FarmVille Farmer’s FABULOUS Fall Stew Recipe
I just had another small bowl of my new Stew and decided I MUST share the recipe. This is waaaay to good to keep to myself.
The FarmVille Farmer’s FABULOUS Fall Stew Recipe
1½ lbs beef tenderloin or bison, cut into one-inch cubes
2 leeks, white and light green only, cut into chunks and well rinsed
3 medium-sized cooking onions, cut into chunks (I used an Italian onion)
3 carrot, peeled and chunked
3 parsnips, give ’em the carrot treatment
1 small can whole tomatoes
1 small can small potatoes (trust me, canned holds up best!), drained
½ cup whole-wheat flour (I used graham flour)
sea salt and black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 cup low-sodium, low fat broth (chicken, vegetable or beef)
1 cup light beer
A1 Steak Sauce, some
Freshly ground red pepper flakes (to taste)
1. Place flour, salt, pepper, oregano and basil large zip-lock bag, add meat and shake, shake, shake. Brown meat in oil, de-glaze pan with beer and simmer for a few minutes. Drink remaining 4 ounces of beer while flavors develop.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large Dutch oven and saute the garlic and onions until soft. Add remaining vegetables, except canned potatoes, cook 5 at least minutes more.
3. Toss meat into Dutch oven, add broth and a couple a shakes of A1 Steak Sauce. Check seasoning.
4. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add potatoes and cook over low heat or covered in oven for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add broth if it starts looking too thick.
