2 tbsp olive oil

½ lb stew beef

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp)

1 cup water

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1½ cups heavy cream, divided

1 tsp pepper

2 tsp prepared horseradish

⅔ cup mushrooms, sliced (5 ounces)

½ lb angel hair pasta

2 tbsp butter

1 tbsp flour

½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 oz)

½ cup pepper jack cheese, shredded (2 oz)

 

Heavy olive oil in a large heavy skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Dry stew beef on paper towels and add to hot oil. Brown on all sides and remove from pan.

Add onion and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Push onion to the sides of the pan to make a well. Add garlic to well and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add beef back to pan, add water and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to simmer, cover and turn heat to low. Simmer for 2½ hours. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Stir in 1 cup cream, pepper, horseradish and mushrooms.

Heat 4 quarts of water to boiling. Add angel hair and cook for 4 minutes or until “al dente”. Drain well but don’t rinse. Toss with beef mixture and pour into an 8 cup covered casserole dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour and bring to simmer, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining cream and bring back to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add cheeses, stirring until they are melted.

Spread cheese sauce over the top of the casserole. Cover and bake in a preheated 350℉ oven for 20 minutes. Remove cover and bake for 10 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160℉.

Let the casserole rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Hack: Do you know that you can freeze fresh ginger root? Grating it in its frozen state is easier than grating it fresh and, if you choose organic ginger, you don’t have to peel it! Simply place it in a sealed freezer bag or container and pop it in the freezer.

Hack: Chop leftover green onions and freeze in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use.
