  2. Poach eggs by using a large saucepan or skillet. Add 2-3 inches of water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Add vinegar (The acid helps the egg white coagulate around the yolk). Break each egg into a custard cup and gently pour each into pan. Cook 5 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Carefully remove eggs from pan using a slotted spoon. Place 1 poached egg on each serving of stew. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and black pepper.
