Cooking with Erin · NaBloPoMo14

Stew Time!

I love to cook. But cooking for picky people ( fiance and his mom) is annoying. Jon isn’t as picky as his mom. When I find a recipe I have to adjust it so all 3 of us will like it and eat it.

I found this recipe called Hamburger Stew  last month when I was unsure what to make with the hamburg I took out that morning to thaw. I wanted to try something new.  This recipe sounded yummy and with a few adjustments I knew the picky one would eat it.

Here is MY version of Hamburger Stew

In a large pan ( I used one that I use to make spaghetti in)

1 lb of hamburg – cook and drain grease

cut 3-4 small potatoes in to small pieces ( or 2 cans of potatoes or a half bag of hash browns)

1 cup of tomato sauce

2 cups of water

1.5 cups of corn

1 can of carrots ( or any veggies you like) 

small amount of salt

small amount of Bell seasoning ( my addition)

add all this to the pan, cover for 30 minutes on medium high until it boils , uncover and cook for 30 minutes more or until the potatoes are cooked.

My pictures arent that good due to sucky kitchen lighting.


I don’t like carrots so I picked them out 🙂

Ive made this about 3 times now and it keeps getting better!
