Beef. Sweet Potatoes. Onions. Pomegranate juice?
I still have POM juice in my fridge, somehow. I wanted to make stew but I was wishing I had some wine to deglaze the pan – voila, a use for the POM. Well, some of it at least.
After the weekend I had of eating lots of wonderful fresh, local foods it was great to get back home and make something with our own local foods. The beef is from Richardson Farms, and the sweet potatoes came in our CSA box from Johnson’s Backyard Garden. I’m still jealous of the California markets, but after living in the upper Midwest for 25 years I know how lucky I am to have a year-round market and CSA program.
I used a CrockPot but this can certainly simmer in a stockpot over low heat instead.
