Stew. Ange roasted two chickens yesterday with baked spuds and carrots. That was handy, and yesterday was a cold one. But stew would take the cake. Nothing like a hearty hot broth with dumplins and big chunks of potatoe and beef to warm the soul. smile.gif

My Chili:

Recipe Name: SHADOW'S CHILI CON CARNE
Category: BEEF
Serves: 8

SOURCE Shadows

2 Pound beef or venison
1 Pound fresh pork or javelina
6 Clove fresh garlic, chopped fine
2 Tblsp lard or bacon grease
3 bay leaves
1 Quart tomatoes, canned or fresh
1 Large onion, chopped fine or 1 leek, chopped fine
6 Tblsp chilli powder
1 Tblsp flour
1 Tblsp oregano
1 Tblsp salt
1 Tblsp cumin; use more to taste
1 Tsp. black pepper

options:

3 Small dried chilies
or
1 Medium Habenero pepper
beer instead of water

for the beans:

2 Cup pinto or red kidney beans
1/3 Pound salt pork or bacon
1/4 Tsp. oregano

Cut the meat into cubes about 1/2 inch square or use ground meat. Melt the suet or bacon grease in a large pot or pan with a cover. Put the chopped onion and garlic in the pot and brown. Mix the chilli powder and flour with enough cold water to form a thin paste, then mix with the onion and garlic after they are browned. Stir until smooth. Add meats to pan along with 4 tbls water or beer.
Now add the other herbs, spices and tomatoes. Cook slowly for 2 to 4 hours; add liquid as needed to just keep from burning but add as little as possible.
When cooked serve in a bowl over beans prepared as follows:

Pick over the beans** and discard any bad ones. Soak the beans in water over night or quick soak by covering the beans with water and bringing to a boil. Boil 1 minute, cover and let sit for 1 hour. Drain off the water and cover with fresh water. Add 1 tsp. of baking soda. Add salt pork or bacon and oregano. Boil over medium heat for 3 to 4 hours or until tender. Add water as water boils away.
Drain and serve the chilli over the beans.

**I prefer pinto beans in this recipe.

This be the one I use, except I use MacEwen Ale, guess that makes it Scottish.

Recipe Name: IRISH STOUT BEEF STEW
Category: BEEF
Serves: 6

2 pounds Stew meat
3 Tables Flour
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tables Oil
2 cups Onions diced
1 1/2 cups Carrots diced
1 teaspo Garlic minced
1/2 cup Crushed tomatoes
1 cup Irish stout ale
2 cups Beef broth
1/2 teaspo Thyme

The full flavor of dark ale goes well with beef.


Heat the oil in a heavy skillet. Toss the beef, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the beef to the hot oil and brown well. Add the remaining ingredients. Slowly bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the beef and vegetables are tender (about 1 1/2 hours). Serve warm with bread.

I would have to agree with those above.....a steaming stew with oodles of veggies and beef or my home made chicken soup with dumplings. Our favorite is m'potato soup. I put cut up pieces of rich farmers sausage in it. Then after I dish it out I sprinkle grated cheese and green onion on top.....mmmmmmmm!! wink.gif
