The art of stew

Although they are more common during the Fall and Winter seasons, meat stews are delicious all the time and can be very healthy.  Filled with tender cubes of meat and hearty vegetables, stews (beef, chicken, pork, a mix of all the meats…) are a staple dish you should have as part of your meal prep plan. 

 

A stew has been described as an assortment of foods cooked in liquid within a container with a lid. The word “stew” is said to come from the old French word estuier, meaning to enclose. Most cultural groups have created a recipe for a special stew, and there are as many versions of them as there are cooks to make them.

 

While stew is pretty basic, and not many changes need to be made to make it healthy, especially with chicken, here is a tip to make it a bit better: use a lean cut of meat and trim the fat, add lots of vegetables and add broth that has no salt. 

 

Stews are commonly regarded as “comfort” foods, everyday dishes served to family or close friends in an intimate setting. So, head to our recipe section and look for a stew recipe. We would also like you to share your own creations with us. We will publish them on our recipe section.
