Stewed Recipe Ideas

Stewed recipes are those which are cooked at a simmer but are creating a single dish with a broth or sauce and the meant and/or vegetables within. It is cooked with a single heat source below compared to a casserole which is cooked in an oven.

Although a recipe uses the stewing method, it doesn’t;t mean that it will be called a stew. Chili, sloppy joes, bourguignon, curries, and stroganoff are all stewed.

When an item is being stewed, this is done at a gentle simmer, not at a boil. Boiling is more for soups which also have a lot more liquid than that found when stewing.
