This is an excellent stew. Simple, healthy and the favor is wonderful.
This stew can be made with ground or cubed Beef or Pork or Chicken
The great flavor comes from the turnip roots
Here I am using Ground Pork
Turnip roots peeled and diced
Carrots Peeled and diced
3/4 diced onion
Salt and Pepper to taste
I am using 4 turnip roots and 4 carrots adjust for the size of your family. I am making enough for our dinner and then leftover for lunch tomorrow.
This is ground pork and I cannot tell you how much because we buy our pork from the butcher and divide it into portions for our cooking.
It came out of a zip lock bag that I had in the freezer and thawed. I could guess somewhere 1/2 pound and 1 pound.
Peel and chop the carrots
Peel and chop the turnips
Chop the onion
First put on the carrots to cook. Cover with water, bring to boil and reduce the heat to a slow boil. When they are about half way cooked ( pierce them with a fork to test) then add the turnips. Turnip roots do not take long to cook.
Add the turnips and a little more water to almost cover the turnips and carrots.
Cover the vegetables with a lid and cook on low boil and test with a fork until almost done.
While the vegetables are cooking cook the meat.
Add the chopped onion to the meat after the meat is cooked, toss the onions with the meat and add just a bit of water to get the meat flavor in the bottom of the skillet incorporated with the meat and onion.
Add the meat and onion to the vegetables and bring back to a low boil for a couple of minutes.
This is a very tasty dish and it is my most favorite and I could eat it very often. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Grandma Donna
