Today I made a very large pot of stew. It is just for my husband and me and will probably last for 3 meals. We often cook a lot of something so we don't have to cook every day.
I've been making stew for over 55 years but am curious if there are other recipes for it that any of you use that is not the standard - beef, onions, liquid/broth, carrots, potatoes.
Interested in what you use for seasoning it and if you use any different vegetables than I mentioned. Obviously I am not speaking about warming it from a can or from frozen, just for those who make it from scratch.
We started subbing turnips for potatoes a few years ago and we really like the stew that way. We also add a parsnip or two, but basically the same recipe as almost everyone else. Main difference for us, now, is that we do it in the Instant Pot and it doesn't take any time at all.
We love Beef Stew during this cold weather. We make it pretty much standard except we usually add garlic. Couple of posts here talked about substituting the potatoes with turnips...that sounds good. Might try that next time. We've also made stew with wild game...usually Deer, sometimes rabbit or squirrel.
