#wherefoodmeetslife - life stories & more
I have been down in the dumps lately. I am sure most of you all have as well. I'm so ready for this #socialdistancing nightmare to end. This is just absolutely nerve wrecking to me.
I guess most of you have been cooking more lately than you usually do. I hope you have checked out some of the many recipes that I have on here. One of my favorite things to eat is soup. Soup is just so soothing to soul. It is one of the best comfort food you can eat.
I have been trying to stock up on can foods when I go to the store. It is always best to keep your pantry stock with a little can foods all the time. This way, you can always come up with some type of meal by utilizing in some can foods. If you drain them well, and rinse off your can food items, that will eliminate that "can" taste.
For Sunday Supper this week I decided to make a "clean out your pantry soup." Honestly, I think this soup was tasted better using the can items in lieu of the frozen vegetables. This way, you can open up some of your favorites to add.
Here's what I used:
1 can of Great Northern Beans
1 can of Corn
1 can of Black Eyed Peas
1 Can of Green Beans
1 Can of Stewed Tomatoes
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
1/4 cup of chopped white onion
1 Can of Tomato Sauce
3 large peeled and diced red potatoes
1 pkg of stew meat (or you can use a steak or pot roast meat)
2 Tablespoons of Lowry's Garlic Pepper
1 Teaspoon of Red Pepper Flakes
Salt/Pepper to Taste
Layer your meat on bottom of crockpot (There's no need to brown first)
Top with your chopped onion. Throw some pinches of the garlic pepper, salt & pepper on top.
DRAIN VERY WELL and rinse off your can items.
Throw them all in the crockpot, with your tomato cans. Add in water to fill your crockpot to top.
Let Simmer on low all day. You can use medium/high heat if you are where you can watch it for the first couple of hours. Your meat and potatoes will be tender when ready to serve. I served mine with some of the yummy #sweetyellowcornbread.
