I usually just do the grilling at the house but periodically I will cook a beef and vegetable stew. It’s not from a secret passed down recipe, it’s basically throwing whatever leftover sh!# we have in the house that the wife couldn’t use or is about to expire in a large tub and cooking it a while. It usually turns out ok but I am looking for a new recipe.

I will add that my wife and kids don’t dig spice too much. Also, I usually have around 1 hour of prep time (usually the night before). But I can extend that if needed.

I’m mainly looking for something along the lines of what I make but more savory and something you bake or buy bread with to mop up the juice. I am open to all recipes and will try them all as long as they aren’t spicy (I would LOVE spicy stew but they literally won’t even touch it). Do keep in mind we live in Mississippi and do not have a lot of access to health food stores (I asked my grocer if he carried truffle butter and he asked if it was for cupcakes or something...)

Ummm, truffle butter? Are you sure that's what you needed? You can make that at home, just ask Nicki Minaj.

Make it with wine: https://www.brit.co/julia-childs-boeuf-bourguignon/

Or make it with beer: https://thehungrybelgian.com/2013/07/05/flemish-beef-stew/

The first with mashed taters, the second over fries, of course. I usually say any good Belgian dark beer (I used Westvleteren the last time I made it; Gouden Carolus is my favorite) but I've seen people make it with Duvel, Kwak or even a nice rich Porter and it comes out good.

Pork with a nice tart cherry lambic is great, too, for a non-beef option.
