Bison meat is known to cook faster than beef, and the best way to do it is low and slow, making it a great choice for a traditional stew recipe. Red wine and beef broth, flavored with simple aromatics like onion, carrots, celery, and garlic, is the perfect broth for tender bison brisket.

Stewed Tomatoes with Polenta
The beauty of heirloom tomatoes is that they’re so good they can be eaten raw, which is why I only stewed some of the tomatoes in this recipe. Ironically enough, I couldn’t find heirlooms at the store, so I didn’t feel as guilty about it. This is a very elegant dish that’s really easy to make. All it takes is marsala cooking wine. Bright, ripe heirloom cherry tomatoes are added at the end for a burst of freshness and color. Click here to see It's Time for a Cherry Tomato Fiesta — 11 Great Recipes.

Chicken and Rutabaga Stew
Rutabaga is a root vegetable that most people probably don't cook on a regular basis. I know this was my first time using the vegetable, which to me, looked like an overgrown turnip with brown skin. Not beautiful, I know, but I was curious to find out if it tasted better than it looked. It turned out to be an interesting departure from the stew standard — the potato. It's relatively mild in flavor and I left it a little bit of crunch to give the stew texture. All in all, I think it's a vegetable I'd like to try again — and the fact that it's dirt cheap is a plus, too.

Guinness Stew
 Rumor has it that when Arthur Guinness first signed the lease to an unused brewery in the St. James section of Dublin, he was so confident in his brew that he made a deal to own the space for 9,000 years. Centuries later, it is safe to say that it was a smart investment. Everyone can respect a decent pour of the black gold, but what your loved ones will really go wild for is how you infuse it with traditional peasant fare in this easy, hearty stew.
