Soups & Chowders


Bean Soup Mike&Jeannie Bean Soup

¼ cup Crisco if meat is very lean
1 large onion chopped fine
2 cloves garlic smushed and chopped (more if you like)
1 Tblsp. Rosemary (crush with fingers)
1 Tblsp. Thyme
1 Tblesp. Sage
1 Teasp. Ground cumin
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tblesp. Red pepper flakes (optional)
1 Teasp. Black pepper
1 – 2 bay leaves
Salt to taste
2 medium ham hocks, A big ham bone with meat left on it, or ½ lb. of bacon cut in small pieces
4--5 cups cleaned pinto beans
Water to cover (use good water)

In a large Dutch oven, like a number 9 or 10 Griswold Dutch Oven (with or without legs as I use a number 10 w/o legs and put it in my kitchen oven to cook), cook ground meat with onions and garlic.

When meat is mostly cooked, add other dry ingredients and mix well. Then add pinto beans, ham hocks and water to cover. If using bacon, do not cook the bacon, add raw pieces now. Add the bay leaves last.

Cover with lid and cook in the oven at 300 for 3-4 hours. Check beans every 30-40 minutes and add water as needed. Don’t let the beans get dry.

Generally, when the ham hocks are falling apart, the beans will be done too. When everything is done, pull out the ham bones, skin and fat as desired and mix the ham meat in with the beans and ground meat.

A bowl of this topped with fresh chopped spring onions along with some good skillet made corn bread or biscuits is about as good as it gets. Enjoy!! 20051126

Hint for Quick Soups Granny J Soup recipes please

When you're finished with a meal and have a dab of something left, put it in a rather large freezer container (about quart size) and pop it in the freezer. Keep doing this until you have a container full of left-overs. Depending on how meaty you like soup, and how much meat is in the container, you may want to sauté a couple pieces of beef, chicken, ground meat, sausage, bacon or whatever you have on hand. Onion can be added to this. Add the left-overs, a can of tomatoes, or small can of corn, English peas, green beans (again depending on what is in the freezer container) season as you like it and heat through for a quick pot of soup. If the consistency is too thin, add a handful of oatmeal to thicken. If gravies were used in the "keeping" container, this won't be necessary. Just "go by guess and by gosh" and you will always have a good, and different, pot of soup. It uses even small quantities of left-overs and will work for one or two people or for a large family.

Add crackers or cornbread and you can be out of the kitchen in an hour. 20041008

Cheesy Vegetable Soup UntiredRon Cheesy Vegetable Soup

My wife had a tooth pulled today and informed me she wouldn't be eating anything solid tonight. I boiled and mashed 5 medium potatoes. While they were boiling I took a package of frozen mixed veggies [broccoli,snap peas, green beans, carrots,celery, water chestnuts, red peppers], a medium onion,chopped, 2 garlic cloves and a can of Cream of Chicken soup and boiled them with just enough water to barely cover them. After the veggies were done I pureed them with their water/soup mix and poured that into the mashed potatoes. Wisked in about 6oz sharp Cheddar, grated, and called her to taste before heading to the dentist. Posting this here was her idea. Says I'm her hero. Likes my cooking, too.  20051102

Beef Barley Soup ol'blue More recipes needed

Mini Meatball Soup ol'blue Mini Meatball Soup

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil,
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 bay leaves, fresh or dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound ground beef, pork and veal combined
1 egg, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Romano, a couple of handfuls
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs, a couple of handfuls
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated or ground nutmeg
6 cups chicken stock or broth
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups dried pasta, rings, broken fettuccini or ditalini
1 pound triple washed fresh spinach, coarsely chopped

In a deep pot over medium heat add oil, chopped carrots, celery and onions and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Cover pot and cook veggies 5 or 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the veggies cook, combine meat, egg, garlic, grated cheese, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, nutmeg. Uncover your soup pot and add broth and water to the pot. Increase heat to high and bring soup to a boil. When soup boils, reduce heat a bit and start to roll meat mixture into small balls, dropping them straight into the pot. You are making meat dumplings that will cook in the broth. When you are done rolling the meat, add pasta to the soup and stir. Cover and simmer soup 10 minutes. When pasta is tender, stir in chopped spinach in batches. When spinach has wilted into the soup, the soup is done and ready to serve. Adjust your seasonings.

