Classic Beef Stew

Be a champion in the kitchen with these hearty, aromatic meals

Stewing over what to prepare for that crowd of hungry, howling, handkerchief-twirling football fanatics on Super Bowl Sunday? Are you searching for a new outlet to test your culinary capabilities during those countless college bowl games?

Call an audible from the ordinary and try something that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning gridiron gurus, and fill your home with flavors that’ll keep them coming back for more.

Chef Michael Ollier with the Certified Angus Beef ® brand recommends a thick, meaty beef stew, Cincinnati-Style Chili or Beer Chili as perfect remedies for famished football fans. These favorites are the perfect way to enjoy a “Souper” Bowl with a crowd.

Ollier says the key to becoming team captain in your kitchen is to start with the best product available. Just as with its steaks, Certified Angus Beef ® brand ground chuck, ground round and ground sirloin all must meet the brand’s 10 quality specifications. Marbling, the little white flecks within the meat, is what gives beef its flavor, tenderness and juiciness.

“Between their great flavor and hearty aroma, these dishes are the perfect choice for winter get-togethers,” said Ollier. “They’ll warm you inside and out, and win over your friends and family.”
