Winter Stew

My least favourite season of the year - so maybe I will "celebrate" with a new recipe (OK, I am posting it 2 days late!).

In this case, I had run out of ginger - but mint and rosemary made an interesting substitute.
  • 2 T / 2 cubes bouillon
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 3 or 4 good sized carrots, chopped
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can peas
  • 1 can tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 pound tube steaks
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1 T dried mint, crumbled
  • 1/2 t rosemary, crumbled
  • 4 C water
  • 2 C white rice

  1. Dice, chop, mince, slice fresh vegetables, set aside.
  2. Slice tube steaks, into 1/4" medallions.
  3. Heat up large dutch oven, add 1 T or so cooking oil, saute garlic 30 seconds or so (I Love the aroma of garlic, frying).
  4. Add onions, jalapeno pepper, saute until onion is transparent.
  5. Add bouillon, carrots, corn, peas, tomatoes, spices, tube steak medallions, water, mix well. Cook until largest chunks of carrots are chewy.
  6. Add rice, mix well. Cook until rice is soft. Stir rice frequently, add water if necessary.

Serve with warm (steamed) tortillas, and dark Mexican beer - Negra Modelo would be my fave here.
