A Warm Stew For Two

With the weather being cold and rainy, us matchmakers at Select Introductions wanted to gift our clientele with a lovely beef stew recipe for two. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1-1/2 cups dry red wine or beef broth, divided

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

2-1/2 cups beef broth, divided

2 small potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch slices

1 cup sliced baby portobello mushrooms

2 fresh thyme sprigs

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons cornstarch

DIRECTIONS

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 1 cup wine or broth, lemon juice, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

Drain and discard marinade. In a large saucepan, brown beef in oil. Remove meat and set aside. In the same pan, saute onion and garlic until tender. Add 2 cups beef broth and remaining wine. Return meat to pan.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, thyme and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until vegetables and beef are tender. Discard thyme sprigs.

In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining beef broth until smooth. Gradually stir into stew. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
