I was trying to decide what to cook today and saw a couple packs of cut-up chain and trimmings from the last couple beef loins I trimmed out in the freezer and I decided to cook up a pot of beef stew.

chunked meat, potatoes, baby carrots, onion, and some celery.

browning the meat using just salt & pepper for now

after the meat was browned, I removed it from the pan and added about 1 Tbls of lard to melt in with the meat dripping. Then added 1 Tbls flour and made a dark roux. Then slowly added 1 cup of water to make a stock, then added the garlic and rest of my spices and brought it to a boil, then turned it down and added 2 1/2 cups more water and let it simmer for a few minutes.

Everything mixed into the slow cooker pot for a nice long slow cook.

Hmmmmm. wonder if I can talk Pam into making some biscuits or rolls to go with this.:drooling:

Well, I guess I could, :tap: but I'm not sure what wine to serve with it. A Burgundy, maybe?????:D:roflmaoha0:

I was really just thinking about a big bowl and a cold beer.:drooling:

Don't thinkg it's gonna matter... You could serve it in a paper cup and I'd bet it would still be good eats!

Chain meat is the extra meat that is trimmed off of a beef loin. Really tender, sort of like little bites of Filet Mignon.
