Hearty Beef Stew

The ingredients are many for this recipe; however, you needn’t include them all. I love to load my stew up with veggies for differences in texture and flavour throughout. After prep, the stew pretty much does all the work. Let it sit and soak up that flavour. The only real ‘pain’ is prepping then meat. If time is an issue you may be less pedantic about the meat prep but I try to take my time with it to avoid chewy meat down the track. It’s work the time.

Chili Con Carne

The recipe makes for a medium heat chili but do feel free to adjust the chili powder to suit your own preferences. I like my chili a little hot but just not so hot that you destroy your taste buds and the ability to taste everything else. 🙂
