I cook like my mom: no “real” recipe! That is why I love the canned beef: anything you do works! My fav for the very quick and easy fast-food use is barbecue. I just cook it thru with any pre-made sauce (last time I used the Jack Daniels ….bottled barbecue sauce, really!!!), and put it on oat bran buns. It was delicious! And I froze very small batches and that was a tasty-time saver on crazy days. I do plan on doing some other variations when I have more time.
The stew is also my most recent staple. In a separate pot I cooked chunks of potato then added lots of frozen veggies (from carrots to corn, peas,broccoli, etc.). In a large stew pot I sauteed onions (probably should add celery, too) . Then I added the canned beef, plus a can of beef broth and brought it to temp . Once the veggies were ready (I like them sort of crunchy) I added them (and all of that water) to the beef, let it simmer a bit, and it was done. I used just enough water to cover the veggies and added a chicken bouillon to that pot. I have thickened it with a small amount of flour, but it is just as good w/o being thick. On a day I had a spare tomato, I tossed that in (but I prefer it w/o tomato). I also added some of the leftover barbecue to some leftover stew and that was delicious .
The one thing I did do is to remove the fat-chunks from the opened can before I used the beef. Actually, I probably did it more to make the cat a treat, too ( he loved his “stew ” ). It is just another option, if you want to be extra, extra lean, I guess.
So you can see I am not very specific and pretty much a short-cut cook these days. I want to try a stroganoff stew to add over home-made “haluski ” (it is a Slovak thick noodle sort of dumpling-like but not as large ). Once my family gets their “canned-Christmas gifts” I am sure they will come up with better recipes. Maybe I will suggest a family contest !!!!
