Beef Stew with Coconut Milk


A few days ago I bought some really good-looking organic, pasture raised beef and I thought to make a stew with it. Stews are always a quick, good lunch idea. You can make a big pot and freeze what you don’t eat the first serving. That is always a great idea as my sweet-pie likes to bring some homemade food to work for dinner.


Things with me are, that I buy meat, think about a stew but forget to buy all the rest. So nearly every time when I cook I have to improvise. Same with the stew. So: what is in the fridge? Oh, the eggplant has to be used. Great, in a stew maybe a little delicate but there is no other vegetable here. I had diced tomatoes and potatoes which are always perfect in a stew.

A stew is also a great lunch/dinner because it is so easy to cook: you just have to put the ingredients one after the other in one and the same pot and let it cook for an hour or so.

I like to do the stews the afternoon before I want to eat them. They stay overnight (I personally prefer out of the fridge as the taste to me seems to be better than cooling it so drastically down and stop all the processing) and get better in taste and texture. I usually don’t finish them cooking, so I have them again on the stove for an additional 20 minutes or so. I think the flavor is ’rounder’ this way.

How do you like stews? What kind of stews do you prepare? And are they seasonally for you? I don’t like stews in summer for example, they are more a cold-weather-dish to me.

Enjoy it!
