"Beef" Stew

Just like Grandma used to make... seriously, this was a little hard to eat it tastes so much like the real thing!

2 cups carrots,chopped
4 medium potatoes, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
olive oil
2 pkgs. Morningstar farms steak strips
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. tumeric
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
dash of cinnamon
Pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. flour
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups reconstituted vegetarian 'beef' bullion

  1. Fill a large pot with water. Bring carrots and potatoes to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are cooked but still firm. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil and saute steak strips and onion until onion is translucent. Add spices and flour.
  3. Slowly add the broth/bullion to the saucepan until a gravy forms. Mix in the carrots and potatoes. Stir constantly until desired consistancy is reached, adding water if needed.

Oh you're daring! I can't stomach the flavor of meat. Oddly enough, Hubs is a huge meat eater. Ugh.
I'll have to try this one on him to see if he can tell.

I have a question about the steak strips. I tried them in a stir fry, and they ended up mushy. Any suggestions? Are the squishy in the stew? It sounds really good.

Tip for the "beef" and "chicken" strips:

I have found that mine are mushy as well when I try to fry them up in a skillet. Either that, or they take WAY too much time to get the consistency I like. Which is why I usually toss them with a little oil, put them on a baking sheet, then throw them in the oven for about 15 minutes to bake. They get a nice texture when you do this.

BTW: Love this blog.

This can't have effect in actual fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
