If you are looking for something to make for dinner that keeps your house cooler, try this stew recipe in a crock pot. I love stew anytime. Unfortunately my crock pot is packed up! It was a little cooler today so I spent my day cooking.
Step 1: Ingredients
1/4 Chopped tomato I just added this because I needed to use it up
4-6 Chopped carrots
6 Chopped celery
1 Chopped small onion
1/2 Chopped bell pepper
2 Chopped Rutabagas
1 Chopped squash
1/2 Small pkg mushrooms (you will slice them)
1 Large package stew meat or 2 small packages hubby said I did not add enough meat.
3 Minced garlic buds
Vegetable soup mix
3 cubes of chicken broth
2 Cans diced tomatoes
Approx 8 cups water
Step 2: Utensils
Garlic press optional
Step 3: Season and Cook the Stew Meat
Allow the meat to reach room temperature.
Cook the meat in a skillet.
While the meat is cooking start preparing the vegetables.
Step 4: Wash and Cut Vegetables
Mince the garlic.
Slice the mushrooms.
Step 5: Stock Pot
Mix 2 cups of water with the soup mix.
Add the garlic.
Mix 2 cups of water to the chicken cubes.
Pour into the stock pot.
Step 6: Cook
Add the cooked stew meat
Season as desired
Step 7: Add Rutabagas, and Sliced Mushrooms
It took my stew 2 hours until I added the rutabagas because of a high altitude.
Add the fresh tomatoes 5 minutes before serving.
