How to Make Quick Stew Meat

quick stew meat recipe

You have decided to try quick stew meat. You have already picked your choice of the cuts you would like to make. Next is to figure out what kind of spices you will need to add and what quantity. This is where it gets tricky. If you use too much, it will be overpowering; if you use too little it will be bland.

The best way to do this is to create several different recipes with various amounts of each spice/mineral. If you cook enough pieces at a time, you will end up with the tastiest and most filling meal. Don’t be tempted to just dump everything in the pot one at a time and let it cook. If you do that, you are setting yourself up for foul-tasting vegetables. Instead, break it up very slowly, adding small amounts at a time.

When creating a stew meat recipe, you must use lean cuts of meat. You can get away with using skirt steak or upper-cut round steak if you are short on time. If you use other types of meat, such as hound, turkey, or lamb, the flavors will not come out as well. It is much better to get the meat cut thinly so as not to overwhelm the vegetables with the flavor of the meat.

Before you start cooking, make sure you have the right amount of spices. Too much salt can spoil your dish. You can also use too much garlic and onions, which will make it an unpleasant meal. Experiment by adding a bit of each spice. If it does not taste right, throw it out and try another combination.

You can add a variety of vegetables at the same time. This will help to enhance the flavors of the meat as well as provide some contrasting vegetables to the taste of the meat. Carrots will brighten up a piece of meat while squash will make it sweeter.

When it comes to meats, kidney, chicken, and beef are your best choices. These meats are more firm in texture and do not have as many nutrients in them as the fish. They are also easier to grill and steam. Fish and vegetables should be cooked separately. Cook them separately until they are slightly tender but not mushy.

You will need to have a large stockpot for this recipe. Add a wide variety of vegetables to your stockpot. Add enough water to thoroughly cover all the vegetables except for the parsley. Once the stockpot boils, turn the heat to medium-low. Cook the vegetables until they are soft and drain them well.

A Much Ado

Serve the meat with bread crumbs and baked potatoes. This will get the dish ready to serve. The meat will be well coated with bread crumbs. Use a tasty sauce to make the meal taste better.

Forgot to eat that piece of cheese earlier? It is time to get rid of it now. Get rid of the excess cheese by using your sharpest knife. You can slice it into quarter-inch pieces. Now get a pot of water and bring it to a boil. Add the chopped pieces of cheese into the water.

Let the mixture boil for about ten minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool down. While it is cooling down, get rid of the excess liquid by using a strainer. Once the mixture has cooled down, get out the meat and place it into your slow cooker. Add the vegetable pieces at the same time and cover the lid of the cooker.

Put the contents of your cooker into your slow cooker. Cover the lid and put it in your kitchen. Let the contents simmer for about an hour. When the meat gets tender you can shred it into little pieces or dice it.

Bottom Line

In some recipes, like the classic Irish stew meat, there is no mention of vegetables. If you are not familiar with Irish recipes, you can check out the Internet for other types of quick stew meat.
