Great Stew Recipes

Wonderful Meals for Winter

When the temperature drops and snow starts to fall, there’s nothing better than a great pot of food cooking for a long time on the stove. That’s why soups and stews are so wonderful this time of year – and why stew is a great comfort food. What’s even better about those meals is that you can often use a very affordable cut of meat as the base. You’ll be cooking the meat for a long time, so a “tougher” piece of meat is going to be transformed by this method. Right now stew meat is on sale at Coborn’s and CobornsDelivers.com so you can really whip up a feast for very little money!

If you can’t decide what type of stew to make, check out this list of great stew recipes – covering everything from beef to chicken to lamb to seafood.
