Don’t you love the crockpot? Makes dinner for you while you are away-sort of a dream spouse.
I’ve tinkered with this recipe for awhile and I think that I’ve nailed it now. Just dump everything in-set it on high for 6 hours and you are set to go.
Here’s the list:
1 lb. stewing beef
1 T curry paste
1 onion (I used a nice leek because I had it but it is totally not required)
2 cups small potatoes
2 cups mushrooms
1 cup red wine
5 cups beef broth
1 tsp rosemary
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp chipotle
1 T cocoa
1 tsp worstershire
Let everything buble away. 20 minutes before you are ready to eat take 1/4 cup cornstarch and mix with a cup of broth. Stir into the stew and let thicken. Enjoy with lots of homemade bread.
How about a little reinvention? I rolled out a sheet of puff pastry 1 1/2 ft x 2 ft…
Lovely, Chipotle Stew Hand Pies. We had these for dinner and took them for lunch to work the next day. Truly wonderful AND what I’ll do next time is make small ones and serve them as appetizers.
