    how do you make your beef stew?

    Ingredients?

    Cook time?

    Share your secrets!

    I’m at the waiting part, I think I’m a couple hours out

    Stout stew!!! Simply add a can of your fave to the mix while slow cooking.

    No recipe, it's a free for all ..... ..beef......stew stuff (carrots, onions, potatos, whatever), the stout suggestion above sounds great, seasonings to taste.....stew 'til done. And if ya do it right, there's always leftovers for a day (or more :) )

    I look through the fridge and pantry to see what I can find and do whatever seems like a good idea

    Here it’s called Cawl (welsh for broth, pronounced cow’l)

    Keep it simple.

    Chop potato’s, carrots, swede, leek and bring to the boil in a large pan. I like to add an oxo cube to make the stock a bit richer. Pinch of salt. Pinch of black pepper.

    Seal beef (or lamb) in a hot pan with diced onion garlic and generous dollop of mustard (Coleman’s English mustard is preferred)

    Add to the veg.

    Sometimes I add various spices for the sake of variety but it’s not necessary.

    Brown cubed beef chuck stew meat in dutch oven. Deglaze with a 1/4 can of Guinness Stout. Add rough chopped large onion, baby carrots, cubed potatoes, rest of the can of Guinness, bay leaf, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on low for at least four hours.

    My wife's recipe is tomato-based. It's nothing like Mom's and it gives me heartburn, but I'm not saying a word. It's good enough.

    Hmmm...... a couple strewed tomatoes in my regular stew might be interesting

    It's unseasonably warm here today, but I have some chili in the slow cooker right now with about 4 hours left to go. For stew I like to get a little bougy and make it French style, Beef Bourguignon. Let it reduce all day in a sauce made from some inexpensive red wine... Yum!

    Green chiles. Everything else is negotiable.

    I make a beef curry. I'm sure I'll be reincarnated as a dung beetle for doing so, but it's tasty in this lifetime.

    Old school simplicity for me, please.

    Beef, carrots, taters, onion, celery.

    Not stew (although that really sounds good) but my supper tonight is a BBQ sandwich. Members around here may know about Heim BBQ.....relatively new in Ft Worth, but has a great reputation already. My nephew visited my mom today, and took some to her....brought me a sandwich and slaw and potato salad. Never had Heim before, and I'm looking forward to it! ;)

    Ha, I’m not sure my pot of brown beefy water is picture worthy

    Here's a progress photo of today's chili build I mentioned earlier:
    IMG_0001.JPG
    It's reducing very nicely and the flavors are starting to come together... I have a couple bread bowls I'll be serving this up in and a buddy bringing the beer later to go with it. :D:cool:
    The whole house smells of it though and I haven't had anything to eat yet today, so the anticipation's killing me. :mad:
