Decided to do something different this time. For those who know me they know I love to cook and Dutch Oven cooking is my method of madness.
I would normally do this in a bean pot on a wood stove but I like to let it cook all day and this particular day I didn’t have that luxury. I make a fire pit out of rims and a 10 inch dutch fits snugly in the center of the rim. Works perfect.
The reason I call it Lazy Man’s Stew is because for the most part you are just opening cans.
1 pound top sirloin steak
3 tbsps olive oil
2 tbsps minced garlic
1 medium onion (diced)
12 oz Heinz mushroom gravy
24 oz beef broth
4 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp pepper
1/2 tsp curry
2 medium potatoes (cut in 1/4 inch cubes)
15 oz canned carrots
15 oz canned green beans
15 oz canned corn
2 glasses Elderberry wine
Add olive oil to Dutch oven and when it gets hot add onions and minced garlic. Cook,stir frequently, until onion is clear.
Then add meat.
Now pour your first glass of wine. (optional)
When meat is cooked add the gravy and beef broth. Then add the remaining ingredients.
Bring to a rolling boil and cook for twenty minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Pour your second glass of wine. (optional)
Lower heat (I raise the pot higher off the fire) and let simmer for an hour. Remove from fire and let sit for 10 minutes then serve.
As you can see I always use my finest China.
How many does it serve? Depends on how hungry you are.
