My Organic Red Stew

7 September 2007

Red Stew

Every winter, I crave meaty stews. I make it once a week. Usually I just throw some meat and whatever vegetables I have lying around into a pot, and magic happens. So yummy.

Today I thought I’d make a stew with a colour theme. I’ve always been a strong believer in eating coloured vegetables – especially the RED / PURPLE ones, for a good dose of phytochemicals and antioxidants.

I decided to go all the way and make it completely organic – that way, I could feel extra happy that it wasn’t laced with bug spray.

Red Stew Recipe 

2 medium red onions, diced
1 large red capsicum, diced
1 medium egg plant, diced
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 cup of vegetable stock
400g of lean beef, diced
400g can of red kidney beans
salt and pepper

I threw everything into a pressure cooker for 15 minutes, and damn it tasted SO GOOD with rice.
