Mom's Hamburger Stew

Submitted by: PATTIATTI

Introduction

A yummy stew, this gravied delight is served over mashed potatoes with some bread to sweep up any extra sauce. It could also be served hot in a bowl, but served over mashed potatoes is how we had it growing up. Yum yum yum.

Ingredients

    500 g, Ground Beef (I use extra lean)
    2 cups, carrots, sliced
    1.4 cup onion, sliced
    1.5 cup celery, sliced
    10 tsp bisto gravy mix*
    1 cup corn starch*
    1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb
    1 tbsp Pepper
    1/2 tbsp oregano

    6 red potatoes
    1/2 Cup of Milk*

    *You may not use full amount of either ingredient. Thickness and taste can be altered to taste or preference.

Directions

Makes 6 hearty portions. Yum yum.

Throw ground beef, carrots, onions, celery and beans in a pot and cover with water (just enough to cover it).

Add any spices you wish. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn it down to a simmer and let it go for an hour.

In the meantime, wash and peel your potatoes and quarter. Put them in another pot, covered with water. Boil for 20 minutes or until soft. Pour a little of the potato water into the stew pot for flavour, if needed. Drain potatoes, mash and then beat with hand beaters, adding milk to make them creamy - but in small amounts at a time.

In a mug, mix bisto into a cup of cold water to dissolve. Pour into the stew mix. In a mug, dissolve corn starch in tbsp increments, with cold water, and pour into stew. Cook high for a minute and then turn it down. The trick is to get the corn starch to thicken it a little so that the stew has a gravy-ish base.

Once thickened to desired levels, serve by dishing up mashed potatoes as wanted, making an impression and pouring the stew over top. It's yummy! My dad liked ketchup on top (how weird), but I like it as is.

Please note : I do not salt this dish while cooking, at all! My boyfriend salts food before he even tastes it, so I like to leave it out and then let people add it to taste. Please adjust recipe accordingly.

Also - if you don't want it served ON potatoes, you could always cut potatoes up and add it to the stew. It'd be yummy!
