Stew

A bowl of hot beef stew on a cold night is one of life's greatest pleasures. Stew is a loose term that generally refers to chunks of meat and vegetables cooked in a thickened stock. When looking for a stew recipe, search for one that's relatively simple. Whether you're making Brunswick stew or oyster stew, you want to keep everything rustic - large chunks made for good hearty bites. Unless you've got hours to spend at the stove, buy decent stew meat - the cheaper cuts take forever to become tender. And don't forget the bread! Weather it's soda bread paired with Irish stew or a hearty slice of baguette served alongside fragrant lamb stew, the two belong together.
