I made a yummy beef stew!
I was in the mood for some rustic comfort food last night so I made a lovely beef stew. This was my first try making this particular kind of stew and I loved it! The flavour was so rich and scrumptious, my man gave me a huge compliment. But then he's always happy when I cook something "wholesome". :)
I used THIS recipe but made quite a few changes, if you want to try it out. I added a can of chopped tomatoes, chili powder, tomato paste, a splash of red wine, and changed the water to beef stock. I also added more garlic and Worcester sauce, some dried thyme and rosemary, and 3 stalks of celery. Once I did all that, it was delicious. This is a good basic recipe that can be added to as desired. Delicious and the meat was so tender!
Let me know if you want to see more cooking or other off-topic (non-makeup related) posts on here, cooking is my other passion and I actually think I'm quite good at it, if I do say so myself! Hehe...
