I took my unbelievable classic beef stew recipe.

How to freeze pureed rutabaga rinse the peeled rutabaga and cut into large chunks put the rutabaga chunks in a large stockpot or saucepan and cover with water add about 1 tablespoon of salt for each gallon of water bring to a boil over high heat cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium low.

This recipe is versatile as well add a cup of sliced parsnips or diced rutabaga to the stew along with the potatoes or add about a 1 2 cup of sliced celery or sliced sauteed mushrooms if you choose to add more tender vegetables like frozen thawed peas or cut green beans add them about a half hour before the stew is ready.

And if you don rsquo t have a crock pot try this irish lamb stew with potatoes the recipe is similar but it rsquo s cooked on the stovetop lamb casserole in the slow cooker we do love lamb and i try to cook it as often as possible which is not the easiest task because lamb is not the most popular kind of meat in germany hence it rsquo s not always.
