It’s time – Get Your Chef On Challenge is live!I had a difficult time with this challenge, you see, I’m not a beer drinker. I made beer bread once and had to through it out. This time I thought I go with some rich in flavor to mask the beer flavor. I chose this stew with tomato paste and beef bouillon and a medley of other flavors.
It was pleased with the way it tasted. I cooked it low and slow for a couple of hours. It had a rich deep flavor and I couldn’t taste beer. You could substitute any root vegetable, but I prefer potatoes and carrots, I’m just a classic stew type gal…except for the beer part! To be honest with you, I thought it was even better the second day. If you’re not a beer drinker, not to worry, you won’t even know it’s in there. I couldn’t smell it. I couldn’t taste it. You could always substitute beef stock for the beer.
