I Need . . .

Well, lots of things actually, but right now in particular I'd like a good stew recipe. I made Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots tonight and it was very good, but way too soupy for stew. The only ways I can think to make the sauce thicker would be to flour the beef before browning or make a roux after removing it from the oven and defating (is that a word?) and straining the cooking liquid.

In any case, if anyone can recommend a nice hearty beef stew recipe I'd love to try it!

By way -- for those dear readers that made my turkey pot pie with Thanksgiving leftovers last year, you still have a couple days to make the best-ever turkey stock in preparation for gravy makin' on Thursday. I'm headed to the store tomorrow for my 6 pounds of turkey parts!

I made this beef stew from Food Network and it got rave reviews at my house! Great flavor. I made a different beer bread recipe, however.

Yum! I am definitely going to have to try that one out.
