Even though the days are still warm here, the evening has started cooling down pretty rapidly. I’ve started making some of our favorite cool weather meals. Last night I made what I call Tin Can Stew, aptly named by the fact that it uses vegetable from tin cans. For working women and busy mom’s, this is something that can be assembled in a hurry and left to simmer on the stove while their attention is diverted to the many other details that kids’ and the end of the day bring.
Tin Can Stew
1 pound of browned ground beef
1 29 oz. can of Veg-All Homestyle Large Cut vegetables
1 14 1/2 oz. can pea’s
1 14 1/2 oz. can green bean’s
1 15 oz. can whole corn
1 15 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 cup water
4 tablespoons Better Than Bullion Beef Base
In 4 quart dutch oven combine all ingredients except Better Than Bullion Beef Base. Bring to a simmer and add the Better Than Bullion Beef Base stirring until thoroughly dissolved. Let simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes. Makes approximately 4 quarts of soup.
Ground turkey can be substituted for the ground beef.
If fresh vegetable are substituted for the canned vegetables, allow for a long simmer time of about 1 hour.
Happy Eatin’ Y’all!
