Hence why I rarely cook stew when she's around. But tonight, since it's been cold for days, and she's not around, I decided I'd do a stew.
It seems, however, that other people had the same idea, so that all of the beef and veal stew meat were sold out when I got to the store.
What was left was pork stew meat - and I've never made a pork stew before.
But, fuck it, I really wanted stew.
So, I decided to improvise. With beef stew I tend to use Guinness as the base. With veal I tend to use lager.
But, it sorta felt like hops things would be wrong.
This is how I'm cooking it and who the hell knows how it will turn out:
Cheap Red Wine
I'll let you know if I end up eating it or if it becomes cat food for the rest of the week.
