GP Om Noms: Nightingale’s Skyrim Beef Stew

Living life as the famed Dragonborn of Skyrim can be quite the job. On your long journeys and perilous fights against many a Dragon and occasionally your pesky bear or wolf, the Dragonborn would tend to get quite famished. When I’m living life as the Dragonborn, I always enjoy making a nice steamy pot of Skyrim Beef Stew. With the Skyrim Beef Stew, you increase your stamina by 25 for 720 seconds! And now gamers and gamerettes, I’m here to enlighten you all as to how you yourselves can recreate the very same (or at least a very close facsimile) beef stew in your very own kitchen!

First off let’s take a look at what ingredients you would need in the game to create your meal. In the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, one needs Raw Beef, Carrot, Salt Pile, and Garlic to create this hearty dish. Now, if you wish to keep it simple, by all means, use only these four ingredients. But if you wish in embellish upon the dish a bit, I’ve got all the info you need contained right here in this article. Now in the game, you throw those four key ingredients into your rustic ol’ cauldron in the game and BOOM! Skyrim Beef Stew has been created! Now back here in real  life, we would use either a large, deep pot on the stovetop, or the ever-so-handy Crockpot. In my version of Skyrim Beef Stew, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1-1 1/2 lbs. cubed beef
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large carrots, cut into coins
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 onion, diced (optional)
  • 2 stalks of celery, sliced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

First off, you want to get your deep stovetop pot and add your oil. As your oil is heating up, take your cubed beef and toss it in some flour to coat. Once the oil is heated, and the beef is thoroughly coated in the flour, add beef to the hot oil. You will want to brown the beef on all sides. No need to cook it all the way through, we just want it nice and browned. Now if you want, and your pot is big enough, you can continue cooking in your big pot. If not, and you want to go the Crockpot way, transfer your meat to the Crockpot.

Now for the Crockpot method, once you add your meat, go ahead and throw in all of your other ingredients (carrots, potatoes, garlic, onion, celery, a couple pinches of salt and pepper) into your Crockpot. Cover with water, so that the water covers the entirety of the ingredients, and put on your lid. You can set it to high, and cook for about five to six hours, checking on it periodically. Or you can set it to low, and cook for seven to eight hours. This latter method is perfect for those who want to prepare this in the morning then run off to work or school. That way, you come home to a meal fit for that of a Dragonborn at the end of your hard day.

For those of you that have no Crockpot to use at their disposal, keep your browned beef in the same pot. Add your potatoes and your garlic, then cover with water. Lastly, cover your pot with its lid. You’ll want to have the pot on a medium to low heat setting. Let the meat and potatoes cook for around an hour to an hour and a half.

Once your hour to an hour and a half is up, now add in your carrots, celery and onions. You may add more water if necessary, just make sure it covers the ingredients. Add a couple pinches of salt and pepper. Don’t go to crazy with the S and P just yet, remember, you can always add more later if needed. Return the lid to your pot, and cook for about another hour and a half.

For a little extra flavor in your Skyrim Beef Stew, feel free to throw in a beef bouillon cube and perhaps a can of mushrooms if you like mushrooms. A few other options are a couple teaspoons of herbs, such as basil, oregano, or parsley.

Once your few hours of stewing has come to an end, your stew is complete! To really have that Skyrim-feel to your dining experience, add to your meal some crusty bread and a nice ale or mead (for those that are over 21 years of age, that is!). Now sit back, and prepare to dine like a true Dragonborn!
