Poor Man's Stew... Hearty Meal for the Family on a Busy Work Week..

Hey Everyone!!
I'm back with a simply and tasty recipe..
It's called Poor Man's Stew, will more like a Deconstructed Meatloaf. 
I also made cheesy garlic biscuits..
This is something you can do right after work and the cooking time is about 45 minutes to an hour, minus the biscuits. You can pop open a can of biscuits, melt some butter, add garlic and herbs, put over the biscuits and pop them in the oven for 15 minutes. While you're preparing the ground meat, boil some potatoes or make rice.


Ground Meats
Tomato Paste
Chicken Broth or Cube
1/4 Cup Flour
1 Cup Water

Garlic Pepper
Dried Parsley
Worcestershire Sauce
Steak Seasoning
Dried Parsley
Brown Seasoning

I got a great price on the ground meat.. 

All the veggies sliced and diced.

Used frozen peas

Brown, drain ground meat and put in separate bowl.

In the same pot add carrots, onions, celery, parsley, and garlic.
Cook until tender.

Add broth or cube 

Let it saute' for about 2-3 my minutes.

Add flour 

Then add about 1 cup of water.

Add about a 1/2 Tablespoon of Kitchen Bouquet.
Let simmer for 5 minutes

Add browned ground meat.

Add 1/4 cup of Tomato Paste

Looking Good..

Add peas

Let simmer for another 5 minutes.

 We love it over potatoes and I also made homemade garlic biscuits.  

Until Next Time....
