Serve this stew with creamy mashed potatoes or crusty Italian bread. The beef stock gives a rich meaty flavour to the oyster mushrooms and the sauce.
For gift giving, pour the sauce into hot, sterilized preserving jars that lend a made-with-love look and show off the sauce.
Mixing moistened bread crumbs into ground beef is a great way to keep the meat from drying out or shrinking as it's cooking. Use this technique for the juiciest meat loaves, meatballs and burgers you've ever tasted.
Serve with: Italian Bread — Caesar Salad
Serve with: Greens with Chive Dressing
If you like it hot, use hot Italian sausage. Spinach can substitute for the Swiss chard but heat just until wilted.
