Ouch.

I don't really have any decent beef-stew recipes, none of the ones I have were developed by somebody who cares about really tender beef.

But we have a killer lamb tagine recipe, which was published by the Communists at the New York Times.

 I discovered that it *is* possible to make popcorn on an electric stove; you just need to have a pot with a fairly thick bottom and put it back down on the coil between intermittent shakes.

It is a Whirley-Pop, you may purchase these at retail stores for about $20, they work great.

I recently made an awesome sweet and sour brisket in the crockpot. At the moment, I have a large roast cooking in there with carrots, onions, garlic, rosemary, wine, salt, pepper, broth, worcestershire sauce, etc... It's making the house smell really good.

Dear lord, Aahz, that sounds good!

And, um, IGgy....I know that jet way was cold, but you do know it's actually 2018 now?  :-)

And it made truly excellent gravy too.

When I posted that message I was in a time zone that was 336 hours behind GMT. Or something like that. And I admit I cheated on the stew by using a seasoning packet. However, I would never "just throw everything in the pot and turn it on" as the instructions suggest. I coated the meat in flour and browned it in a pan, then deglazed the pan with some red wine.

And pretty much any meat will be tender if you cook it in a crock pot for eight hours.

For popcorn: a two quart saucepan with a sturdy bottom seems to work just fine, and as pre-JTS Alton Brown would have pointed out, a dedicated popcorn pot is a unitasker. It doesn't matter anymore though, since my period of imprisonment with electric burners ended 14 months ago.

Locally it is 18,000 seconds past UTC. Your butter dish is a unitasker, as are your paper towel holder, salt and pepper shakers.  Get over yourself and don't let TV celebrities run your life.  The Whirrly-pop works well on any type of stove.

I'm sure it does, but a heavy two quart saucepan works just as well and I already own it.
