What I Made for Dinner: October 20, 2010

Beef stew.

Okay, the beef stew was, in fact, very tasty.  I'm feeling much less grouchy with a day's distance from making the damn thing.  It was really nice to have a healthy, hot meal ready for the family to eat in the twenty minutes we had to eat dinner between Hebrew school and basketball practice. 

So I can say it was worth it, although I still maintain it took way too long to assemble it last night.  (Plus, the cookbook's proviso "Like all stews, this one gets better with age, so . . . cook it a day or two before serving" is ridiculous in the context of a busy family's Crock Pot cooking.)

I will try it again, but next time I'll try a few modifications to see if I can make it more quickly.

  1. I know it's supposed to be one of the easiest things to cook in the crock, but I've yet to have a stew I was happy with. I have kindo f an experiment in the CP right now so we'll see if we have a happy family at dinner or not.
