Last night I made Pioneer Woman‘s Beef Stew with Mushrooms. And it ROCKED.

So here’s the interesting part. Right now, at the SPAR around the corner, beef goulash sells for R59.99, while corned beef sells for R49.99. It seems like a sin to cut a hunk of meat into little cubes, but it’s cheaper, so what the hell.

I knew that the corned beef would make the dish very salty, so I didn’t add any additional salt.

Used 750ml of meat stock that I’d cooked a few months ago — this is the kind of nom you miss out on if you feed the bones to the family dog :-)

Highly recommended.
