Article: Root Vegetables Combine for a Warming Winter Stew
gessiegail Taft, TX (Zone 9a) Thanks for your ideas for soup. It is my favorite food in the winter. Yesterday I came in from being out of town and found some stew meat and oxtail bones in the freezer. Boiled that for 3 hours in beef broth and then added onions, head of cabbage, fresh okra, potatoes, barley and peas. Put the soup into 12 containers in the deep freeze and I have 12 meals ahead of me. I love to leave the tomatoes out. (although sometimes a squeeze of lemon does the same thing for flavoring)
I don't think anyone can 'mess up' a good soup.
critterologist Frederick, MD (Zone 6b) Yum! Oxtail makes a wonderful soup stock... Thanks for the reminder! I'll have to pick some up next time we're at the butcher's.
Try browning meat and bones for stock under the broiler or in the bottom of the pot before adding water for additional flavor and rich color.
gessiegail Taft, TX (Zone 9a) I always brown the stew meat and oxtails very well in a little olive oil before I add any water. You are right on the money on that one!
critterologist Frederick, MD (Zone 6b) It's lovely to have all those good meals in the fridge... perfect for a blustery day!
We've got some cold weather here, so you know what we're having for dinner! :-)
cathy4 St. Louis County, MO (Zone 5a) I've got a pork loin and sweet potatoes roasting in the crock pot today, but part of it will turn into soup later this week.
critterologist Frederick, MD (Zone 6b) Yum! Pork makes a great goulash with lots of paprika and red peppers... I have no idea if my pork stew concoction resembles genuine Hungarian goulash at all, but I like it!
