Tips for a yummy beef stew

  • It is true that all these types of stews take time, and that it is necessary to treat them with care and without haste to achieve the desired result. But we can complicate ourselves in its initial process or not.
  • Today’s stew is one of those in which the steps are minimal and the result of category.
  • In addition to respecting cooking times, the key to getting a stew to our liking, is also in the chosen meat. On this occasion I have chosen the so-called veal needle . This piece is located next to the high back, between the two shoulders. It is an especially juicy part, ideal for stews and stews.
  • A good stew requires hours of cooking and low heat. It is preferable to cook it in a traditional pot or casserole and if we opt for the express pot, we must bear in mind that not all ingredients have the same cooking point. My advice if you do not have that time is to prepare it first in the express pot and the final touch, give it in the traditional casserole.
  • If you are going to prepare more and want to freeze, it is better to prepare this stew as is. When we take it out of the freezer to take the tupper to work for example, we prepare some white rice that will be pearlized. A perfect accompaniment to this stew.
  • This stew goes a long way, since the sauce is delicious and you will surely take it by spreading bread on it. Like most casseroles, the dish improves from one day to the next, so this recipe has the convenience of being able to be prepared the day before. Also be great to take to work in a tupper , since with an overheated it will be the same or better than just made.
