Beef Stew : 'do Piaz'. .'Do piaz' translates to '2 onions'. This Beef
Stew do Piaz is an Indian cooking technique for the onion lovers among
us : it is a slowly braised dish combining both cooked and raw onions.

The main stew ingredient, usually meat, is gently cooked with half the
onions until very tender.
Then a second batch of raw onions is stirred in towards the end of
cooking, to give extra texture and taste.

In traditional do-piaz-stew-recipes : the amount of onions used is 2
times the amount of meat.
If you have a crock pot : this beef stew is ideal to put in the crock
pot after having fried the ingredients.
