In Argentina, a carbonada criolla is a beautiful beef stew served in a cooked pumpkin.
Today, I had no time to fiddle with a pumpkin, and they’re out of season. So Ye Olde Crock Pot it was. Also, instead of braising the meat in beer, I used some left-over white wine and one can (gasp, I didn’t make it myself) of beef broth, the low sodium variety.
When done, it’s excellent served over brown rice, polenta or potatoes.
Hummus is one of the easiest, most healthful snacks there is. Nearly surpassing salsa and guacamole...
