Whale Meat Stew
Note: Whale meat is used to feed the indigenous people and it is a way of life here. Do not post anything negative on here. If you don't like what you have read, then turn away.
1 - 1 1/2 pounds of Whale Meat
3 - 4 large potatoes (peeled and cut into medium sized squares)
3 - 4 large carrots (peeled and sliced )
1 medium onion (peeled and sliced)
2 shallots (peeled and sliced
1 cup sweet peas
1 cup green beans
1 cup corn
1 jar of sliced mushrooms
12 cups beef broth
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
Cut whale meat in medium sized pieces. Season whale meat with garlic seasoning and then flour lightly.
Braise cut up meat on both sides till lightly browned. Remove from pan.
Saute mushrooms, onion, shallots till onions are slightly translucent.
Pour a small amount of Sherry into the pan to deglaze. Pour all of the beef broth into the pot. Bring to boil. Add the Whale meat and carrots and potatoes to the broth. Bring back to boil. Turn down to medium heat and cook for about 30 minutes. Add all of the rest of the vegetables into the pot and continue to cook on a lower heat until the stew has thickened.
Once thickened serve in bowls with garlic bread or some other bread. My husband said it was tasty but different too. It was my first time making stew to begin with so it will probably take more than once to get it right.
