Beef Stew On Rice

This is a dish perfect for a stay-home lazy Sunday. I woke up early, raring to go to the kitchen to cook this because it takes quite a while to slowly cook it over the stove and I want to have it ready for lunch.

The base of a good stew, a beautiful Mirepoix

The cut of beef I used was a chuck tender, perfect for stewing. I never know how to cut beef. With the grain or against the grain? I don’t even know where the grain is! Oh well. In my kitchen, anything goes!

Just like any stew recipes, the beef was browned first to get it a little caramelized, which equals to tons of flavour. But unlike any stew recipes, I used beef stock in cubes instead of red wine to simmer the beef in.

And because I was in a lazy mood, I threw in potatoes into the stew instead of making mashed potatoes to eat alongside the stew. Then I served the stew with rice which was just cooked in the rice cooker.

A stay-home lazy Sunday? Nope! The kids had other plans. We were out the door as soon as the stew was cooked and came back a few hours later to a warm and homey meal.

      Lol. Seems like I’m hungry too. Rainy outside, cold office. Makes me want a warm comforting bowl of stew. 🙂
