Souper Saturday - Texas Stew

Okay, so I did promise to introduce my new buttons this week. Here's one of them!

So cute, huh? Thanks Jo-Lynne!
Be sure to grab it for your post and link back to me.

The reason for this button?

I love making soup. It is such a great meal in the Fall and Winter and my family loves it!

My plan is to share some of my favorite recipes with you and hope you will play along and share some of yours with me.

If you have a favorite recipe that is not soup, please share that, too!

Today, I am re-posting one that is a family fave. I hope you will enjoy it, too.

And don't forget to play along! Because I am not sure what I will do if nobody links up! Here is how you do that...

Just grab the button for your post, post your recipe, sign up with Mr. Linky there at the bottom of the post, link back to my blog and leave me a comment if you have a chance.

I will try to do this at least one Saturday a month - maybe every other.

So, here it is - the easiest stew you might ever make!

Texas Stew (From Easy Weeknight Favorites - Southern Living)

8 servings

2 lbs beef cut into 1 inch pieces
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can of Mexican style stewed tomatoes - undrained
( I use regular stewed tomatoes so it is not so spicy)
1 can condensed beef broth - undiluted
1 (8 oz.) jar of mild to medium salsa picante sauce
1 (10 oz.) package of frozen corn
2 carrots, scraped and sliced
1 medium onion - chopped
2 garlic cloves - minced
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 t. salt
1/3 Cup of water
1/4 Cup of all-purpose flour

Saute meat until it browns. Then combine the next 10 ingredients in a 4-5 quart pot or crock pot. Cover and cook on high until starts to boil - reduce to low for up to 10 hours (note to Saladmaster customers: Saute your meat, add next 10 ingredients, Cover, heat to medium until the vapo-valve clicks. Reduce to low for about 2-4 hours. You will save yourself lots of time, but you can also leave it cooking all day.)

Combine water and flour - bring soup back to a boil and stir into soup until thickened. Serve.

I love soup. I will have to go get my recipe out and come back for Mr Linky.

I love your button. Jo-Lynne's has always done a super job hasn't she? Her work gets better and better with each thing I see on the net!

Musings of a Housewife said...

YUM. I'm so trying that.

And Kellie, lol, it kinda sucks to be one of my first attempts, doesn't it? You and Janel can commiserate. ;-) Thanks for letting me practice on you guys!

Jen said...

Found you via Musings of a Housewife. I can't wait to see all the recipes. It's so cold here now that all I want is a nice warm bowl of soup. Thanks!

Heather said...

I recently posted my baked potato soup, so I figured I would go ahead and share that. I hope you don't mind. :)

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

OH, I am so glad you did, Heather! Thank you for linking!

does anyone else see those little red X's? Why is it doing that?

Heather said...

The x-es are visible to you only. That is so you can remove any objectionable links.

Alicia said...

Found you through Jo-Lynne! My recipe is up!

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

OH, thank you! It takes a village to raise a bloggy baby.

Allison said...

Yum! Yum!
Found this via Jo-Lynne...I hope you continue this every Saturday cuz I will definitely play along!

I love this idea, thanks for doing this. I tried to add the button but my brain is frozen and it didn't work. I'll have to figure it out.

Rebecca a.k.a. Mum said...

Mmmm that soup sounds delish...I am definitely going to try that out soon!

Love the new tag you have, it is souper cute!! ;)

BTW, I emailed you about the camera strap store but in case it went to junk the store is named 'Priddy Creations' and here is the link to it:

Happy weekend to ya!! :)

Kristin said...

I'm so goofy, I can't figure out HOW to copy that button! I tried!! BUT, I did post a delicious corn-crab chowder. Let me know if you make it! And I love your souper saturday idea. You are so much fun!

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Okay, I LOVE you gals! My first Mr. Linky and you were all so encouraging. Thank you so much.

I am going to do it again next week by request AND I cannot wait to make all these soups!!!

Soups on!

Ali said...

This sounds great! I think my husband could live on soup for the whole winter!