Hamburger Minestrone Soup kml2000ga Frugal living UGH

If you like soup, this is a recipe I make quite often and it freezes well. I use store brand veggies in this since I cook it all day and the flavors blend. I never make it the same way twice, so...feel free to make it YOUR way. It is GREAT with cornbread:

1 lb hamburger meat (I use a lean kind - chuck, ground sirloin - whatever was on sale)
1 onion, chopped
Chopped garlic to taste - usually use at least 1tsp of minced garlic in a jar
1 can whole kernel corn - NOT DRAINED
1 can light red kidney beans - NOT DRAINED
1 can green beans - NOT DRAINED
1-2 cans tomatoes (diced, whole, whichever you prefer)
1-2 ribs of celery OR 1 tbsp of dried jarred celery
1tbsp Italian Seasoning

Brown hamburger meat with chopped onion and garlic, drain. Mix all canned veggies, spices, and celery in stock pot with meat. Add water (usually 1 can per can of tomatoes used) and let cook all day.
Serve with cornbread or by itself.

The original recipe calls for a fresh zucchini and 1/2 cup of cabbage and I like it that way, however, it doesn't seem to freeze that well. If you plan to freeze I wouldn't put them in. If you don't plan to freeze, by all means, ADD THEM.
I also change out veggies, add more, etc. Sometimes I add butter beans, etc. Adds variety.

Wintertime Soups & Chowders Granny J Wintertime Soups and Chowders

On the days when the weather is too bad to be outdoors, cook up a pot of soup or one of chowders and serve it with cornbread. Good!

Soups can be as simple as cooking bacon or smoked sausage, pouring off the fat, sautéing finely chopped onion in the pot and then adding a can of seasoned tomatoes and milk or cream for a cream soup or water for a plain soup. I always add a pinch of baking soda and a pinch of sugar to this to cut he acidity of the tomatoes.   

Or it could be an all afternoon cooking marathon. Use whatever meat you like and add as many vegetables as you want. A little pasta is always good and helps to "thicken the broth". A little oatmeal does the same thing and with the health benefits from it, it goes into a lot of things I cook.

A good, quick chowder is made with ham chopped up and sautéed with onions until they are tender. Add canned (or fresh broth, whatever flavor you like) thickened with a little flour. Then add canned corn, 1 each creamed and whole kernel is good, and when all that has boiled, add the milk or cream. Of course, salt and pepper is added to taste to all of the soups.

Sorry . . . I don't do measurements - and never do things exactly the same twice.

Favorite Chicken Soup & Dumplings ConnieAndMike Chicken Soup

Our favorite chicken soup starts with a rotisserie chicken from Costco. After we've eaten about 1/2 the chicken, saving the bones and skin, I tear off the remaining chicken meat and set it aside. Then start simmering 4 cans of chicken broth. Add all the bones and skin, chopped carrots, 4 chopped garlic cloves, 1 chopped onion, 4 diced carrots, 3 sliced celery and a large handful of chopped parsley. I also toss in about 1/3 tsp of poultry seasoning and 1 tsp celery seed.
Simmer for an hour or more until veggies are tender. Strain and then put the broth back in the pot with the carrots, celery, onions and the reserved chicken meat. I add noodles and/or rice separately to each bowl. This is a very rich soup.

Just this week, I made chicken soup and then turned half of it into chicken and dumplings. Added a couple more cans of chicken broth to the 1/2 of soup recipe.

