    I am going to make a big batch of my killer beef stew tomorrow.

    Flour and season the beef and brown it.
    Use some beef stock to deglaze the pan when it's done.

    Meat goes into the crock with cubed red potatoes, baby carrots, onions, celery, spicy V8 juice and the beef stock that I used to deglaze, some hot sauce and a little Worchestershire (and maybe a little beef base if it needs it). Let it rip 6/7 hours then add frozen corn, green beans, a can of tomatoes and maybe a can of kidney beans and a few peas and let it go another couple hours.
    I might chop some cabbage to add to individual servings. I love it, but I'm the only one.

    Served with warm French bread.
    Can't wait.

    as it gets colder out i make it more and more. its one of the few dishes i can makes pretty good every time.

    i love when others make it so i can learn different ways too. I never used hot sauce before, but now i have to try it.

    The hot sauce gives it a little twang that I like but the spicy V8 is what makes it great IMHO.

    adding some bacon and switching Cabernet Sauvingon for the red cooking wine, and beef stock instead of chicken stock turns the beef stew into Beef Bourguignon

    I'm sorry. I am a horrible poster. I got too scared when I realized that my countertops weren't granite and my ladle wasn't from pampered chef.

    It game out really good tho. The meat, potatoes, onions and carrots cooked a lot longer than I expected (about 11/12 hours) but everything held up fine.

    I'm telling ya, that mix of spicy V8, hot sauce, beef stock, beef base makes some amazing broth.

    Twice baked potatoes, I skin them, bake them, then mash and put in a ramekin to finish in the oven. I get more potato that way versus the traditional way. Steak is a very big Rib Eye that I cut in half, going to have the other half tonight :yes:
