3. I can't quite explain it, but I love cooking beef stew. I love the recipe from America's Test Kitchen (I've probably written this before) -- I enjoy trimming the chuck roast and cutting it into inch and a half pieces, rather than buying stew meat. I enjoy the browning, the way I've added rutabagas, turnips. parsley, and brown mushrooms to the recipe. I enjoy how this stew sits in the oven at 300 degrees for two hours. For Sunday dinner, the Deke and I plan to make egg noodles and serve the stew over the noodles. It's really fun.
