  1. Here's a link to their recipe pages, but after doing a search, no stoned stew. Perhaps another poster will have the cookbook it's been published in and post the recipe here. Good luck.

        Stoned Stew from "Enjoy" - (Best of Bridge)

        3 pounds stewing beef, cut up
        1/4 cup flour
        1/2 tsp. salt
        1/2 tsp. seasoned pepper
        1/4 cup oil
        2 large onions, thinly sliced
        10 oz. can sliced mushrooms
        10 oz. can beef broth
        12 oz. bottle of beer
        2 tbsp. vinegar
        2 tsp. sugar
        2 cloves garlic, minced
        1 tsp. thyme
        3 bay leaves
        2 tbsp. dried parsley

        Coat the trimmed beef cubes in a mixture of the flour, salt and pepper. Brown the meat then add the rest of the ingredients to the pan. They say to add the liquid from the canned mushrooms too - (don't know about that, isn't it very salty?) Cover and simmer for about 2 hours, adding water if it is needed. Mix in parsley and serve over hot buttered noodles.
        Serves 8

        The ingredient list is as is from the cookbook ( I understand that is OK - right? ), and I hope I have paraphrased the directions enough to satisfy the copyright police.

              You're very welcome. I am very glad I could help.

            2. re: Lotti

              unfortunately I'll bet the beer is one of the main components but I can't use it.
              what could I sub out for it?

          1. ddawnzer, this is a list of Canadian food blogs --
            good as of September 2010-- maybe you could contact someone at random?

            1. I have the recipe for Stoned Stew from "Enjoy" pg. 154 but I am uncertain about posting the recipe. Could someone please clarify if I can post it as it is from the cookbook, or do I need to make some kind of changes to avoid copyright problems? I'm sure there are clear instructions re: what you can and cannot do here, but I can't find them.

              Edit: Dumb!!! I see it now. Recipe follows.

              Edit again: Yikes!! it appeared above. I'll get the hang of this eventually. ;>)

              1. I have 4 Best of Bridge books and none of them have it.
                I hope someone can tell the poster if it's ok to type it out here.
                Would love to see the recipe too.

                  Evidently copyright laws allow the list of ingredients but only paraprasing of the instructions.

                2. so today I bought Grand Slam from the Best of Bridge.
                  no stoned stew in there, but at least I found who was searching for the BofB recipe for something.
                  sorry didn't look down, I see it's been found, now I'll read what it's about............

                    Just a friendly suggestion for making this tasty stew..fresh mushrooms are WAY better and lots of them..I also use LOTS more onions than it calls for. It's great to cook on top of the stove, oven or crock pot..If you don't want to put beer in it you can use wine or even just more beef stock or consomme. Dark beer is best...Enjoy..that's the book that contains this recipe..
