I'm 2 hours in to the meat braise at the moment.

Modifying the recipe by reducing the amount of onions, and adding celery and green onion.

Ron and Fez turned me on to Alton Brown years ago in an interview, and Alton Brown turned me onto cooking. I never knew how great it could be.

It was fucking fantastic. At the end, I poured in a half carton of beef stock to give some more liquid to it. One bowl left, and that will be given to a friend tomorrow.

It was alot of work, but it was honestly the best beef stew I have ever eaten.

The best things take time but the payoff is worth it.

I do the same thing with the paprika when I make beef stew - it's basically like marinating it in paprika. Everything else I put in is essentially the same too (no tomato though, just doesn't sound right). Cant wait to try out that braising method one of these days.

To those who made this, did you add the full amount of apple cider vinegar?

Thanks for sparing me from the video. Who watches this annoying asshat? Say "uh" one more time, you pig-nosed fuck.
You go to Hell. You go to Hell and you die. Alton is God you pigfucker.

Making another batch tomorrow. Adding in half a brisket along with approximately double the amount of beef back ribs for a nice triple batch. This should ensure there will be leftovers this time!

I already cooked the brisket tonight as per the usual way, after cutting it up into 2" X 2" cubes and browning just as I did the ribs. That way I will just have the ribs to do tomorrow and the final assembly.

Since I have all 14 seasons of Good Eats, I have been going back and watching several of them and have been trying out other recipes. What, you ask? Well that's a different post....

I've used his turkey brine/baby back ribs/leek soup/pizza dough recipes many times and everything I've ever made of his has come out very good.
