What's for Dinner Wednesday

Hey y'all!  I hope everyone had a happy Valentine's Day, however you spent it!  When I share recipes I usually do them on Friday but, I haven't shared a recipe in a while & I wanted to shake things up a bit!  

This week's recipe is: Stew or Cowboy Stew as we call it!

1 lb ground meat (I used ground turkey)
1 medium potato - peeled & diced
1 can of corn
1 can of carrots
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 packet of Cream of Mushroom gravy mix
1 packet of Brown gravy mix
1 packet of Home Style gravy mix
1 packet of Pork gravy mix
1/2 tbsp. Dried minced onion

Dice the potato & boil in a pot with 6 cups of water
While the potatoes are boiling, brown your meat
Once your ground meat is browned, add it to the pot of potatoes & water
Drain the corn, carrots & tomatoes & add into the pot
Add in the 4 packets of gravy mix & the dried minced onion
Let it get to a rolling boil & then turn down your heat
Let it stand for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally - don't let it burn on the bottom!  :)

& VOILA!  Cowboy Stew!


This recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight meal or a Sunday afternoon linner = Lunch/Dinner!  It made enough for Matt & I both to have full portions for dinner & lunch the next day, plus a little more left over.

***I would normally use fresh vegetables to put in the stew but, this was a last minute meal & the canned veggies made it SUPER easy!  When I use fresh veggies I would use 2 ears of corn, 3-4 large carrots, 1-2 medium tomatoes & 1/2 of a purple onion.

Hope y'all enjoy!
