It’s finally the season for stew. Oh, we’ve enjoyed our potato salad all summer haven’t we, but now we want a bowl of hot comforting stew! Here’s my favourite recipe which is also in my latest book called The Food Lover’s Devotional. This recipe beats your favourite take-out on speed dial
Brenda’s Crockpot Stew
1 ½ pounds stewing beef, rinsed and patted dry
Small jar of sweet pickled onions, drained
4 large carrots, peeled, cut in large chunks
4 medium potatoes, peeled, quartered
3-4 tablespoons salsa
1 can of cream of mushroom or celery soup
Layer the ingredients in crock-pot. Put the lid on, set the dial on low and simmer for four to six hours. It feeds four to six people but easily multiplies to feed a crowd.
The trouble with stew is that it is stew. There’s just no way around it. So while your dinner simmers, practice not worrying because stewing only gets you stew.
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? (Matthew 6:27, NIV)
Prayer – Thanks God for the reminder that you have your hands on our problems and we can relax. Amen
