I’ve added a new recipe for Stew. It’s a compendium of several recipes that selects the ingredient that suit my taste.
I’ve recently been on a stew binge; they are easy to make; they use up a lot of stuff that may otherwise go bad; they go well with cold weather. The only issue is they take a while to cook, up to 10 hours in a slow cooker. I start mine in the morning.
Last evening, I made the stew using lamb. A nice change from beef. It went well with a Canadian [Pelee Island] Pinot Noir.
What I like about the recipe is that it’s really just a list of ingredients; quantities are determine by what you have and what your tastebuds cry for. Colour is another input; the carrots and peas are good for that. Arguably the list of ingredients is just a recommendation as well.
