Country Stew

Country Stew and Cheesy, Buttery Corn Muffins

This recipe was inspired by one in Slow Cooker Simmering Favorites. This is one of our September Giveaways! Be sure to register!

Since Larry was off today, I made this for lunch. Larry and I really, really liked this!!
The Cheesy, Buttery Corn Muffins went really well with it! Great comfort food!!

For supper, Logan ate with the friends. Larry and M.C. cooked a frozen pizza, and I attended our homeschool co-op moms' night out! We ate at Margarita's Grill in Tupelo.
The food was delicious and the fellowship was fun and encouraging!!
We always have a great time!

Country Stew

I made a couple of minor changes to this recipe. I used 3 cups of frozen mixed veggies instead of the carrots and peas, and I substituted a 16 ounce can of beef broth for the water. I sauteed my meat for a few minutes in my cast iron Dutch oven for a few mintues, threw in the other ingredients, brought everything to a boil for about 15 minutes and slipped it into a 300 degree oven for a couple of hours. We thought it turned out really well!

2 pounds stew meat, cut into ¾-inch pieces
1 large baking potato, cubed
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup thin sliced carrots
1 cup frozen English peas
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper, to taste
1 bay leaf

Layer the first five ingredients in a crock pot. Combine tomato sauce and water; whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Add bay leaf. Pour over layers in crock pot. Cook on high for about five hours or until meat and veggies are tender. Discard bay leaf before serving.