2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
1 or more Tablespoons chopped parsley
1 Tablespoon chicken fat if you have it, if not use butter
Half and half or cream (enough to turn dry ingredients into a light dough)

Stir dry ingredients together. Mix in fat till it is evenly distributed.   Add enough liquid to make a light dough.
Drop by teaspoons full on top of simmering soup. Cover and cook about 15 minutes.

Of course, in making this or any other soup, the best thing you can do is start with stock rather than water. About once a month I make what I call "Cleaning out the frig/freezer soup"

First you boil a chicken. This is the only part that is not optional.

Since you used a large pot you now have a gallon of broth. De-bone the chicken and set aside. You can either use it in the soup or bag and freeze for something else (casserole, dumplings, chicken salad etc.) If you use it in the soup, put it BACK in towards the end. Now look in the frig/freezer and take out whatever "needs to be cooked". Veggies of any description will work...leftover meat too. Add a can of diced tomatoes...corn, beans whatever. It really doesn't matter. Onions, celery, carrots,'s all good. If you like rice, add about 1/4 cup raw rice....or barley:-) Are you getting the point?

This is never the same twice...I always make sure the boys have friends over (late teens) They always rave about it and there is never anything left over. You can make good soup out of just about anything you have on hand...but first you have to boil a chicken:-) Really. 20041008

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1 c. chopped celery
1 t. dried basil
Brown chicken in oil two minutes, then add noodles and cook stirring often, 1 min. Add remaining ingred. Secure cooker's lid, develop to high pressure, and cook eight minutes. Release pressure according to manufacturer's instructions. Serve hot with crackers. Note: With my cooker, I have to release the pressure very slowly because of the noodles. Starchy stuff will make my cooker 'spit'. It's not dangerous, just annoying and messy.

Chicken Soup Grandma's Way Heathertee2002 Chicken Soup

But for real honest-to-gosh chicken soup the way Grandma used to make it, start with a mature hen. (These are hard to find unless you know someone with a flock of them. If you do, and they will sell you one, you are blessed!)
Put your fowl into cold water to cover and turn on the heat. Bring slowly to a simmer. You don't ever want it to boil! You may add whatever you like in the way of seasonings, but not too much of anything; celery tops, parsley, onion, a clove of garlic, black peppercorns, a bay leaf, a little thyme. You are going to strain all the veggies out when the meat is done, as they will be mushy.
Simmer til the meat is tender, from 1 to 3 hours depending on the age of the bird. The meat should be almost falling off the bone but not quite.
Remove it from the heat and let it cool in the broth till you can handle it. Remove the bird from the broth and put it on a platter. Pick the meat off the bones and dice it, discarding the fatty skin and the bones. (You might have enough meat for salad as well as soup.)
Strain the broth and discard the flavoring veggies. Cover and refrigerate the broth and meat separately til ready to make the soup.
Cut up the vegetables you choose to use in your soup. Heat the broth to boiling and add the vegetables, a half-cup of rice, and a teaspoon of salt (taste to adjust the seasoning). Turn the heat down and simmer til the rice is done and the vegetables are tender, about 1/2 hour to 40 minutes.
If you want noodles instead, cook them separately, drain and add to the soup when the vegetables are done.
Add the meat and heat just til very hot. Again, never boil soup!
Serve with pride.

Chicken Soup Leo Benson Chicken Soup

1. start with a roasting hen. Have a great roast chicken meal. Pick the extra meat off and save for chicken salad or whatever.
2. Place chicken in stock pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a slow simmer. Simmer several hours, or do it in a crock pot all day.
3. Remove bones (the carcass should have fallen apart by now). Strain broth, reserve.
4. pick out all the meat, set aside, discard bones.
Refrigerate stock overnight. Next morning, skim off fat.
5. Now make soup!
I add:
chicken bouillion to taste
the reserved meat
chopped carrots, celery, and onions
1 or two chopped garlic cloves

then I decide on the starch--
dumplings, or
egg noodles

right before serving I add a few pinches of nutmeg

If I'm doing dumplings (bisquick dumplings) i may stir in a can of creamed corn.

