First, I marinated some beef in olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano. It was a good marination.
Later, I put the beef and the marination into a pan and cooked it with red onions, red peppers and green peppers. Also some red chile flakes. After a little while I put in canned tomato sauce and let the concoction simmer, or stew, but like I said, this stewing didn't last for very long because there wasn't much liquid.
I Put My Stew on Rice - Yum
I do have a lot to learn, but the stew (albeit not very saucy and stewful) was yet stewy, at least in spirit. The fragrances and intense passions were quite full of peasant heartiness and soft wishes. Yea, I am excited to become an expert of stew, as well as pants and food. Yea, stew is in a category all its own.
But wait, does a stew have to be saucy? Perhaps not saucy, but there does need to be a liquidy component, at least some sauce? Maybe? I need to grapple with these issues.
