Expert Tips

The word ragout comes from a French word meaning "to stimulate the appetite." This robust stew will satisfy any appetite, and extend a pound of meat, by serving it over polenta. If you have a pound of boneless beef round steak in the freezer or it is on sale, use it instead of the stew meat. If you prefer using homemade tomato pasta sauce, use 1 1/2 cups of your favorite recipe or Marinara Pasta Sauce.
