I love to cook, and many of my family loves cooking too, but we all have our own little Twists on recipes and that's what I'm here to share with you, My Twists on some great recipes that make them even more tasty.
Some are new some are old favorites but I put time and love into everything I make and write about.
Ingredients: 4 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 cans (6 ounces each) tomato paste 2 1/2 pounds new potatoes, scrubbed 2 medium onions, cut into 1-inch pieces 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium beef broth 1 can (14.9 ounces) Irish stout beer 10 garlic cloves, sliced Coarse salt and ground pepper 2 boxes (10 ounces each) frozen baby peas, thawed
Directions: Preheat oven to 350. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy pot, toss beef with flour; stir in tomato paste. Add potatoes, onions, broth, beer, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cover, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Transfer pot to oven, and cook, covered, until meat is fork-tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Stir in peas, and season with salt and pepper.
Cook's Note: To freeze, divide stew among airtight plastic containers. Freeze up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator (or place containers under cold running water to release stew) before reheating.