Chicken Soup from Left-Overs Cruzette Chicken Recipes Wanted

If you've made the roasted chicken you will most likely have left over chicken and vegetables. Now it's time to make a pot of soup.

Place the left over chicken carcass and any other left over chicken pieces in a large stockpot and cover with water. Bring to boil and let simmer for 30-40 minutes. Let cool slightly, then remove the chicken bones and carcass; allow cooling thoroughly on a large plate.

Once the chicken is cool enough to handle remove all meat from bones as possible and add to stock. Toss out the skin and the bones. If I have any chicken gravy left over I will add this to the stock as well. If the stock doesn't have much flavor you can add a can or two of chicken broth.

To the stock add a couple of celery sticks chopped and about a half of an onion finely chopped (I cheat and used dried minced onions). Salt and pepper to taste.

If I am making chicken vegetable soup, I will dice up any of the left over vegetables from my roasted chicken or add fresh diced potatoes and carrots. Carrots are better sliced into small rounds, they will cook faster and fit better on a spoon too

Left over rice is great in chicken vegetable soup as well (must be cooked rice).

If I am making chicken noodle soup, I don't add the potatoes and add a couple of handfuls of dried noodles (be careful not to add too many, noodles expand as they cook).

Let the soup simmer about 30 to 40 minutes or put in a crock-pot and let cook all day. Just before serving, I like to thicken my broth a little bit with some corn starch and water, not too thick, it's soup not gravy

Soup and stews are always best re-heated, it gives the flavors a chance to meld. Let cool and refrigerate if you want to serve it within the next couple of days. Soup is great to take along camping, it's already cooked so all you have to do is heat and serve.

Note you can skim off any fat once it has chilled if you are health conscious.

Tortilla Soup babe1002 Southwest recipes

1 can refried beans
1 can chicken stock
(diced leftover chicken, sausage, whatever, could also be added)

Stir together and heat through. Ladle into a bowl with some tortilla chips in the bottom and pass the usual condiments for toppings: avocado, tomato, peppers, green onion, sour cream, grated cheese and salsa. For tasty low salt chips, cut tortillas into 6ths or 8ths, place on a cookie sheet, spray with a bit of oil and bake until crispy. I haven't tried, but I'll bet you could toast them over the outdoor grill.

Pork Rib Jambalaya w/ burnt sugar Cajun Cook Pork Rib Jambalaya w/ burnt sugar

Neighbor came home with a couple of wild pigs he killed.

1/2 cup chopped onions
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup raw rice (med grain is best)
3 cups water
1/4 cup bell pepper chopped
cooking oil

Add raw rice to pot along with the water stir well . Cover and cook low and slow (PLUK PLUK) until tenderdone. Add oniontops and parsley and cook for 15 minutes longer. If mixture cooks down too much and starts to fry, add a little more water. The sugar helps cut the onion flavor and adds a unique taste.  20051029

Pumpkin Soup Matt & Jerie Does anyone have a recipe for pumpkin soup-

Cook together 8-10 minutes:
1 chopped onion
½ lb. Sliced mushrooms
2 T. butter

Stir in:
2 T. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 T curry powder

3 C. chicken broth
2 C. cooked pumpkin
1 T. honey

Simmer for 15 minutes.

Then add:
1 C. evaporated milk

The above is the original recipe- to use full cans, I use:
2 cans chicken broth (non-fat is fine)
1 can cooked pumpkin (size that makes 1 pumpkin pie)
1 regular size can evaporated milk (12 oz.)
This makes it a bit less curry and pumpkin flavored
I added a bit more salt and pepper right before serving as well.
Next time I think I will increase the mushrooms slightly. 20041002

Queen Victoria Soup KariG English Cuisine in Your RV?

