Chicken Stew With Beer
This recipe comes from Vikingars Gästabud (The Viking Feast), and is for four
servings.
Ingredients
1 chicken, about 2 to 2-1/2 lbs.
3-4 carrots
3 yellow onions
1 turnip, about 1 lb.
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash black pepper
Thyme
6-8 whole allspice
1 bottle (12 oz) dark beer
Chop the chicken into 8 pieces. Peel and cut the vegetables into pieces. Fry the chicken in
butter, about 5 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper and place in a pot. Add the
vegetables, thyme, allspice and beer. Let boil for about 15 minutes or until vegetables are
tender. Serve the dish with bread. What a Face

So substitute something else - potatoes maybe? Like baby red potatoes so you don't have to peel them and they won't fall apart like mashed potatoes if you cook them too long. Just be aware that they may absorb more beer flavor than the other stuff.

Obviously the best substitute for the turnips would be some steak cubes.

with chicken? are you sure? lol, I guess. Marinade them in beer overnight, and be sure to brown them before just throwing them in there like you would the turnips.

I'm a carnivore. Meat is good with anything. Potatoes, more meat, mac and cheese, more meat, ... well, you get the drift

meat huh? try this one...

Meat Pasty

pie crust dough (not premade pie crust in a pan)
1 lb ground beef
1lb ground sasuage
1/2lb lamb cubes (you could use steak...)
1 large yellow onion cubed
1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can chicken or beef broth
flour
salt,pepper - whatever spices smell good

cook all meat and vegetables completely. add broth, reduce until almost completely gone. add a light dusting of flour and stir to thicken. form dough into golf ball sized pieces and roll each out to about 1/4 in thick. Place enough filling to make it full, but not so much that you cant close it. using a little bit of water on your finger, go around the edge of the dough. fold dough over filling and press firmly to seal. You can bake these at 350 for about half an hour, or you can deep fry them until golden brown. any leftover filling just add a bit of water and a little bit more flour to make a kind of gravy to pour over the cooked pasty. I can guarantee that if you eat 2, you will be uncomfortably stuffed.

My favorite meat dish is a Guiness Steak Pie (not viking but irish). I'm pretty sure vikings proably had something close. It's alchol and meat their specialty. It's simple; soak beef steak strips, and bacon in guiness over night and saute with oinions, use the juice to make a raisen gravy. Pour the gravy over it in a pie crust and bake it till the smell takes over the kitchen. I think it is amazing. I cook like my great great grandma sorry for the general reciept.
