Bendanso Stu (Okra Stew)
Okra (aka "lady’s finger") is stewed gently in coconut milk and basic spices — resulting in a curry that is delicately flavored. Do note that the flavor of coconut milk is very dominant here. This curry teams up very well with fried fish and white rice. I am sure it will taste great with brown (or red) boiled rice as well.

Vegan Harvest Vegetable Stew
This vegan vegetable stew was also a huge success at the recent Feeding the 5000 event in Portland, Maine. Taste-wise, it's hot, thick, eclectic, and very spicy — without being picante.

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.

Irish beef and Guinness stew
  This St. Patrick’s Day, you can either: (A) Squeeze yourself into an “Irish pub” crammed wall-to-wall with drunk people drinking green beer (B) Drink alone with a bottle of your local liquor store’s finest Irish whiskey (C) Make this incredibly comforting stew, invite some good friends over, pour pints of Guinness, and eat well until the leprechauns come home. This St. Patrick’s, I propose you don’t go to a bar unless you’re actually in Ireland. I propose you don’t wear beads or shamrocks. I say  you celebrate the occasion with good food, friends and family. I say you don’t drink anything green. Absolutely not this concoction. Start with some quality stew beef like beef chuck. But not too lean. You’ll want lovely lines of fat well marbled throughout the meat. Add some carrots and potatoes, either Russet or new potatoes. I like to keep my vegetables in big, hearty chunks so they don’t dissolve into mush. I also add them only in the last 75 minutes of the braising. Aromatics like thyme, caraway seeds, bay leaves and garlic round out the flavors. As with most braises, this is wonderful on the first day, but even better on the second. This St. Paddy’s Day, make this and you won’t need to worry about spilled beer on your shoes. Unless your dinners are a lot more interesting than mine.

Flaked Bacalao Stew
“My tía Carmen made a salted codfish (bacalao) stew with canned tomatoes that was so tasty, I’d ask her to send me back to Connecticut with a container of it so I could enjoy it during the week. I always use fresh produce when I can, because it has a brighter flavor than canned. So this version uses fresh tomatoes. Serve it over brown rice or in crisp lettuce leaves.” — Angelo Sosa, co-author of Healthy Latin Eating, Our Favorite Family Recipes Remixed

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.

Oysters
"Oysters, of course, are never 'stewed,' which means prolonged cooking, they are merely heated and added to the hot liquid, usually milk. A simple stew would consist in heating oysters in their own strained liquor with water added to make 'enough.'" — Charles Browne
