World's Best Stew Better than Dinty Moore
I made this stew today for tonight's dinner and it was so amazingly good I wanted to share with anyone who loves Dinty Moore Stew, this is so much better:
1 lb stew meat
3 tbs. dehydrated onion flakes or one medium onion
clove garlic minced
potatoes pealed and cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs. corn starch dissolved in a little cold water
2 pks brown gravy
In large pan or dutch oven cover meat with about 2 to 3 inches water and boil with onions garlic and cornstarch until tender. Add water if needed during cooking to keep juicy.
When meat is tender add potatoes and carrots (I used 3 medium sized red and two handfuls of baby carrots sliced) and cook until tender.
Add the two pkgs of brown gravy that has been dissolved in cold water bring back to boil then to a simmer
Have this dumpling recipe ready to add:
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tbs soft margarine
1 cup milk
Mix together dry ingredients and cut in margarine until it looks like meal. Add milk and you should have a very sticky dough. If not add more milk.
Drop by spoonfuls on top of stew. Put lid on pan and cook for ten minutes. After 10 minutes cut through a dumpling to make sure they are done, if still doughy cook a little longer.
Enjoy your stew!!
