“This stew is a very versatile dish, because you can make it with different kinds of meat, like chicken or pork. Some recipes even feature a combination of meats.”

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound beef stew meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 medium onion, small dice
¾ cup celery, large dice
2 cloves garlic, crushed

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
Salt and pepper
8 cups leafy greens (collard, mustard greens, kale, or a combination)
2-3 cups cooked rice for serving

INSTRUCTIONS (for fresh pears):
1. In medium pan, sauté the beef and onions in olive oil until the meat is browned.
2. Add the celery, garlic, broth, water, tomatoes, crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper to taste.
