", "y"}]

Notice that with this form of ContourPlot, where the first argument is a function, you do not specify the Contours option.
