Winter Vegetable Stew

  • 2 chopped onions
  • 2 chopped pieces of celery
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 medium parsnips
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 large potato
  • 10 ounces green beans
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • 1 tsp. of marjoram
  • 1 can vegetable stock
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. of molasses
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a pot over medium low heat. Add the onions and celery and sauté the mixture for a few minutes until it becomes soft. Add the vegetables (up to the green beans) on the list of ingredients in order. Stir the mixture after each addition of a new vegetable. Add the green beans, herbs, stock, and water, and bring the mixture to a boil. Chop up the pepper and mushrooms and stir them in with the mustard and molasses. Partially cover and simmer for ten minutes. Add salt and pepper to the vegetarian winter stew to taste.

Winter Beef Stew

  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast (cut the pieces into 1-1/4-inches each)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. of canola oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1-1/2 pounds small red potato chunks
  • 3 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, divided into quarters
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, cut into halves
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. of pepper
  • 1 bacon strip, crumbled

    Cook the meat and chopped onion, in oil, over medium-high heat. Continue to cook until the meat is browned on all sides. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Drain the mixture and then add the potatoes, carrots, quartered onions, and mushrooms. In a separate bowl, combine the broth, apple juice, tomato paste, parsley, bay leaves, salt, thyme, and pepper. Pour the mixture over the meat. Cover the stew and bake it at 325°F for two hours. Stir it occasionally. Continue to bake the stew, except this time uncovered, for 30-45 more minutes, until the stew becomes thick. Throw away the bay leaves, and sprinkle the stew with bacon.
