“Hearty” Beef Stew… by Gloria
If you are anything like me, you know that going out to eat on Valentine’s Day can be totally overrated. In my experience, I always feel rushed and the pre-fixe menus hardly warrant the inflated V-day prices- but that’s just my opinion. This year, I decided to cook dinner for my love and spend an intimate evening at home with a nice bottle of wine. After all, the way to a guys heart is through his tummy! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!

Brown them in a pan with a bit of olive oil.
In a separate pot, sauté some onion and garlic.

Add browned beef
Let simmer for 1 ½ hours.
Add salt to taste
Add Carrots, potatoes and celery.
Let simmer for another ½ hour.
Boil fresh pasta (my favorite is fresh tagliolini)
Serve stew over pasta
