Hodgepodge Stew

October 30, 2016

Dinner: What’s in it you might ask? Well, it may be easier to ask what’s not in it.

 

I wanted all kinds of flavors tonight, and I could not decide what to make, so I made a stew using everything. I am calling it Hodgepodge Stew.

Ok… I will give you the stew overview:

I sautéed a large diced white onion with a few serrano peppers and a few cloves of garlic. When they were a little brown, I added some celery and carrots. After a few minutes of sautéing, I added a quart of homemade beef stock. When it came to a boil I added a couple cubed white potatoes and let it cook until the potatoes were almost done.

Meanwhile I made a pinwheel of pasta and gyro meat. (That's whipped egg brushed on the gyro meat so it all sticks together when it's cooked.)

 

I added the sliced pinwheels to the stew with the following:
-Some collard greens I cooked last night with smoked hog jowls (cubed)
-Charred sweet potatoes
-Cooked Lima Beans
-Very tender beef I had in the freezer which was cooked in tomato sauce. (cubed)
-Salt and pepper

When everything was tender, I added about 3 cups of cooked lentils (pureed) to thicken the stew.

I hope you enjoyed my dinner tonight.

Enjoy!
