Quick Stew

Quick Stew

Ready in 45 minutes

Simple, healthy, quick and all in one pot, also great for those that are never on time as it can be put in a dish and heated in the microwave when they do decide to show.

"I modified this slightly - cooked the ground beef and onions first, then added the potatoes and liquid (instead of water I used chicken stock, which I had on hand). Instead of tomato sauce and barbecue sauce, I just used ketchup. It was even better than I expected."
