This recipe was brought in by Jonas in Sweden.
"Eat up your stew!" as inspired by the game Simon the Sorceror. Hopefully
this stew won't make you throw up...
||Lean smoked bacon or ham
|1 - 2
||or a small piece of root celery
||Fresh is even better if you can get it
||Or any other pale beer
||Vegetable or red meat
Melt the margarine in a saucepan and add the diced pork and bacon. Chop
up the onion and leek and add to the meat, together with the crushed garlic,
and leave to cook for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile chop up the carrot, parsnip,
pepper and celery. Add to the meat and pour over the beer and stock. Throw
in the herbs (if you can be bothered the best way to do it is to tie the
herbs together in a "boquet garni" and take them out after 20 minutes,
usually I just throw them in as they are...). Bring to the boil and simmer
for about an hour. Mix a tablespoon of cornflour with some water and stir
into the stew just before serving to thicken it up.
Serve with mashed or jacket potatoes. You can use whatever vegetables you
happen to have around (that's how this recipe originated)
