Sunday Stew

I bought some stew meat and today was the day to rustle up some beef stew.
I had forgotten how long it takes me to chop carrots, potatoes, onions, cabbage, dice tomatoes and smash garlic. Yes, instead of buying frozen veggies, I went all "from scratch." It took me an hour to brown the meat and chop everything else.

I remember some chef on tv saying to only brown a small amount of meat at a time. If you overload the pan, the meat will steam and not brown.

I must have done ok because it was really pretty good! Lee even asked for a second bowl. That's the first time I can remember that happening. I added some Mesquite seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, of  course. And a squirt of catsup.

There are leftovers for tomorrow.   And I LOVE my yellow cast iron pot!!


  1. I usually roast my beef roast in the oven while I am chopping...but then I usually make tow huge day soon I have to make it again. Not this week ...I love using all good fall vegetables:)

  2. Ooooh, that looks SO good. I haven't made a good soup/stew in ages. Well, since last winter. I did throw chicken, tomatoes and some spices in the crockpot on Friday and we ate it over cauliflower rice. It was delicious.
