Steak and Ale Casserole/pie

1 Kilo stewing steak cubed
1 pint bottle of dark beer
seasoned flour
5 or 6 largish mushrooms sliced
3 large carrots chopped
1 stick of celery chopped
1 large onion chopped
1 jar/tin of white beans
1 sprig of Rosemary
1 sprig of thyme
oil (i use Olive)

heat oil in a casserole.
put meat in a plastic bag with sufficient flour to cover the meat and then brown the meat in batches and then remove from casserole

When all meat is browned, put a little more oil in pan and soften the onions on a low heat turn up the heat and add Mushrooms, Celery and carrots and fry then return the meat to the pan and add the beer

I like to use a sweetish beer more then a stout. Any english style beer can be used i just prefer a dark beer.

add the herbs and cook slowly for 2 to 3 hours until the meat is starting to fall apart.

if you want a pie add a pastry crust

stuk brood

yeah, brood, that is Dutch, though the recipes are not.

I just like to show off that I know how to say bread in Dutch. ( -;

though for years I used to pronounce it broood, not brOd which would give me some odd looks in Holland.

we got one of these model M880 and it kicks ass!

it is great for kneeding brood dough, (though we usually just use the brood maker for that) chopping in the little (it is a bit too small) cuisinart type chopper thing, and what I ESPECIALLY love is the soup puree thing that I can put directly into the cooking pot. that fucking rules. I made an awesome carrot soup the other day, and after I boiled the carrots a bit, I pureed them to perfection.

peace.

okay...

where's the recipe for that Steak and Ale Casserole, Bob?

No fair conjuring up the vision and not telling us how to make it, heh!

that sounds good Mr Pid!

Soup on the way now (with squash,chick peas and curry spices), but I will try your recipe for sure next time! Thanks

Squash

Badger, it sounds like you might have an acorn squash, unless it's one of those roundish UFO-looking things, in which case I can't attest to the following, but here's what I like to do with acorn squash.

Split vertically, scrape out the seeds.
Into the resulting cavities, chuck 1 -2 tablespoons of butter, a tablespoon of brown sugar, a couple shakes of ground cinnamon, a shake of ground allspice, a shake of ground nutmeg, a dash of salt and just the tiniest smidge of black pepper.

Bake at 350F until thoroughly gushy, 40, 45 minutes or so.

Scrape the gooey orange stuff out of the skins into a bowl and mash thoroughly.
Serve as a side dish with a hearty meal, ever so lightly dusted with ground corriander.
Counterpoint with nice peppery shiraz.

This approach also works well with butternut squash.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Ah, Yes

We do those potatoes every time we go camping. By wrapping them in tin foil. Very GOOD!

See, I'm learning new things everyday! Estufa!

Thanks Bob & enjoy your dinner

empty nesters

yeah one brood has flown the nest, not in a hurry for another one, even with Joe's instructions!

Soup tonight. I bought a mysterious odd shaped green and orange squash at the market and the woman said to turn it into soup. Who am I to argue? Everyone in the market here wants to tell you at length how to cook the food they sell you and what to drink with it.
