This dish was so delicious, especially the broth. We served it with soba noodles. Absolutely loved it.
Savory, goodness! Served with crusty French bread, I think noodles would get in the way of all that deliciousness;-)
Wonderful complexity to the broth, spicy from the chile paste, sweet from the sugar and cinnamon, salty from the soy sauce. The vegetables are tender to perfection, and the spinach added a needed fresh night to keep the stew from being too heavy. Serve with French bread rolls.
My husband and I just made this tonight! It's delicious! Totally worth the effort that it takes to make.
I have made this several times over the years. I have served it with rice or wide rice noodles (husband can't have gluten). It is even better the second day.
My husband and I love this stew, served with whole wheat linguine or Chinese soba noodles, whichever is on hand. I make it several times in the winter, and my husband always asks for it when he has a cold! I like to use the crockpot, time permitting - or if I am doing it on the stove top, I always allow an extra half-hour or so to get the stew meat tender. Freezes well, too!
This is fantastic. The flavor is wonderful - just be sure to brown the meat well. We've served it with tiny shells, udon, or linguine. All work well.
