Easy Beef Stew

Easy Beef Stew

Many stew recipes call for cooking the meat and vegetables at the same time, leaving the latter overcooked and mushy. Instead, first braise the meat with onions in red wine and beef broth until a rich sauce develops. Then, after about an hour, add carrots, celery, and potatoes. By the time the vegetables are cooked, the beef will be tender, then just stir in some peas for a little freshness and color. Spoon the stew over egg noodles or celery root purée, or just pass around plenty of crusty bread to scoop up all the rich sauce. Total Time: 2 hrs 45 mins. Makes: 4 to 6 servings.

Steaks & Roasts

Grass Fed Corned Beef Brisket

Corned Beef Brisket

Making your own Corned Beef is a wonderful way to prepare a Brisket without all the added chemicals. It is fairly easy, but does take forethought because of the brining time, but worth it. A couple of things to note: this corned beef will most likely be less salty than a commercially prepared version. It will also be darker in color as it does not have the added chemical (Salt Peter -potassium nitrate or Sodium Nitrite) which would keep the meat, "pink". You will sometimes see," Pink curing salt", listed in some recipes.

Marinades & Sauces

Main Ingredients:

  • 1 part rice wine vinegar
