The Saturday Simmer: Stew recipes for stovetop or slow cooker

Irish stew, from Recipe Girl.

For those of us who don't measure well, who don't make fancy or fussy food, or who don't like to cook every single day, there is stew. Whether it's vegetable based, or built around meat and potatoes like this gorgeous Irish stew from Recipe Girl, a well-constructed stew never fails to satisfy. It's almost a requirement that when you cook stew, you make a big pot of it, either on the stovetop or in the slow cooker. Most stews taste even better on the second day as the flavors have a chance to meld, so you can prepare a stew today, have some for dinner tonight, enjoy the rest tomorrow, or portion it out for easy worknight dinners after a quick reheat.

Plenty of hearty stew recipes caught my eye this week:

Pork and green chile stew, from The Kitchn

White bean stew with winter squash and kale, from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

Slow cooker root vegetable stew, from Gimme Some Oven

Irish stew, from Recipe Girl

Spiced mushroom, chickpea and tomato stew, from Cookin' Canuck

Cantonese beef stew, from Rasa Malaysia

African chicken peanut stew, from Simply Recipes

Slow cooker Mediterranean beef stew with rosemary and balsamic vinegar, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Karina's roasted Hatch chile stew with sweet potato, corn and lime, from Gluten-free Goddess

Slow cooker lemon-garlic chicken and white bean stew, from The Perfect Pantry

Brazilian shrimp stew, from I Breathe... I'm Hungry

Chicken chickpea stew, from The Shiksa in the Kitchen

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.

Kalyn, same here. The slow cooker is so great for stews of all kinds.
