Karl’s Mitzvah Beef Stew

My neighbors are taking care of one of their aged mothers. I went to speak with the wife and when she came to the door it was obvious that she as was exhausted. She was in clear need of a  mitzvah.

Karl’s Guinness Beef Stew

I decided to do a beef stew for my Sunday’s dinner. I have posted a beef Bourguignon before, so I wanted to do something different this time. Many cuisines have some form of beef stews, so there are numerous potential recipes from which to choose. Flipping through the possibilities, I finally settled on a Irish Guinness based stew.

Karl’s Spanish Style Oxtails

I have been craving oxtails recently. I do not make them very often, because of Jan’s dietary restrictions and because, for the same reason, they are not exactly a health food—they are very fatty. One way to reduce the fat is to make them the day before, skim off the congealed lard, and reheat them the next day.

Karl’s Cola de Buey en Chile Rojo (Oxtails in Red Chile Sauce)

I am making chili beans for Jan, but son-in-law Chris, is on a super low starch diet. I decided that I would make a beef chile for him (OK, it is for me too, I admit it). Normally I would use beef chuck for making carne con chili rojo. However, Chris really likes oxtail and I think this would go really well. For some reason, my recipe for Moroccan Oxtail is one of the most popular pages on my blog, so I do not think he is alone in this preference.

Karl’s Moroccan Oxtail Tajine

Adapted from a recipe by Mamatkamal El Mary K

This week is Chris’ Birthday. Myr is taking him out for steak on Saturday, so she wants something heavy on the vegetables. Jan really liked the Chicken Cassablanca I made last week, so she wants a North African tajine (tu-jeen). I have some French green lentils that I have wanted to try out (A Taste of History idea). Chris (who just landed from a trip to Germany) got in the last word, he wants oxtails. This I can work with.
