In this article I taste an inexpensive California wine from the recently deceased wine giant Robert Mondavi who to a large extent put California on the international wine map. If you really want to become a wine professional consider the Robert Mondavi Institute (RMI) for Wine and Food Science at the University of California, Davis. We are too old for that sort of thing but not too old to enjoy his wine, at least in this price range. One day we may taste one of his $100 Cabernet Sauvignons, but we won't be reporting on it here. For the time being let's see how stroganoff beef the company's wine does. By the way, you may be able to find this wine in the United States for considerably less than $10.
You have to be very creative in the kitchen so that you don't miss out on making this tasty meal. You can cook a easy beef stroganoff slow cooker on a low budget by using a cheaper cut such as chuck roast. This cut of meat will be tougher than the more expensive ones but you can easily work around the problem by increasing the cooking time slightly and browning the meat well before you add the sour cream. You can even pressure cook the meat in a bit of broth before you add the sour cream. The resultant meal will be delicious and tender. Pressure cooking the meat will also help you use less cooking fuel. You could also reduce the amount of meat and increase the amount of mushrooms in order to reduce the cost.
russian stew is the International Year of Quinoa as declared by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. Most grains contain a small amount of protein, but quinoa (technically a seed) contains more than 8 grams per cup, including all nine essential amino acids. Try quinoa as a breakfast cereal in place of oatmeal or include it in a soup or vegetarian chili.
The beef stew, the chicken soup, and many other comfort foods prepared today as a result of this storm was, no doubt, a pleasant distraction. For many an escape. With bellies filled and quality time spent with the people we love, days like these can be pleasant memories for years to come. When is there ever anything so wrong outside when there is beef stew on the table inside? Brown the beef, chop the carrots and onions, dice the potatoes, and add the love. In fact, for many, love is the first ingredient.
