My own recipe of Spanish beef stew
05 August 2016 @ 12:28

       The day before yesterday, I cooked a beef stew and I thought that maybe you would be interested to know how I did it. So, I took a picture of it, when I finished, and I thought to give you the recipe and put the picture here.

      The recipe is very simple. These are my Ingredients (for 4 persons):  ½ kilogram of beef (a calf). 2 onions.  3 cloves of garlic. 1 large potato and 3 small. 2 large carrots. A little bit of white wine. 1 tablespoon with olive oil. 2 small tablespoon with Bovril (a salted beef extract) –I like Bovril, because it gives the stew a brown colour, with a meat flavour--.

      Then, I did the following:  I peeled the potatoes and put them under water, to remove the starch; I cut the potatoes into rather small cubes. After that, I peeled the carrots and cut them into slices. I also peeled the onions and chopped not elongated but very very small cubes. Then, I peeled and chopped 3 cloves garlic. Then, I put the onion and garlic, to sautée, in a pressure cooker. After one minute, stiring the onion and the garlic, I put the meat --which I had already cut into rather small cubes--.

      When the meat was braised, I put the potatoes --and I stired everything--. I poured  the carrots --I also stired everything--. Then, I poured a handful of fine salt and a little bit of white wine. I stired everything, several times, over a high heat, in order that the alcohol was evaporated .After 5 minutes, more or less, I poured the Bovril and a glass and a half of water. Always stiring everything.

      After 2 minutes, I closed the pressure cooker and I left it with a low heat during 12 minutes.

      Then, I opened the pressure cooked and I found this one:

       Well, I hope that you have liked the recipe and hope that you want to try to cook it. If you do that, please tell me it.

      Until my next post, thank you for reading my blog and kind regards.

White wine on red meat complete no no

Hi, hughjardon: I respect your opinion --and I appreciate your sincerity--; but I love the red or white meat with white wine, because it seems softer; once, I ate red meat with red wine and I did not like it absolutely, because it seemed too much strong. Perhaps that is why I like the Ribera del Duero wine more than the Rioja wine, which is more strong; but I do not use to drink alcohol.Anyway, thank you for reading my blog and kind regards. Luis.