Here's my recipe for Queen Victoria Soup; it's a special favorite comfort food for chilly fall nights and very cold winter days. I have changed the original recipe because we favor chicken over duck or goose.

1 chicken [3-5 pounds] or six chicken breasts
8 cups chicken stock [can substitute with canned broth]
1 bunch parsley [or 3 Tbs. parsley]
3 Cups bread crumbs
4 Cups heavy cream
Put the chicken in a large pot; cover with stock and parsley. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 1 hour. [May shift to a crock pot at time for simmer]
Lift the chicken from the pot, skin, bone and cut the meat into small pieces.
Add the bread crumbs and cut-up chicken to the broth. Mix in the cream, adjust the seasoning if necessary.
Reheat but do not boil and serve.

For a thinner soup you may add some milk. For a short cut you may use canned chicken instead of whole chicken. Don't leave out the bread crumbs because this thickens the soup.

To make bread crumbs: toast 6-8 slices bread; microwave the slices on high for three minutes and roll them into bread crumbs with a rolling pin.

Chowder in a Sourdough Bowl Golden_HVAC I need an onion cracker spread

Have you ever served clam chowder in a sourdough bowl? Using a 6" - 8" diameter sourdough loaf, cut out the center, leaving some of the bread inside, and make a 4" - 5" diameter bowl to serve the thick clam chowder. Try this at home before inviting a lot of friends over for dinner. You need the right kind of sourdough loaf, (dense side walls, hard crust) and thick clam chowder, so it does not run out through the pores in the bread.

Yankee or White Bean Soup TN Traveler Ham & Beans & Cornbread

Having lived on both sides of the Mason-Dixson line, I'll include 2 of the versions I use.

Yankee Bean Soup:
1# navy beans, soaked overnight and drained
1/2 pound of bacon or ham, diced
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 large onion, diced
Dump ingredients in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until beans are soft. Mash some of the beans to thicken the soup. Serve with cornbread made with yellow cornmeal and sugar.

White Beans:
1# great northern beans, soaked overnight and drained
1/2# country ham pieces or 1 smoked ham hock
1 large onion, diced
Dump ingredients in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a
boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until beans are very soft and liquid is reduced by almost half. De-bone ham hock. Serve with cornbread made with white cornmeal and buttermilk.

Personally, I like both versions but with the addition of a clove of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Fresh chopped onion is my garnish of choice. And vine-ripened sliced tomatoes make a great side.

Ham Bone Bean Soup Heathertee2002 Honey Baked Ham Bone......any ideas-----

You can buy a bag of mixed beans that has a very good recipe right on it. I like to simmer the bone with onion, celery and bay leaf until everything falls apart. If any meat, save it aside and strain the broth. Add your pre-soaked beans and simmer until tender, then all the vegetables you like, cut in pieces. When they are nearly tender, add in the cubed meat. This freezes great; heat in the microwave for a quick winter meal.

Italian Lentil Soup mychrissy Can I make Lentil soup

4 cloves chopped garlic
2 medium onions (chopped)
l/4- l/2 lb. prosciutto (Italian ham) chopped small

Then add a package of lentils, sauté in with the olive oil mixture.

Also small amount of elbow macaroni

Add to this mixture two large cans chicken broth (or you can make your own broth).

Serve warm and add grated parmesan cheese (not from a can) over the top.

