Stews And Slow Cooking

June 23, 2017
This is my first 2009 ten dollar wine review. I took advantage of the holiday season to resume my reviews of pricier French and German wines. I have been drinking Canadian wine for decades and it has been getting better over the years. But I have never reviewed a Canadian wine until now. Even if the wine proves to be a disaster, I'll be reviewing more. But I can't promise you when.

If you're an urbanite or someone who is used to prepared food like frozen dinners or grab-and-go restaurant meals easy beef stew you might want to stick with freeze dried meals or MREs.



Barbeque Pork Cha siu this is the pork that is cut up at a barbeque shop you know simple beef stew the ones where you see a chinese butcher with a giant cleaver and chunks of animal hanging from hooks that you can see through a glass window It is red in color and you will find this all over Hong Kong. Try it on the streets, try it in the malls, try it in the restaurants.

Eating in the chow hall is a lot like being back in your high school cafeteria. You will wait in line, get a plastic tray and utensils and then be given your ration. Unless you are in a Federal Prison Camp, you will not be permitted to return for a second helping.

Sensational dry, red wine for a cold winter's day. Perfect companion for lamb chops, steak, cheese platter, Italian meatballs and pasta dishes. Great wine to take the chill off of any crowd this winter. Tignanello, produced by Antinori, is one of Italy's "mythical" wines. 2004 was a great vintage, but some say 2005 is even better. Prepare your palette for an interesting ride this cold, winter's day.

The Sangiovese red grape got its name from "sanguis Jovis" or "blood of Jupiter." Dating to pre-Roman times, Sangiovese is one of the two predominant red grapes in Italy, where it is extensively planted, mostly in the central and southern regions. Sangiovese is believed to have originated in Tuscany, where it dominates the landscape to this day. Serving wine and cheese before the meal? Check out Brunello di Montalcino. A perfect accompaniment for your winter buffet. Holds up and pairs nicely with heavier finger food as well. A perfect red wine for a cold, winter's day.

The final meal was simple easy crockpot beef stew and chicken meatballs slow cooked together with soft wheat. Now I tasted leather, chocolate, and pepper. The wine was more complex than can usually be expected in this price range. But at the end it was thin and somewhat sour. I tasted it with a high-quality, French style, very buttery and lemony lemon pie right out of the freezer. Get this, the wine tasted of cherries.

Because of the seemingly radical step we took to ensure this dog's survival, it wasn't something I discussed openly. Too many people out there feel that if a dog can't eat on his own, he's not meant to live. To them I say, "Phooey." The dog wanted to live, to survive and feel the hand of those who loved him rubbing his ears. But he couldn't eat. His spirit was willing and he would have done anything to please me, but this one thing he couldn't do. How then, was I to deny him the one thing I could do to help him?

Another tasty option for dessert is a Pot O' Gold Cupcake -- a rainbow-colored cupcake paired with gold chocolate coins. To create rainbow cupcakes, simply prepare a white cake mix and divide the batter easy beef stew on stove six small bowls. To create purple batter, add 9 red drops of food coloring and 6 blue drops of food coloring. To create the ideal blue, green and yellow shades, you will need 12 drops of each in the batter. For orange, add 12 yellow drops and 4 red drops. For Red, use 18 drops of food coloring. Layer the batter inside the baking cups and bake according to box instructions. After cooled and shortly before serving, add whipped cream icing to represent a cloud. Sit the cupcakes on a platter covered with gold chocolate coins.
