Ingredients

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Directions

  1. In a large sauce pan, with a lid, over medium heat, whisk the oil and flour together. Stir the mixture constantly for about 10-15 minutes, for a dark roux. Season the stew meat with Essence. Add the meat to the roux and brown the meat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the chopped onions and celery. Season with salt and cayenne. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the bay leaves and red wine.
  2. Stir for 1 minute, until a paste forms. Stir the water into the roux mixture. Add the onions, carrots, turnips, potatoes, garlic, thyme, and black pepper. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the meat is very tender. Remove the bay leaves and adjust the seasoning if needed. Serve over rice or creamy grits.
