Keeping it going: Beef Stew with Shiitake Mushrooms post-mortem

Posted: January 27th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: family dinner meals, shit kickrs | Comments Off on Keeping it going: Beef Stew with Shiitake Mushrooms post-mortem

I followed this recipe at epicurious, obvs, but with a couple of contributions from the reviews:

  • substitute some of the beef stock for a couple cans of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup, which is apparently everyone’s secret beef stew ingredient.
  • I substituted baby pattypan squash for butternut because what the fuck is baby pattypan squash
  • I also cut down on the total amount of squash because I didn’t want it to be about the squash, you know?  Like, “Oh, this beef stew has squash in it” and then I have to be like, “Yes, it does,” and then we all just sit there looking at each other.  In the end the squash melts into the essence of squash, and I bet you didn’t even know there was squash in it, which I consider to be an enormous personal victory.
  • I also cut down a little on the mushrooms because jesus christ
  • a shiraz does work pretty well as the red wine for this
  • I liked it that night, but it is, as promised, at least twice as good the second day, except the mushrooms were really rubbery
And then I made brownies, as per usual, but I saw the peppermint extract when I was getting the vanilla out and I was like, “ok” and I put in a teaspoon.  That’s why you were so refreshed after dinner.
I was thinking about those brownies as I lay awake early this morning and I was contemplating how much butter goes into them–a quantity so large you’d never guess it–and in my mind I could taste the brownies but they just tasted like butter, and I don’t think I’m going to make them anymore.
In summation:
