I know that many of you are experiencing chilly Autumn temperatures already, and I am green with envy! It's still warm and humid here, don't expect a significant drop in temperatures anytime soon. But that doesn't mean I can't turn down the a/c and pretend it's cool outside, right?
I have shared this beef(less) stew recipe with you already, but it's so good, it deserves another posting. Since I don't have a Dutch oven, I used my "spaghetti pot" for simmering, but I think it would be awesome in aslowcooker as well. Just be sure to follow the first steps, cooking the Gardein & onion separately because that keeps the "meat" from getting mushy. Also, I had some unusually big baby carrots so I cut them into chunks instead of leaving whole, I liked it better that way because then the vegetables were uniform in size and cooked evenly.
Again, you can find the original recipe over at Meet the Shannons. So many goodies over there, I could spend days browsing!
