This is what I did with the kale that arrived in my organic box this week. I stirred it into the beef stew the last few minutes it was cooking. Really, the kale turned out not to have as much flavor as I thought it would. For the stew: I browned flour-dredged chunks of beef and seasoned the meat. I put one medium onion, baby carrots and six cloves of garlic in the crockpot, added the beef, poured a can of diced tomatoes on top, added two cups of chicken broth and about a cup of red wine. I seasoned with oregano, pepper, and a bit of basil. About an hour before serving, I added the baby baker potatoes. Total simmer time was about nine hours.
