I have been craving stew for weeks. This week I finally made a batch. There was still some snow on the ground this morning, so it seemed like the perfect day to cook something in the oven for over two hours.
The stew I make is Hearty Beef Stew from a 1996 issue of Cook’s Illustrated. The house smells wonderful when this is cooking. The recipe calls for one cup of red wine, which is ideal, because that means I can have a glass with dinner without opening the bottle for one glass of wine.
I also made cornmeal dinner rolls to have with the stew. The recipe is easy, delicious, and makes way too many rolls for a family of four. We will be eating them as breakfast sliders (egg and cheese on a bun) for the rest of the week.
Have you made anything tasty this week?
