Usually when I make a stew I don’t follow the exact recipe, instead I like to play with the ingredients and I often use whatever I have in the refrigerator. This time I decided to do a meat stew that goes really well with polenta and pickles.
You can use any type of meat you want, or a combination. This is what I used for this particular time:
- 2 medium chopped onions
- 2 chicken breasts
- 2 sausages
- 1 piece of beef (about the size of a chicken breast)
- 6 ounces tomato paste (170 g)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
Cut chicken breasts and beef into small pieces, slice the sausage. Wilt onion in bacon or butter; add paprika, chicken, beef, sausage, and salt & pepper; let is brown (about 5-10 minutes). Add water, cover, and simmer until tender (about 45 minutes). Add tomato paste and let it boil for few more minutes while stirring. Serve warm with polenta (I also added some feta cheese on top) or mashed potatoes.
