The Saturday Simmer: Beef stew recipes
My husband Ted has never met a beef stew he didn't love. Yet, as I searched the interweb for recipes to share with you this week, I realize how limited my beef stew repertoire has been, and how much Ted is missing, like this stifado, otherwise known as Greek beef stew, from Framed Cooks. One thing I love about beef stew is that it's hard to make a bad one; just keep adding ingredients, and cook the meat long enough, and something wonderful is bound to come out of the pot. I'm looking forward to working my way through this week's recipe ideas, and I think Ted is looking forward to it, too.
Many beef stew recipe variations caught my eye this week:
Mediterranean beef stew with rosemary and balsamic vinegar, from Kalyn's Kitchen
Irish beef stew, from Simply Recipes
Stifado, Greek Beef Stew, from Framed Cooks
Cantonese beef stew, from Rasa Malaysia
Dijon and cognac beef stew, from Amateur Gourmet
African beef and peanut stew, from The Kitchn
Roasted poblano beef stew, from My Baking Addiction
Springtime pot-au-feu beef stew, from Chocolate & Zucchini
Winter cranberry beef stew, from Kayotic Kitchen
Seco de carne con tamarindo, or beef tamarind stew, from Laylita's Recipes
Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.
