This will be delicious at the end of a long and somewhat dreary day. It took me 15 min to prepare this morning and I cooked it stove top in my Dutch Oven for about 2 1/2 hours. You can also pop it in the a crock pot so it’s ready when you get home if you’ll be gone all day. The method to my cooking & nutrition madness is that I typically try to only keep fresh, healthy, and good for me foods in my kitchen. This way, if I snack I’m snacking well! When I prepare a meal I always first think about what I have in my kitchen that I need to use up. Thank goodness this morning I had lots of fresh veggies and a bit of wine leftover! *

What I used:
– 1 pound chopped organic, grass fed beef chunks
– Chopped organic carrots, potatoes, frozen organic peas, celery, onion, garlic,
– Splash of white or red wine (I used white, it’s what I had). 1 quart organic beef broth, salt and pepper, fresh or dried Dill and Rosemary, flour.
What I did:
– I added a bit of olive oil into my Dutch Oven and sautéed 1 whole chopped red onion & a few smashed garlic cloves, then I took my meat chunks and moved them around in a large bowl filled w about 1/2 cup flour (I sprinkled s&p and rosemary into the flour), once the meat was covered w flour I placed it into the Dutch Oven w the onion and garlic. I moved it around and added 1/2 cup of wine. I let the meat cook about 20 min until the liquid started to evaporate and then I added the broth. I cooked the meat on low for another 20 min and then added all of my chopped veggies and the rest of my spices to taste. It simmered for another hour and then I put it in the fridge and will re-heat tonight. Just cook until all the veggies are soft but not mushy. I’m picking up a loaf of fresh bread from a bakery in town on the way home later and slicing a few apples on the side. Yum!
Try it and let me know what you think!
