Sunday Night Dinner
I want to personally thank Ree Drummond for her Beef Stew recipe. thepioneerwoman.com/beef-stew-with-beer-and-paprika/ Check this link for the exact recipe and her instructions. I have all her cookbooks...and I love her recipes and the directions with photos in her books.
Today, Sunday, I made Elk Stew with Beer and Paprika.
I changed this recipe a bit by using some tough old elk steak, and my home grown carrots and potatoes. This elk meat is very tough....and I thought that I might get it tender using Ree's method. I used the all day, slow and low method. It worked, and I was rewarded with a wonderful pot of stew.
I even used my new Cuisinart small dutch oven! Perfect for cooking for 2! We have many regular cast iron items around, but this one is my first enameled one. I will be using it frequently...
And after all this, and a great meal...hubby did not thank me, or compliment me. Bummer............but I think that he must have liked it...he ate 2 bowls.
