I was lucky enough to snag a bowl of Andrew’s beef & lamb stew this past week. He always uses nice quality, grass-fed/organic meat so I’d recommend it for this recipe as well. Don’t shortchange yourself with buying cheap cuts, the ingredients are so simple that you’ll want the flavor of the meat shine through.
Also, Andrew and I looked up the word “unctuous”. While I’ve definitely seen it used positively when talking about food to mean “rich, and fatty”, dictionary.com says that the word gives a negative connotation, because it means “smooth and greasy in texture or appearance”. Have I been using the word incorrectly all these years???
Anyway, the recipe is as follows…
