A vegan stew typical in Brazil. Prep time does not include bean soaking. You can probably streamline this by using the equivelent amount of canned black beans, rinsed and drained and skip the beginning step.
"Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco can be touristy, but Bobby Flay goes there to eat 'literally boatloads' of its famous seafood stews (his favorite spots are Pompei's Grotto, Nick's Lighthouse and Tarantino's.)" Flay's version uses generous portions of fresh shrimp, littleneck clams and snapper, quickly cooked in a tasty tomato broth spiked with dry white wine. F&W Magazine, July 2005 edition. From: Bobby Flay's All-American Flavors.A vibrant Italian white with a citrus character like the 2003 Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino.
This recipe is how I found out I like Cuban food, a lot. My husband, who is Colombian, loved this also. I just have to hide from him the fact that after cooking for a couple of hours the onions and peppers are discarded and new ones put in for the final simmer. He would find this wasteful, but it adds to the taste and texture of the dish. Don't be afraid of the rather large list of ingredients, the recipe is really easy, and oh so delicious.
I'm Jamaican and this is the way my Mama made brown stew chicken. It's traditionally served with rice and peas, sliced tomatoes / avocado and fried ripe plantain. If you cut the chicken into very small pieces, you'll need to reduce the cooking times. Enjoy!
My mother has been making this stew since I was a little kid. It grows on you until one day you crave it! Adapted from a Heinz ketchup recipe. I do prefer Heinz in the recipe as well. Stew is good both with and without the wine if there is none on hand, just increase the water a 1/4 cup. This freezes very well too.
You don't have to be lazy, just pressed for time, to enjoy this flavorful, easy-to-throw-together one dish meal. But, on a lazy Saturday in the middle of winter, this smells wonderful while its cooking and sure hits the spot at suppertime, served with some fresh bread and butter. This recipe has been around a long time and has been used by buzy moms (and lazy bachelors) everywhere.
Ok, bear with me. Beer stew? I assure you that if you have ever enjoyed a beer with a nice cut of beef, then you will like this. If not, try it anyways. I go with a light beer, just because that is what we usually have on hand. You can use any kind of beer you like. This is great because it cooks up in one pan, from the stove to your oven! A nice stew to chase away the cold in the house and warm your belly.
