This week I am linking up with Johanna of Mama Chocolate,
Alesha of Full Time Mama , and
Amanda of Coping with Frugality for Delicious Dish Tuesday! This week is the ONE YEAR CELEBRATION of this weekly meme – congrats ladies!
I love to cook believe it or not. I really enjoy it, but I’m not so great at it! Another confession? I am addicted to Bob Evans. I know, I know – it’s not good for me! It’s a weakness I have though. They have this entree there called “Open Face Roast Beef” and it’s delicious! So…my mind went “a wonderin’” and I wanted to try something similar and decided it would be “Open Face Beef Stew”! Ok, so it’s not technically a stew, but it’s similar!
I started off by putting some cubed beef stew pieces in the baking dish topped with onion soup mix. I added water (until the meat was just covered) and cooked for about 2 hours.
While it was cooking I cut up some carrots, onions and mushrooms and added after about two hours. My husband and I prefer the veggies to not be overcooked/soggy so we add them towards the end of the cooking time.
After adding the veggies I made some homemade mashed potatoes to go with it. I cheated and opened a jar of gravy and heated that. The total cook time for the “beef stew” was about 2 hours 45 minutes. I toasted some Texas sized bread and added the meat and gravy on top and added my sides of mashed potatoes and gravy and veggies. YUM-O!
Super simple and delicious! Be sure to stop by and check out what my friends at the above links have dished up on this one year anniversary of Delicious Dish Tuesday!