Italian Wedding Soup Kitchnkabodl italian wedding soup

6 Quarts chicken stock
Pick apart the chicken and add the meat back to the broth.
Add the following: Little meat balls 1 pound ground beef 1 pound ground pork 1 pound ground veal 2 cups soft fresh breadcrumbs
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/2 cup freshly grated parmigianno reggiano cheese
5 minced garlic cloves sautéed in olive oil until soft chopped fresh basil (adjust for as much as you like..)
salt pepper
Soak breadcrumbs in a little milk for 10 minutes or until soggy.
Add rest of ingredients and mix with hands.
Form into tiny meatballs no more than 1" in diameter.
Escarole (or other greens) You'll need a lot as this cooks down to nothing.
For 6 quarts you'll need at least 3 pounds or 3 very large heads. Chop the green leafy parts and discard the really white stems. The stems in my opinion are not very tasty and turn mushy. We always use escarole but I know of others who get good results with endive. I would not recommend spinach though. It has a distinct flavor that does not go well in this soup.
Add the meatballs and greens to the chicken soup. Simmer low for approx. 1 hour. Add up to 1 pound cooked baby pastina or other small pasta before serving. I don't like to add this ahead of time because the pasta gets overcooked and mushy. Sometimes we even serve the pasta on the side in a bowl with a little olive oil to keep it from sticking. Soup can be frozen without the pasta. Serve with a bowl of grated parmigianno.

Frogmore Stew Recipe Kiwi_too Rescued Recipes(a home for the orphans)

Here is a Frogmore Stew recipe, based on the South Carolina Wildlife Cookbook version, which serves 30 people.


10 pounds smoked beef sausage in long links
2 dozen ears shucked, cleaned corn
1/2 bushel crabs
15 pounds shrimp, headed
2 small boxes of seafood seasoning (which brand is best has been a matter of friendly controversy)

Use a big, 20-gallon pot filled to about half full with water. The best thing is to clean the crabs before you put them in the pot. You can use the whole crab, too, but it takes up more room in the pot and is messier to eat.
Cut sausages in one-inch sections. Bring water to a boil put sausage and seasoning bags in water and let boil for about 10 minutes or so.
Put the corn in and bring back to a boil. Then put the crabs in and bring back to a boil. Finally, add the shrimp, and when the water comes back to a boil, pour off water. Serves 30 people

I brown 3 lbs of hamburger. Slice and sauté an onion, green bell pepper and some garlic. Add together.

Then I add:

1 can corn.
1 can green beans
1 can hominy
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can Ranch Style Beans
1 can Ro-tel
2 small cans of mushrooms.

Plus whatever spices you like. I think I will try taco seasoning next time. Use whatever you want.

Either put in a really big pot and cook on the stove top, or put in a really big dish and cook in the oven. Or a big crock pot.

You can add shredded potatoes or tater tots (if baking in oven).
You can use macaroni. Or salsa. Or really you can just add or delete ingredients as you have taste for or have on hand. Top with cheese.    It's very flexible. I really like the taste and texture and just by changing ingredients or spices & seasonings it is always just a little bit different.

Beef Stew with Mushrooms arthurmcw No Peak Stew

Here is a recipe perfect to make ahead before camping.

Stew Meat (around 2 lbs)
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 package Lipton's dry onion soup mix
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1 package fresh sliced mushrooms

(It calls to add a little water but it gets a little too watery so I would leave that out)

Mix everything together and bake around 275 to 300 for 3 hours.

It makes a its own gravy so make mashed potatoes or rice to go with it.

Beef Stew with Veggies C1YFDBFD No Peak Stew

The basics are: meat, vegetables, and soup. Can be made in the oven, on top of the stove, or over coals in a dutch oven. Cook covered with a tight lid at low temperature (275-300) for a long time. I always brown the meat, but you don't have to, and I add potatoes, carrots, celery and onions with concentrated tomato soup. There is no right or wrong way to make it. Put whatever you like in it.


I actually can't take credit for this great tasting beef stew.
I took two recipes that were on this forum and took the best of each and combined them...the results are "a great tasting beef stew"

Serves: 6 to 8 people.

