Stew

The first things that come to mind when you think “stew” are probably beef, pork or chicken. But boneless duck breast, which is considered red meat, is delicious when simmered. It’s also a great source of iron. And since everyone knows stew only gets better when you reheat it, it’s perfect for packed lunches!
