The stew that was

I save my big Cooks for the weekends. Ideally, this gives me a meal or two during the weekend, plus baon for a day or two during the work week. This usually works out because Matt, while he often says he'll eat what I'm making, usually doesn't touch the food I make until roughly Day 3.

Yesteday, I made a beef stew. The ingredients were as follows:

water (approx 3L? I don't measure that sort of thing)
approx. 350g of pot roast, cut into small chunks
6 white potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
approx. 5 stalks of celery, cleaned, ends trimmed
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and cubed
1 Vidalia onion, chopped
1 head garlic, chopped
sea salt
ground pepper

Apparently, Matt and I were quite hungry (it didn't hurt that it was the only readily-available meal in the apartment), since it was completely polished off by 9pm. So much for pictures or baon, but I take it as a testament to its irresistibility.

Did I mention I'm stoked that you've taken to posting some of your recipes? :)

I think there's a good possibility I'm going to try your stew this weekend, looking at your ingredient list I think I have everything in the house to give it a go.

Quick question, did you have it with rice or some kind of bread? I like stew with rice but it's hard trying to get Kevin to eat it.

No one. :(

No one talks to me about stew. :(

Wow, Michelle, this response is about 3-1/2 years late, but "better late than never," right? Oops. Sorry!

I don't usually serve my stews with starch, as I find the potatoes add all the starch I need, but eating just about anything with rice is common in Filipino culture, so I'm not averse to the idea. Also, I know that a lot of people love eating their stew with a nice, crusty loaf of bread. Tell Kev to "man up" and try something different. Then call him, "Nancy". :)
