Lunch Time


Since some of the Devs on my twitter list seem to be in the mood for soups/stews and Bill (@sempf) suggested I place this recipe here, I present to you

Lamb Stew

  • 1lb ground lamb or beef
  • 6 cups beef broth (I use the beef base from Das Dutchman. It’s inexpensive and takes up much less storage space. It’s available at some area Kroger stores as well as here)
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 package beef stew seasoning
  • 1 cup pearled barley
  • 8-12 oz package of mushrooms (washed and diced)
  • 6-8 carrots, sliced
  • 2-6 whole tomatoes (about 1-1.5lb). Diced
  • 1-2 medium onions, diced
  • 1 can whole kernel corn (optional)
  • Red pepper to taste

Brown meat in 5qt or larger pot (I use a 5qt cast iron Dutch oven)
Add remaining ingredients and bring mixture to a boil
Reduce heat, cover and allow mixture to simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
It may be necessary to add water to the soup as evaporation will occur

Makes 1 gallon + of stew.