2 pounds stew meat (beef) cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 cup flower
sprinkle of salt...sprinkle of pepper
some olive oil

1... teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1... clove minced garlic or 1 tablespoon powered garlic.
1... bay leaf
1... teaspoon paprika
1... teaspoon salt
1... teaspoon pepper
4... carrots...cut up
3... potatoes...cut up
2... onions....cut up
1... celery....cut up
1... cup frozen peas
1...10 oz can of celery soup
1...10 oz can mushroom soup
2...10 oz cans beef consume
1...cup water

Cut the beef into 1/2 inch cubes...sprinkle some salt and pepper...
put the cubed meat and flour into a bowel with a lid on it,
shake well to coat the meat with flour.

Brown the cubed meat in a large hot frying pan with olive oil...
put the browned meat on a paper towel, pat dry, to get rid of the oil...after this put the meat into your crock pot..

add all the other ingredients to the crock pot and with a big wooden spoon MIX WELL...

Cover and cook on...LOW for 10 to 12 hours
                   HIGH for 4 to 6 hours
                (I cooked on high for 6 hours)

I think you could also cook this stew easily on your stove top,
I would cover and cook on simmer for about 2 to 3 hours or until the meat and veggies are tender...

This Stew is as good as it gets when you want some beef stew...

Good rainy day cooking to all my RVing friends...

Stewed Rabbit Heathertee2002 Any recipes for Rabbit

Use gloves when you skin that rabbit! Tularemia is not a joke.
My dad used to hunt rabbit and squirrel in the Fall, when they are at their best, fat and tasty. Cut them up like chicken and brown them a little in some oil in a heavy pot; then add onion, garlic, bay leaf, a little salt and pepper, a can of chicken stock and some white wine, and let them simmer along for a couple hours until the meat is very tender. Like all stews, this is better made the day before. Serve this with lots of crusty bread to mop up the juices.

Philadelphia Beef Stew (variation) Mr_Pace BEEF STEW

My mother would always brown the cubed meat first. Then added all the veggies and a LARGE can of V-8 juice. We hardly ever had any leftovers.

Beef Stew Leo Benson BEEF STEW

Flour and season stew beef (or buy a better cut and cube it yourself). Brown, drain, place in crock pot. Add peeled cubed potatoes, carrots, a rib of celery cut in 1 inch pieces. Add peeled pearl onions, or dice a large onion. Add a cup or so of button mushrooms, washed. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup, undiluted. Add a packet of Lipton onion soup mix, and a bay leaf. Add a half cup of sherry or sweet red wine. Add a Tbsp of mixed herbs, I like thyme, marjoram, savory. Let cook all day, you will be drooling by dinner time.

I like barley too but I use it in lamb stew. Basically same recipe as above but no soup or onion mix. I use about 3 beef bouillon cubes and 3 chicken bouillon cubes, and about 2 to 3 cups water. Add washed barley, check a few times, if it absorbs too much liquid, add more water. I don't use tomatoes in either recipe because I don't like them, i prefer a more "gravy-ish" flavor than tomato.

TURKEY CHILI - TEX-MEX SOUTHERN   Turkey Chili - Tex-Mex Southern

Here is a chili recipe for our friends who prefer poultry to beef or pork. I gave this to someone in Kansas a few years ago who was cooking for a bunch of hunters. They loved it. (wonder if they were turkey hunters?)
Yield: 4 servings

       2       Turkey thighs
       1 cp    Boiling water
      28 oz    Tomatoes with liquid
       2       Large onions; chopped
       3       Green peppers; seeded/chopped
       2 cl    Garlic; minced
       2 ts    Chili powder; or more
1 1/2 ts       Cumin
    1/2 ts      Dried oregano
                Salt & fresh-ground pepper
    1/4 cp      Extra sharp shredded cheese; Cheddar, jack, optional

Put turkey thighs on a chopping board; slice meat away from the bones. Cut meat in 1-inch cubes, discard skin. Spray a non-stick pot (or pressure cooker) with cooking spray for no-fat frying. Add cubed meat. Brown over moderate heat in its own melted fat (no added oil needed). Remove from flame and stir boiling water into juices in pot. Pour liquid into a cup, set aside until fat rises to surface. With a bulb-type baster, skim off and discard surface fat. Return fat-skimmed liquid to pot. (Bones may be added for flavor and removed before serving.) Add all remaining ingredients except cheese. Cover, simmer over low heat until tender, about 1 hour in conventional pot, or 20 minutes in pressure cooker. Uncover, continue to simmer until most of the liquid evaporates and chili is thick. Spoon into serving dish. Top with cheese.

