“Hearty” Beef Stew… by Gloria

If you are anything like me, you know that going out to eat on Valentine’s Day can be totally overrated. In my experience, I always feel rushed and the pre-fixe menus hardly warrant the inflated V-day prices- but that’s just my opinion. This year, I decided to cook dinner for my love and spend an intimate evening at home with a nice bottle of wine. After all, the way to a guys heart is through his tummy! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!

Lightly coat beef brisket cubes in flour.

Brown them in a pan with a bit of olive oil.

 In a separate pot, sauté some onion and garlic.

Add tomato puree

Add browned beef

Let simmer for 1 ½ hours.

Add salt to taste

 Add Carrots, potatoes and celery.

Let simmer for another ½ hour.

 Boil fresh pasta (my favorite is fresh tagliolini)

 Serve stew over pasta

      Love this!

      My favorite thing to do is cook new Recipes!

      For the beef, can you do the same thing in a crock pot?
