A liquid food prepared from meat, fish, or vegetable stock combined with various other ingredients and often containing solid pieces.and then turns around and gives us this one for stew:
A dish cooked by stewing, especially a mixture of meat or fish and vegetables with stock. A mixture likened to this dishso is it all just a matter of how much time is involved in the cooking process? does cooking something longer, essentially to stew it, define what it is? if so, what am i to make of a quick stew that is soup-like, or a chili that sits more like a stew?
n 1: ground beef and chili peppers or chili powder often with tomatoes and kidney beans [syn: chili con carne]trust me, i've seen chilis and chili recipes that had NONE of these ingredients in them.
