My roommate was eating dinty moore beef stew and it looked good, and being its a crappy day outside, i decided to make some beef stew that would blow dinty moore out of the water. Lightly sauteed: Acorn squash, mushrooms, garlic, parnips, carrots, onion and set aside to cool, then tossed in flour. Seared stew meat in large pot, then deglazed with SN 30th Ann. Stout and a bottle of Eola Hills Reserve 2007 Lodi Sangiovese. added veggies back in and beef stock to cover, brought to a boil, added diced yukon golds and celery, reduced to simmer after thickening occured. simmer until potatoes are tender, finish with fresh rosemary, sage, thyme. suck it dinty.
