Since I took the day off from cooking yesterday, except to make Flan for my family, I am cooking tonight. The other day, Safeway had a 1/2 price off stewing beef cubes and of course, I took advantage of it. I think I bought approximately 2 lbs. of it at a fraction of the original cost.
Menu: Old-Fashioned Beef Stew Steamed White Rice Steamed broccoli with garlic vinaigrette
Recipe for Beef Stew: I usually make the one in the Good Housekeeping Cookbook. However, this recipe found HERE looks fairly close to the one I use.
I don't know about anywhere else but in my family home growing up in New Jersey and here in Hawaii, we eat beef stew with rice as a side dish.
Recipe for Broccoli with Garlic Vinaigrette
3 garlic cloves, finely minced 1/4 tsp salt or to taste. Mix both well in a small bowl Add 1/8 to 1/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar (very healthy) Add two tablespoons of vegetable oil and blend well. Use as a dip for the steamed broccoli, artichoke hearts, or almost any other vegetable.
