Pressure Cooker Stew Beef, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Olives, Onions, and Peppers (Serves 2-3) I brought home tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers from the farm recently.

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef, Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, and Onions

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef, Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, and Onions

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef, Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, and Onions (Serves 2-3) The flesh of both purple and green kohlrabi (German turnip) are the same yellow-white. Both taste the same as best I can tell, but I like the more colorful purple kohlrabi. Kohlrabi tastes like a mild conventional turnip, but are more fun because they look like the old Soviet Sputnik spacecraft from the 1960s. They go very nicely with stew beef and tomatoes, so made a...

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef and Onions with Cauliflower-Carrot Puree

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef and Onions with Cauliflower-Carrot Puree

Pressure Cooker Stew Beef and Onions with Cauliflower-Carrot Puree (Serves 2-3) I often buy cauliflower with the intention of using it to make a Paleo version of Asian-fried rice, but never do; I always make something else. My latest “something else” was cauliflower puree, or more specifically, cauliflower-carrot puree. The technique is simple. First, steam the cauliflower and carrots 10 or 15 minutes until you can pierce them...

Sweet and Tangy Stew Beef with Wilted Spinach and Onions

Sweet and Tangy Stew Beef with Wilted Spinach and Onions

Sweet and Tangy Stew Beef with Wilted Spinach and Onions (Serves 2) Cooking is a creative adventure for me. Not every adventure has a happy ending, but Sweet and Tangy Stew Beef with Wilted Spinach and Onions does. I did not know I wanted Sweet and Tangy Stew Beef until I tried it. The idea of cooking stew beef with equal parts apple cider and apple cider vinegar came from knowing how well they work together in producing Braised Red...

Stew Beef with Round Zucchini and Carrots

Stew Beef with Round Zucchini and Carrots

Stew Beef with Round Zucchini and Carrots (Serves 4-5) Round zucchini has a nutty, sweet flavor that compliments stew beef and carrots nicely. Ordinary zucchini is an okay substitute, but now that I’ve tried round, I prefer it. This meal qualifies as comfort food that I would be happy eating every week. Prep and cook time: 50-60 minutes Ingredient list: 1 pound of stew beef (mine was frozen) 2 sweet yellow onions 1 pound of baby cut...

Grass Fed Beef Hash with Turnips and Onions

Grass Fed Beef Hash with Turnips and Onions

Grass Fed Beef Hash with Turnips and Onions (Serves 6-8) The newest meal in my collection of comfort food recipes is Grass Fed Beef Hash with Turnips and Onions. I made it with a pound of ground beef and a pound of stew beef, but you could make it with either one. I added Roasted Asparagus to increase the color on my plate, but lots of side dishes would work. Prep and cook time: 50-60 minutes Ingredient list: 1 pound of ground beef (mine...

Stew Beef with Collards, Mushrooms, and Onions

Stew Beef with Collards, Mushrooms, and Onions

Stew Beef with Collards, Mushrooms, and Onions (Serves 2-3) Collards are traditionally cooked with pork, but they are good bathed with stew beef in broth for an hour too. I added mushrooms and onions to the bath and am wondering if carrots would be good too. Hmm. Maybe next time. Rachel Ray adds nutmeg to some of her savory dishes and the abuse of nutmeg by people trying to get high with it has been in the news lately, so I added a little...

Braised Stew Beef over Wilted Red Kale

Braised Stew Beef over Wilted Red Kale

Braised Stew Beef over Wilted Red Kale (Serves 2) I have a confession to make. Fresh red kale is gorgeous, but I prefer the taste of black to red when cooked. I may work with red kale again, but will probably choose black most of the time. And a plea… This meal tastes great even though the meat looks a bit gray in my picture. Please don’t avoid braised stew beef because my photography skills are weak! Prep and Cook Time: 30-35...
