the meat and not turn it brown.
When adding the cooking liquid to your stew, scrape
any of the brown bits that adhere to the sides of the pan. These brown
bits will add color and flavor to your stew.
Stews thicken when left standing. So add broth or
water to the stew before re-heating.
Beef stews last longer than you think and may be refrigerated
for up to three to four days or even a month! However, it does spoil.
So when you want to refrigerate it for a lengthy period of time, be sure
to undercook the veggies in your stew. When serving, just reheat and stir
continuously over medium-low heat.
Saving money? Make a big bath of stew (for eating
