A bit ambitious?

My dear hubby has been bugging me about making beef stew, beef pie after my chicken pie last Saturday. So I had to surf the web to find recipes that will suit our cooking. There are just hundreds of recipes in the world wide web free for all! Finally, we settle on a recipe amongst so many of them-Beef, Mushroom & Red Wine Pie. We discussed on the ingredients to be used. Since he was on leave today, he went to buy all the necessary ingredients, and came up with a almost-there beef "stew", good enough to eat and put in a pie dough. Overall, we concluded that the effort was worth it, the smell was good, but the taste a little bland. Could be due to the beef stock and the red wine used. For the next round, we will probably get better red wine and boil our own beef stock! Overall, he was a bit ambitious, but I think for the effort and the courage, he deserved a 85% from me! ;)

Your beef stew looks delicious! You know what's funny? I really don't care for beef, but I LOVE beef stew. There's so much depth to it with the red wine and beef flavors mixing together; I can't resist it!

Hi Elyse,
I agree totally with you. The red wine mixed with the beef, is really heavenly! I've tried beef pies in Australia and it's just PERFECT! Chunks of beef, hint of red wine... What else can I ask for??

Hi Aran,
This is not perfect yet. Wait till we perfect the taste, then maybe, it'll be my comfort food. :)

Hi Grace,
For him, it's just a moment of "fun". I doubt his cooking can be sustained! :p Heehee...
