Canadian Living recently featured a an article promoting recipes rich in grains. This soup looked so comforting and satisfying, I knew that as autumn arrived it would be the perfect meal. Submitted for 'Zaar World Tour.
I think this is our #1 all time family favorite and it's often requested for birthday dinners. It's the 'Bestest' because my daughter described it as such when she was little. This freezes well and I've added directions for that and for reheating.
This very quich soup is a nice way to warm these cold days and comfort those colds. The hot pepper can be ommitted, crushed, seeded, chopped, or left whole depending on if you like heat in your soup. Throw in any vegies you like Bok choy or fresh spinach is good.
A unique chili using a mixture of meats. It is spicy and loaded with flavor. The name of this recipe used to be Chili Colorado, but I challenged my new friend, Chef #383557, to make and rename the recipe for me after he pointed out that it was not a typical Chili Colorado recipe. (Please see his delightful review. I changed the measurement of the stew meat because if his review and because I also prefer more of this meat in my chili. I also like his idea for marinading the stew meat.) It was all in good fun and I am pleased with the new name. Thank you Bruce! Thank you also too all the reviewers of this recipe.
Hoisin sauce is a sweet and spicy sauce that brings out extra flavor in any dish, you can find it in the Asian section of any large supermarket, all amounts may be adjusted to taste --- try this using a small chuck roast instead of beef cubes and increase the cooking time, the recipe may be doubled if desired --- I have made this stew many times it is *very* good!
This is my husband’s all time favorite. It is a Pennsylvania Dutch treat that his mother showed me how to make and his eyes light up every time I make it. The ham, onion and potatoes create a union a pure joy and one happy man!
Based off my Dad's basic soup recipe. I had a house full of sickies tonight so I whipped this up to try to soothe and heal. ;) The feedback from DH and kids was an overwhelming - YUMMY!! SO...I guess it is Zaar worthy. ***Note I made this with 8oz of star pasta and although fabulous, it did continue to swell through the evening. We just added broth to extend the soup for the next day's lunches/dinner. I have adjusted the recipe accordingly to reduce this, but just a note to be aware. ;)
You will not believe the deeply satisfying flavour of this stew. This is our favourite wintry stew dish - comfort food to the max. The cooking time is more or less accurate, but it really depends on the cut of meat used - not everyone used chuck, and then, not all chuck is the same! You really have to poke and prod and taste to get it to where you want it...but that's what cooking is all about, isn't it? ;-)
Easy and delicious! Very thick and hearty! Freezes well! (I always make a double batch and freeze 2/3.) Update: If you overcook, the soup will get even thicker than usual! and turn a little bit of an olive drab color--it will still taste good though!
