Easy Beef Stew Recipe
Since beef stew is such a quick and simple dish, it is hard to imagine any recipe for this dish that would not be an easy beef stew recipe. This particular configuration for an easy beef stew recipe includes some terrific tips to make sure that your stew is fabulous. As a kid growing up, stew was one of our favorite dishes, but I am not sure that we always ate the best stew around. For example, we often had to chew and chew and chew (honestly) in order to swallow the meat we often had in our stews. But we still loved it, and the classic addition of potatoes and carrots as well as huge chunks of onions was also loved. And those ingredients are also to be found in this stew recipe. So enjoy it when you make it. Your kids are going to love it, guaranteed.
Make sure you cut the meat at least twice as large as you think is the right size for your easy beef stew recipe. This is because meats today are often full of water, and when they cook, they shrink enormously. This is less a concern if you purchase your meat from a local and independent farmer or buy organic beef that is 100 per cent grass-fed. Highly commercial beef can have this issue, so be careful about what you buy. You may pay twice as much for local beef; however, the end product is so superior that you really will be amazed. Most people who get the chance to eat that kind of meat rarely return to the grocery store to buy their meat, and many continue forward to purchase their chicken, lamb, and other meats the same way. There is really no comparison in the flavor or texture.
For a cook with experience, this easy beef stew recipe will truly be a simple one to follow. Of course, the site has plenty of help in terms of great photos of the stew at various stages as well as easy to follow, step by step instructions. These things will make the entire process much easier and help to guarantee great success with the outcome. If you could get some help in terms of chopping up the potatoes and carrots as well as the other vegetables, then you can focus on preparing the meat. It is important to properly dry off the meat ( to ensure good browning) and to properly braise it for further stewing. So if you do not have to worry about also getting the vegetables in order (mise en place, again) then you can be assured that this will indeed be an easy beef stew recipe.
