Every time my mom made this stew when I was a kid, I would always say “We just had it last week” and the fact was that we had it more then 3 months ago. I wasn’t a stew-lover and I hated it for years to come, but then something changed and I grew to like them. Actually felt some craving after we had a week of grilled and fried food.
Today stews usually make me think of winter, maybe that’s why I’m sharing this recipe now, hoping that thinking of winter would get me through the hot days to come. And most usually we make them during winter and autumn to keep us warm, but you can also change things a bit and make it now, a delicious dish shouldn’t be prepared just once a year and stews are not just winter dishes.
Some of the stews and soups I’ve already shared with you and you should certainly check out if you already didn’t.. are – Chicken vegetable stew, Bean and barley stew, Beef stew, Green pea soup with crispy bacon & Tomato soup.
Enjoy & happy cooking!
