what I had for dinner: beef stew on a rainy day!

25 May

In honor of the rain outside today…..

I made beef stew!

Every time I make stew it’s a little bit different. I tend to throw whatever veggies I have in the frig into the pot. This is a great way to use up “stuff” that looks to be on its way to turning bad.

yum, yum

stew

This seriously took less than a half hour to throw together. And then about an hour until it is ready to eat. I always kinda dread making soup because it seems like such a hard thing to do! And after I’m done throwing everything in the pot I always REremember how easy stew is!

Recipe:
1 lb. stew meat (I brown it in a skillet with coconut oil)
2 boxes of beef broth (I use Imagine’s Organic Beef Flavored Broth)
2 potatoes
2-3 carrots
2-3 cups green beans
2 cups cauliflower
1 cup green onion
1 cup leek (this was a new addition, I liked!)
salt, pepper
fresh thyme (I put a lot!)
fresh rosemary
3 cloves garlic
splash of wine (if you have it)
splash of Worcestershire sauce

Pretty much the basic idea is: throw in some meat, veggies and seasoning, and you’re pretty much guaranteed a good meal!

Dessert was…..
