making stew sunday. questions and tell me what you think

eatinphilly | Oct 19, 2012 10:04 AM

ok so i'm making stew round and here's what i'm thinking let me know if you'd add anything. let me know if this is going to be ok.

i have a round roast i'm going to dry brine it for 24 hours in salt and brown sugar
then i'm going to cut it up into smaller pieces dredge in flour and sear it on a pan.
pour roux in pan.
put all the vegetables (carrots, potatoes, turnips, parsnips) in the pan and turn it on.

go to sleep for about 6 hours. wake up.
boil soaked kidney beans for 10mins and then put in stew
put soaked split peas in stew.

wait 3 more hours.


- will brining the beef affect the firmness of the beans?
- when should i put the potatoes and vegetables, is the beginning is fine?
- at what point should i put the peas in?
-should i put in beans at the beginning?
-at what point am i overcooking the meat?
