So last night, 12/28/2008, I decided to make some beef stew. So I started defrosting 1.5 pounds of beef stew meat from Thundering Hooves, and 4 cups of vegetable stock I made in October and froze. This morning, I cut up 4 potatoes, 6 carrots, and 1 onion into big chunks, and minced 3 cloves of garlic.

I then browned the stew meat in my iron skillet, a little at a time, and put the potatoes and carrots in the bottom of the slow cooker and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. I added the browned beef to the cooker, then the garlic, the onions and then a can of S&W stewed tomatoes with chilies. I slow cooked the mess for an hour at high, then on low for 7 hours.

I can tell you that in the last two hours, I was nearly driven insane by the smell of the stew. Mmm, mmm. I had a big bowl of it and it was good. I’ve let it cool and its in the fridge in my big glass storage jar. Dinner for the week! And, except for the canned tomatoes and seasonings, it's entirely local! Local potatoes, local carrots, local onions, local garlic, local beef!
