Kidney Stew

The recipe for kidney Stew is from the book “Aşçıbaşı” (The Chef), written in 1898. It is a rather easy recipe. The important part is the cooking time on very low heat. And it needs beef stock as a preparation. If you are alright with using a ready-made bouillon, this dish can be prepared anywhere and anytime – even by cooking-challenged people.
