I'm happy to introduce Lisa at Home to 4 Kiddos today! I first found her since she hosts Try a New Recipe Tuesday, and you're always sure to find something tasty there. I also love how she always gets her kids involved in whatever they're making and teaching them about making food. :) Without further ado, let's welcome Lisa as she shares her Beef Stew!
I am so grateful to be a contributing a guest post today! As CJ mentioned, I’m Lisa. I blog over at "Home to 4 Kiddos," where I write about lots of things, including our homeschool journey. I also host a weekly recipe linkup called "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." :)
Today I’m sharing a recipe with you that I literally made up the other night as I went along. So, it doesn’t quite have a name yet. :) How’s "Lisa’s Beef Stew with whatever she had in the house" sound? Whatever you call it, it turned out to be a *big* hit in my house, and along with my homemade bread, was a perfect meal on a cold and blustery day.
Yield: 12 servings
|8||potatoes, diced||small to medium|
|3-4 stalks||celery, cut|
|1/2 can||peas||or fresh/frozen|
|1/2 can||corn||or fresh/frozen|
|2 cans||cream of mushroom soup|
|shredded cheese||I used mozzarella because it is what I had in the house on a snowy day, but you could use whatever kind you like.|
|2 pounds||ground beef, browned||I had this already in the freezer which I highly recommend. Very convenient!|
- Gather all materials.
- Put potatoes, beef, celery, carrots, corn, and peas in greased pan.
- Stir in soup and water.
- Sprinkle minced onion, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper on top and stir.
- Generously mix shredded cheese throughout. Use what you have left to sprinkle on top when it is done.
- Bake covered at 350F for about 1.5 hours, stirring every 30-45 minutes. Uncover for last 20 minutes or so.
