Vegetable Beef Soup/Stew AKA Beef Stoup
Basically, I make a soup but thicken it a bit to be like a stew.
Boil a package of soup meat (homegrown beef) in water with onion, celery, bay leaf, basil and parsley. After it is cooked down to a nice brown broth, I remove the meat and let it cool to tear the meat from the bone and place back in the broth. Add several peeled and coarsely chopped potatoes. When the potatoes are almost done, add cans of whatever veggies you like. I added a can of mixed veggies, can of carrots (I was out of raw carrots), jar of home grown and canned green beans, can of corn, can of diced tomatoes, can of red kidney beans. Thicken it with a bit of corn starch and voila'! Nice, rich, beefy comfort food!
The bread was made in my bread machine. Love that device!
