Our Favorite Beef Stew with Just 4 Ingredients!

September 7, 2016 Beef

Ooh-wee! That was one fantastic summer. Early morning walks, endless sunshine, cool clouds, and tons of fun.

There is not one […]

Slow-Cooked Beef Stew

November 12, 2013 Beef

The meat for this beef stew spoke to me. Stew me, it said. And so I did. Cook me long and low, it said. Thus, I did. Bathe me in a rich and flavorful sauce, it said.

Meat slow-cooked in spices, dark beer, brown sugar, tomato paste, mustard, and vinegar is just destined for the Taste Bud Hall of Fame. So, I apologize for […]

Hearty Beef and Barley Soup II

March 6, 2013 Beef

I revised my original beef barley soup last week. Homemade soup is an absolute must in this type of weather. It’s not really winter, but not yet Spring, and they are still talking snow storms. Blecch. Get me outta here. Or at least, get me a bowl of thick “stoup” and I’ll be alright. Why […]

Sunday Dinner: Beef Burgundy with Mushrooms

I wish I were eating this right now. It’s Sunday as I write, I’m hungry, and a slow-roasted dish with tender chunks of meat, tasty mushrooms, and a thick, rich sauce sounds so good. Unfortunately, I don’t often have time for recipes with the word “slow” in it.  That’s just not the speed I operate at […]

Hearty Beef and Barley Soup

October 28, 2011 Beef

The crockpot has gotten quite the workout this week, what with the drizzle and cold and generally yucky weather. Now they are forecasting flurries.  Snow in October??  Please, no.  There is no way I should be hearing the words “snow” in a forecast when I still have summer beach towels waiting to be washed. (Ick)  Maybe […]
