Good Morning Everyone! Happy Thursday!
Wee it’s almost the weekend. I’m going to get a pedicure after work and then Mr. Delish and I are going for sushi with some friends. Then this weekend it is Eat Vancouver on Sunday, we have some family coming into town for the show and we’re going to meet with them for brunch. I’m thinking I might stop in for a bit at the show, but we’ve been going for the last 4 years or so and it gets kind of repetitive after a while. I’ll just have to see how I feel.
What does everyone have planned for tonight and this weekend?
I have a yummy recipe for you today, and guess what? You can make that cornbread and dip it in here. That’s what I did and it was YUM.
This is a recipe my Mom used to make a lot as we were kids and she still makes it every now and then. Its a good recipe for when you don’t really have anything in the house, it just kind of throws together a bunch of items you usually have lying around. Usually this is more of a winter recipe, but since the weather has been total BS around here lately, it was perfect.
Mom’s Hamburger Stew:
1 lb ground beef
1 sweet onion, diced
2 whole carrots, peeled & diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp dried oregano
4 cups reduced sodium chicken stock
1 16 ounce can whole tomatoes ( I end up taking out the actual tomatoes)
3 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
More salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
In a large pot or dutch oven over medium high heat, brown the beef until cooked through, making sure to break up into small pieces as you go. Add the onion, carrots and garlic and cook until softened, stirring often, about 4-5 minutes. Add the salt, pepper and oregano and give it a good stir.
Add the chicken stock and can of tomatoes, now you can either take the tomatoes out now, or leave them in and crush them up in the pot with your spoon. I took mine out because my pot was about to overflow. Lastly, add the potatoes and bring to a simmer, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired. Once it is seasoned to your liking, stir in the parsley and serve!
