10-Minute Tin-Can Stew Recipe

I always feel like I’m in a pickle when it comes to dinner-time. Tonight was the baby’s nap…she slept forever (in my lap) and put me totally in a crunch to make dinner. But that’s where one of my favorite go-to meals comes in: 10-Minute Tin-Can Stew Recipe.

Putting Together 10-Minute Tin-Can Stew:

  1. If you’re all slow like me and are looking to make the whole 10-minute thing and not just 5-minute stew, cut your potatoes and carrots into bite-size morsels. Go ahead and cut-up your onion, too, but note, I forgot to buy an onion this time, so I used dried minced onion–and it still turned-out great.
  2. Put your potatoes, carrots, onions and every can of veggies (including the water in the can) you’ve got into a big pot. If you’re using meat, put your cooked-meat in at this time, too!
  3. Add 2 more cans of water from the tap, if you’ve still got room in the pot.
  4. Add salt, pepper, garlic and stock.
  5. Boil until the potatoes and carrots are soft to your liking.
  6. Enjoy!

10-Minute Tin-Can Stew Veggies

I like to make Tin-Can stew with cornbread most nights, but this time, I had a loaf of homemade bread already making when I decided to let my daughter fall asleep in my lap…so, we didn’t make cornbread this time, but that’s often our go-to combo.

10-Minute Tin-Can Stew Canned Goods

Using canned foods can make cooking homemade so much easier. There’s less prep (I can’t imagine having to cook ALL of these veggies at once!) and they’re available year-round. So, we can eat a little healthier more often. Being stocked-up on canned goods also allows me to be a little more creative and feel less rushed. I love a good canned-good-meal!

I try to stock-up on Del Monte and LeSueur  when Albertsons (my local grocer) has their 10-cans for $10 sales…makes dinner so much cooler if I can say it only cost me $5 to put it all together! LOL!
