The next Recession Swap Question is:
“What is your favorite Cool Weather Recipe?”
I think my favorite is beef stew:
First, heat oil in cast iron pan,
then brown Stew beef, cut into small chunks.
Put the meat aside for a little bit.
Next, add a little more oil, heat it, then add
Onion: one is usually enough, cut up.
Garlic: cloves minced up, however many you like.
Spices: salt, pepper, bay leaf, basil, cloves, peppercorns.
Cook this until the onion is translucent.
Browned stew beef,
Some tomatoes, tomato paste, or tomato sauce,
Cook this for awhile and then add:
couple of cut up potatoes,
lots of cut up mushrooms,
whatever other vegetables you’d like to add.
You can adjust the thickness with
more/less broth, and/or
barley or some other thing that can cook in the broth.
