Clay Douglass and his 104th cooking recipe, the Old Style Meat Stew, great when weather starts to cool.
Ingredients: 1 kg veal meat cut in cubes, 2 medium size onions sliced, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 carrots, 2 celery, 2 leeks. 1 liter of water, 1 kg potatoes, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, salt and pepper t taste.
Instructions: First fry meat with the olive oil until seared on both sides. Then add the onions and cover so it stews gently for a few minutes. Cut the vegetables in cubes and add to the saucepan. Add the water with salt and pepper to taste. Cover the saucepan and after it starts to boil simmer in low heat for approximately an hour. Add the potatoes in thick wedges after 40 minutes of simmering. Add the fresh basil before serving.
