I love using the woodstove for cooking. It is just a wonderful feeling knowing it doesn’t use any electricity and is an old trait going back to times gone by. I know that sounds corny. But this is such an useful idea and a great skill to know how to do. Maybe I should say, this is an idea that you should know that you can do. It is very easy and just something that you can do if the power is out and you need to cook on other than a range top.
This is just some leftover roast beef that I cut up and added to a large saucepan. Add some broth and let it simmer. I place my pot on the top corner of the stove and watch that it isn’t too hot. You want it to just simmer. I usually let it simmer for several hours and the broth cooks down. Eventually you end up with pieces of beef that are just fall-apart super tender. I have done this several times and it just makes the most tender pieces of beef to add to a stew, soup, shepherd’s pie, or other recipes.
Why not test out this useful idea and hone your skills for cooking on a woodstove? It is a practical, handy way to cook without a traditional range.
