Why does my beef stew meat taste like liver?

fayehess | Jan 6, 2008 06:38 AM

I bought some pretty pricey, " obe organic beef stew cut", with no other description of what cut it was. I ignorantly thought that because of the high price, the cut would be a good one. Instead, after adding a nice Sangiovese wine, and slowly cooked onions and herbs, and waiting a good two hours over a low simmer, the meat tasted like liver. It also went from tough to dried out. There was always enough liquid in the pan and the pan was covered with the lid ever so slightly ajar.
