What's For dinner is a community diary published every Saturday night at 4:30PDT/7:30EDT. We talk about food, trade recipes and what not.


1 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 pounds boneless beef stew meat (such as chuck), cut into 1 inch cubes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium white onion, finely chopped
4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
2 habanero chilies, seeded and minced
2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
1/4 cup rum
2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, preferably fire roasted
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons steak sauce, such as A-1
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 cups cooked long-grain white rice
Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 300°F. Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over high heat until smoking. Season beef with salt and pepper. Add beef to pan and cook without moving until well-browned on one side, about 6 minutes. Stir to loosen meat, and add onions and carrots. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, reduce heat to medium and add habaneros, garlic and rum. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes before adding chicken broth, allspice, cinnamon, hot pepper sauce, thyme, bay leaves, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, tomatoes, soy sauce, and steak sauce.

Return to a boil, cover and transfer to oven. Continue cooking until meat is tear-apart-tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 1/2 hours longer.

When stew is done, remove from oven and discard thyme sprigs and bay leaves. If stew is not thick enough, reduce over the stovetop until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately with rice.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
