Beef Stew


Wow. Delicious. I'm not sure what I did, exactly, but it was the right way to go.

Let's see. I coated the beef in a flour/cornmeal/herb mixture and fried it before putting it into the pot. I used a beer as part of the base. Half the vegetables (onion, celery, carrot) were added chopped to the pot, and half were diced and cooked on the stove for half an hour first, with garlic and in a little bit of butter and vinegar. Sweet potatoes were used in addition to regular potatoes. A touch of red pepper flakes was added to give just a little bite.  I'm sure there's more, but I can't remember it all...

Wow. I could eat this every day.

cornmeal. I've not heard of that before and it's brilliant. Looks wonderful.

Praise indeed! Thanks!

Hmmm - looks awesome, perhaps you could do it again and write the recipe down this time? ;^)

I think, instead of a recipe, this one will have to be a list of suggestions. Soup/stew is always basically what you have lying around thrown into a pot--just do some of the things I did to give it a little extra flair.

That'll work - can't blame a guy for tryin'!
At work we always tell each other that a dish "needs some work, keep tryin' 'til ya get it right..." and we'll let ya know when...
