“My favorite stew recipe, from "Cold Weather Cooking, " by Sarah Leah Chase (one of the authors of Silver Palate) has a tomato based sauce, rounded out with mustard, spices, and a touch of brown sugar. You don't brown the meat first, so it's fast and doesn't make a mess! The secret is baking for several hours at a very low temperature.”
