Thread: Homemade stew?
01-27-2007, 12:10 PM #1
Ok, I'm not very good and just "throwing things together". So, I need some help. I have a few things I would like to put together to make a stew, so I wanted to run the ingredients by you girls to see if you would either add anything, or take something away. Or if I just just find a recipe to follow.
These are the ingredients I want to put together in the crockpot,
2 small steaks, cubed and seared.
2 cans veg all
onion and garlic seasoning
skinned cubed potatoes.
I thought I would cook all this in the crockpot until it looks done. What do you think? I'm going to serve it with some home made bread.

Sounds good to me Tiffany, well except maybe the spinach part!
Let us know how it comes out.

What you have there looks good & I think it will work.
If it was me, I'd change two things: leave out the spinach, and add in either diced or stewed tomatoes to get a little more flavor in the "juice". I've never had spinach in stew before, so I'm not sure how that comes out. And the tomatoes, well... they add a lot of flavor, and we all love them in my house. But that's just to suit my family.... taste is really a personal thing, so you should go with whatever your family likes!

Looks good to me. I would only add beef broth instead of water or add some bouillon cubes to the water if you have them.

I'm with everyone else-leave the spinach out, throw everything else in. Here are some add-ins if happen to have any laying around
-few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
-tomato sauce or any tinned tomato product
-beef boullion cube or a TB of granules
-a can of beer

I will take this advise and run with it. No spinach! I will probably add some tomatoes, maybe diced tomatoes? I have diced tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato soup in the house right now. I will add beef bullion and maybe some worcestershie sauce. I wouldn't have thought to add that without the suggestion. Thanks again!!!

It was OK. It didn't really have the flavor I wanted. Actually, I think I would have preferred it if I had used no meat at all and just used beef seasoning. The boys liked it, so thats all that really mattered. The worcheshire sause was a good idea, I probably used to much, it tasted a little like steak sauce. I still have some left, but not really enough to feed 5 of us (DH and I and his two friends) , so I'm adding some noodles and maybe a little more water and serving with grilled cheese sandwiches. It was super cheap and easy. Definitely something I'm going to work on and add to as needed. Thanks girls!
