A excellent beef stew starts out with terrific meat. Needless to say, there are lots of cuts of meat available in the meat section. Purchasing the best cut of meat can be as straightforward as choosing a new package of stew meat cut into small pieces for simple browning. You can also pick a slice of beef and have the butcher cut the meat for you. However, when I decide to buy my meat, I make sure it is Angus beef since it has less marbling and is more tender than other forms of beef, ideal for the best stews.
You can not have beef stew with no vegetables. Onions are a private matter but I make sure that they are in my stew. Consider adding additional fresh seasonal ingredients from your backyard.
Most often you consider beef stew simmering on top of the stove in a Dutch oven daily. Some use their crock pot, letting the stew to simmer all day without needing to watch it over. I, however, would like to lift up an alternate. My favourite way to cook beef stew is to bring all the ingredients into my electric pressure cooker. This is the easiest and quickest”place it in and leave it” method of cooking I have found. After browning your meat (from the pressure cooker) simply add your favorite ingredients, broth and water, set the timer for a half hour or so. With an electric pressure cooker infuses flavor into all your ingredients. Simply place your frozen meats, veggies and fluids into your pressure cooker, place the controls for about one hour and PRESTO! You have a fantastic beef stew prepared to serve.
Regardless of what ingredients you opt to use or what method of cooking you opt for making beef stew to your family is a superb way to bring satisfaction and warmth to your table. Treat your family to some now!
