My mouth is watering and I haven’t even started talking about this delicious recipe. I found this recipe in a Real Simple magazine – it caught my eye because it seemed hearty, which is a must when cooking for my hubby in the winter. Ryan spends several hours of the day in the cold weather, so when he comes home I like to have a hot, tasty meal waiting for him. It’s also a refreshing change from the beef stew we usually make.
I also dig this recipe because it’s only a handful of ingredients that I don’t usually have on hand, which means it’s easy on the pocketbook. Oh and I LOVE meals that last several nights, although we enjoy cooking, after a long day it’s nice to just warm up leftovers and focus on family time rather than cooking and cleaning.
The most important tip is to start this recipe early in the day, so that the flavors have time to develop. Pick a day that you’ll be home so that you can keep an eye on it. Ryan and I made this stew on a Saturday, we had everything in the stock pot by Noon and it was ready to eat for dinner.
