A Stew for a Rainy Day

Today was wet, windy, and cold. What better time than now to cook up a batch of nice warm pot of beef stew. It's really simple to make and can be ready to eat in a couple of hours.

Dice up some onion.

Some potatoes

Chop up some bell peppers. I didn't have large ones, but these small ones work just as good.

I personally don't like stew meat because it ends up being dry, instead I prefer rib meat. This is true for stew or curries.

Saute onion, garlic, carrots, and bell peppers, and carrots.

When the onion browns, add the rib meat.

Sprinkle in spices on like caraway seeds, rosemary, and paprika. Also add some salt and pepper, but not too much, we'll adjust taste at the end.

Add a can of chopped tomatoes.

Add about a cup of cheap Cabernet or Merlot. Save the good stuff for dinner!

Add a bit of water and bring to a boil.

Add the potatoes and simmer until meat is tender. When almost done, adjust taste by adding more salt and peppers if necessary.

Add parsley, a dollop of sour cream, and eat it with a good bread or rice.

That's eat. A great comforting meal for a cold night.
