    Hello everyone,

    Im an Eggs, Chicken, & Other Recipes section-a-holic [​IMG]

    I have stew meat out and thawed, I don't want to make stew though. We just had a chicken stew so I'm looking for suggestions for something different. I've though of chili, but thought about posting here to see if any of you have something else that might be good.

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    How about fajitas? Slice thinly and let slow cook in fajita seasoning. I found a home made spice recipe on line. Very good and way cheaper than buying the little packets.

    Or, slice thin and cook with a couple of cans of cream of muchsroom soup, some diced onion if you have it, garlic and a little milk Will make a nice gravy and you can serve that over a bun, rice or noodles. I also add extra mushrooms if I have them and even some brocoli. Can be a one dish meal. Can also do in the crockpot.

    Do you have yogurt? That works too.

    Fijitas are also a good idea.​

    I was thinking stroganoff, I would cook them down to be tender, then you can do anything! Loving to cook myself, I have put the beef in to cook during the day with a bay leaf, oregano, garlic, onions, celery, green and red pepper if you like (a bit of bullion too)
    Then at dinner time, remove 2 cups of liquid (if in crock pot) bring to a boil, turn down allow it to reduce in 1/2. Strain the remaining liquid saving the veggies to save. I like to add 1/4 cup sherry and reduce again (brandy will work) and it will remove the alcohol- you do not have to do this.
    Then I add 2 tbls corn starch to 1/4 cold water, stir to dissolve pour into boiling broth, let boil a short while, giving you a rich gravy. Add meat, veggies and warm up again, serve over rice or with potato. You can also have over toast or biscuits.
    If you prefer a cream base, add milk to your corn starch as 1/2 cup and good luck!

    Personally I'm in love with Lipton onion soup mix and only have it when no one else is around! Ha ha...good luck and I think I'll do that with the chicken tonight! mmmm- thanks

    How about chili? Nothing heartier than chili made with stew meat. Just cube it up smaller.
