Monday… does anyone really love Monday? I don’t and especially after DST Spring ahead… Tonight, I needed to whip Hubster up something hearty, simple and easy. Once again, something I could just prep and forget… This is personally my busiest month at work.

Hubster's Beef Stew

Hubster's Beef Stew

 

Ingredients:
cubed steak, 2 shallots, 2 Tbsp. butter, 4 cubed potatoes, 5 sliced carrots, 1 bunch celery (chopped), 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp. celery seed, 1 tsp. mustard seed, 2 c. white wine, water, fresh cracked black pepper, fresh ground sea salt.

Directions:
Melt butter in stock pot, add shallots and meat and brown. Add wine, bay leaves, celery seed and mustard seed, bring to a boil. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, salt pepper and cover with water. Place lid on pot and simmer for a few hours. Discard bay leaves. Serve hot.

Hubster doesn’t like gravy in his stew, but you can take the broth and thicken it with cornstarch or flour.

Tonight, my meat & potatoes man had his meat & potatoes and ate it too…
Serve over alone, over rice, with biscuits or bread. Hubster had his stew with a big chunk of Irish Soda Bread. I used a semi-sweet whit table wine for this recipe.

What are Mondays like for you?
