A couple weeks ago, I was craving some comfort food. I wanted to make the stew my Mom made me, when I was young, and still makes to this day as well. It’s a simple stew made up of white kidney beans, meat, red bell peppers, onions and tomatoes. My Mom always uses small chunks of stewing beef in her recipe. I didn’t have any, but I did have lean ground beef on hand, so I browned it before putting it in the Crock Pot. I then added the dry white kidney beans, red bell peppers, onions, red pepper flakes and diced tomatoes. Added chicken broth (until just covered), salt and pepper before cooking it on low for 8 hours. It turned out perfect!! I served it over rice, the way I’m used to eating it. Will definitely make it again soon, now that I know how to cook it myself. My Mom was impressed 🙂 Below is a recipe that I used as a reference, and if you’re interested, you can too.
Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂
