Signature Series: Stews
For many, it’s been a long, brutal winter. Heat up your cold-weather menus with these hearty stews. As part of our continuing Signature Series, we asked operators to share some of their popular stew dishes.
Sri Lankan Black Tea Braised Sirloin Beef Stew - Southern Foodservice Management at Robert Bosch LLC., Broadview, Ill.
“Think that loose leaf tea in your operation can only be steeped? Think again,” says Iraj Fernando, executive chef at Robert Bosch LLC., managed by Southern Foodservice Management. “Not only do they impart flavor and add nutrition, tea marinades also help make the meat more tender, breaking down muscle tissue and resulting in more succulent and juicier meat,” Fernando shares. Prepared separately, hearty root vegetables provide a satisfying balance to this rich stew. Serve with roasted vegetables or over turmeric-spiced potatoes for a global flair.
