    Umami, its a wonderful thing

    I fixed a beef vegetable soup, about 1 3/4 of chuck cut up, with green beans, peas, turnip, potatoes, zucchini, onion, carrots, celery and cabbage. I haven't fixed it in years because I always thought it was too bland. I had a first bowl, it was ok, then I remembered everybody talking about Unami here. So I added aged soy sauce, fish sauce and worsterschire sauce to the pan stirred and served up second bowl.....ahhhh very much better. Thanks guys...

    It's the soul of a dish like stew! Nice work.

    Try adding a little tomato paste, early on in your next stew. I can eat that stuff by the spoonful. UMAMI BOMB

    another tip:
    simmer some beef stock with bay leaves, roasted mushrooms, and parmesan rind before you add it to the stew.
