So we have a fair amount of really good stew meat (beef) and need a recipe. Most everything we see online seems really bland. Looking to chit-chat it up. Oh, and we do have hot Serrano peppers from the garden.

My favourite stew. Not sure it's what you're after though.. and it's been a few years since I saw the recipe, and mine has morphed a bit.

Not a stew, so I’m terrible because I am not answering your question, but borscht with stew meat is amazing.

My wife made this. She left the tomato paste out, though. It was a hit in our house.

Assuming you have a slow cooker:

1kg beef cut into 25mm cubes
2 medium onions, finely sliced or diced
1.5kg potatoes, cut into 40mm cubes (they need to be big)
3 carrots cut into big rounds. You can substitute swedes or turnips.
6 shallots, chopped
1 red pepper
1 cup tomato paste
2 cups red wine (can be replaced with beef or vege stock)

"Spices"
2-3 bay leaves, 1 tablespoon ginger paste, 1 tablespoon garlic paste (can be 2-3 tbl spoons if you prefer), several sprigs of thyme, 2 scotch bonnet peppers - finely diced, paprika / allspice / curry powder - 1 or 2 teaspoonas each, salt & pepper.

Canola oil

Optional extras: 2-3 celery sticks, chopped.
500g field mushrooms, cut into quarters.
Gravy powder.

E Preheat cooker.
E Brown the beef in a frypan. Dusting it with gravy powder before rrying makes the maillard reaction more intense (tip: Heston Blumenthall). Do this in several stages, not too much at a time.
E Browned beef into cooker.

(Frypan should be oily and have brown bits from the beef - this is good, but add some more canola whenever necessary).

E Put onions, shallots, garlic, capsicum and all the "spices" into the frypan. Celery too. Stir gently but constantly until the onion is translucent. Pour this mixture over the beef in the slow cooker.

- No more oil -

E Add raw mushrooms to the cooker, if you've included them.
E Add tomato paste to the hot pan and stir aggressively for about a minute. Add the wine and stir gently for a couple more minutes. Pour everything into the slow cooker.
E Carrots, potatoes into the slow cooker (or turnip, swede etc)
E Pepper and salt

Cook on high for about 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. Do not open the lid until time is up. Goes well with rice or flatbread.

Here's one I like that incorporates both beef and one of your chillies. Metric (apologies) quantities serve two.

Braised Beef with Cinnamon, Chilli and Chocolate


Ingredients: -

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
50g streaky bacon, diced
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 (red) chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
350g braising steak
1 tablespoon plain flour
200ml beef stock
200g can chopped tomatoes
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon sugar
half a cinnamon stick
25g dark chocolate, chopped


Method: -

Heat the oven to 160c/Gas 3.

Fry the bacon and onion in the oil until the onion has softened and the bacon begins to crisp. Add the garlic and chilli and cook on 1 min. Transfer this mixture to a flameproof casserole dish. Toss the beef in seasoned flour, shaking off any excess. Fry the beef in batches until browned. Deglaze the pan with the stock. Add the beef, stock, tomatoes, cayenne, sugar and cinnamon to the casserole. Bring the casserole to the boil, then transfer it to the oven for 1½ hours. Stir the chocolate into the casserole before serving.

Something just a little bit different, and very tasty.

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) garlic-seasoned diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 jar (7 ounces) green olives with pimentos, drained

Cooking:

1.Combine flour, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon flour mixture. Lightly coat beef with remaining flour mixture.

2.Heat 1 tablespoon oil in stock pot over medium heat. Brown beef in batches; adding additional 1 tablespoon oil as necessary. Set aside.
