This time of year almost everyone enjoys a hearty bowl of stew. This is a quick recipe that will bring the family to the dinner table. Prepare in the morning it will take about 20 mins. then put it all in the crock pot and let it go until dinner time. Cost of this stew is about $12.00 and makes about 6 servings, so about 2 bucks per person. Here is what you need:
2 lbs sirloin steak or stew beef cut into chunks
1 bag baby carrots
5-6 potatoes peeled (or not)
3 table spoons flour
1 pkg McCormick stew seasoning (normally I would make my own but we are talking quick)
3 cups water
optional: 1 can of sweet corn and or green beans
salt & pepper
1 or 2 cans of Pillsbury rolls
Cut up you meat into medium to small chunks, roll in the flour and put in a skillet over medium heat until brown.
Once the meat is brown add in 3 cups of water and your season mix and let it come to a boil. (about 5 mins)
Cut up the potato and carrots into med chunks. You should have about 5 1/2 cups of veggies.
Put the veggies in the crock pot first, then the meat and water, salt and pepper to your liking.
not all crock pots are the same but if its going to be 8 or more hours until dinner you can put it on low. 6 hours or under put it on high. Leave the corn and green beans until the last 15 mins. of cooking because you don’t want them to turn to mush.
15 mins before dinner follow the directions on the rolls and put in the oven. Add the corn and green beans and you will have a quick and hearty meal that will bring the whole family to the dinner table!
