My cooking blog.
Quick and easy meals from a SAHM of a 2 little girls, 20 months apart!
I use this as my personal online cookbook. It's simple and easy to access, nothing frilly about this blog, but please feel free to follow if you'd like :) I started it because it's much easier than searching through multiple places for a recipe or printing out a million recipe pages ;)
Incredible St. Patrick's Day meal. Adapted from Traditional Cooking by Darina Allen.
2 lbs. lean stewing beef, cubed
3 T. grapeseed oil
2 T. flour
1/4 tsp. Wildtree's Rodeo Rub spice blend
Salt and pepper
2 large onions, coarsely chopped
1.5 tbsp garlic powder
1 small can tomato paste, dissolved in 1 can of water
1 bottle Guinness beer
4-5 carrots, cut into chunks
1/2 lb potatoes, cut into chunks
sprigs of thyme
Toss beef cubes in a bowl with 1 tablespoon oil.
Season the flour with salt, freshly ground pepper and Rodeo Rub and mix into the beef.
Heat the remaining 2 T. oil in a large Dutch oven over a high heat. Brown the meat on all sides.
Add the onions, garlic and tomato puree/water, cover and cook gently for about 5 minutes.
Pour the Guinness into the pot. Add the carrots, potatoes, and thyme.
Stir the stew, cover, and place in preheated oven for about 3 hours.
Assuming everyone likes it, this should be enough for 2+ meals, so I'll freeze the leftovers and heat them up for St. Patrick's Day dinner smile emoticon
Since I bought a package of almost 4 lbs of cubed beef at Costco the other day, I figured I'd keep chopping and use all of the meat.. I also made 2 other meals to freeze with it. I ended up cutting up 3 onions total + 3 green bell peppers, and using Wild Tree's recipe to make 2 dinners of Steak Fajitas for the freezer. So that's 4 meals, all in 30 mins smile emoticon
