Recipes that qualify as stews. Typically cooked in a pot or slow-cooker.
A classic dish, made from scratch. It is really easy to make, just takes a little planning ahead.
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. Source: Chow.com