   1 cn      16 oz. Contadina tomato sauce
   2 tb      Bell pepper, chopped

(This is REAL Chili --- So, No -- There Ain't No Beans !)
Grind up 4 pounds of fresh road-kill. (Note: sometimes, due to the condition of the road-kill,
grinding up may not be necessary). Just about anything is acceptable (armadillo, rabbit, possum, chicken, unidentified...), but stay away from skunks since their odoriferousness may have a negative effect on the final result. If you live in an area where there's not much highway traffic, or where urbanization has scared off all the critters, and your neighbors keep their pets indoors, then you can use (all) the following meat as a substitute:

    2 lbs.      ground beef (chili grind)
    1 lb.       venison (chili grind) .. pork is ok
    1 lb.       ground Italian sausage
    12 oz.       Mexican chorrizo sausage

Mix all the meat in a large kettle. If using the "substitute" ingredients above, then cut open the
chorrizo wrapping and squeeze out the contents into the mixture of the 4 lbs. of other meats.
Brown the meat, stirring occasionally to mix well. Once the meat has browned, add the tomato
sauce, beer (or wine) and all of the seasonings. It is a good idea at this early juncture to use only half of the chili pepper and oregano and reserve the rest until later so that you can season to your taste. Cook over low-medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook covered for 1 hour, stirring from time to time. Sample for taste, increase seasoning as desired, and cook on low for another hour, stirring occasionally. Sample again and add additional cumin, chili pepper, oregano, Jalapenos or critters to suit your taste; turn off heat and place in the refrigerator over night. Reheat on the following day and serve. For an especially tasty presentation, serve up in bowls and sprinkle the top with chopped white onions and shredded Monterrey Jack and cheddar cheeses. Feeds 6 to 8. Enjoy!

Sidewalk Chili Fanman Not so quick chili - with secret ingredient

Sounds kind of like my "sidewalk chili." It's real simple once you get your chili all mixed up. Or you can just use a can of Hormel chili. Here's how:
Mix ingredients together.
Or, if you're in a hurry, open a can of chili. (Hormel works best)
Place chili in a zip lock bag.
Throw bag on the sidewalk or drive way.
After a few minutes, depending on the temperature outside, pick up bag and serve.

Just some hints though:
1. Weather must be hot for this to be a hot meal.
2. Asphalt will usually cook faster than concrete.
3. Do not place where there is a lot of traffic as you might burst your bag or some hungry person might steal it.
4. Kind of resembles something else while it's cooking so make sure you don't gross anyone out when you open the bag and start eating the chili.

Chili  Leo Benson need a good chili recipe

1 can Manwich
1 lb lean ground beef
1 lg sweet onion, chopped
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder, or the real thing to your taste
1 can finely chopped tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup beer
1 can red kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can chili beans

Simmer all day.
Secret ingredient to make sure kids will eat it:
1 pkg of baby smoky links or Hilshire Farms smoked and cheddar cocktail franks. Yum.

I have made this in a Dutch oven outside for campouts. Sometimes I like to add sliced kielbasa. I have also mixed up cornbread and after the chili is done, bake the cornbread on top, like a crust. Just need to add more coals to the top vs. the bottom, so the cornbread cooks and the bottom does not burn.

Three Bean Chili   Chili - new flavored tomatoes

It's not good Chili unless it has 3 different kinds of beans in it....

2 lb Ground beef or chopped steak
1 cup chopped onion
1 14.5 oz can whole tomatoes, chopped
1 cup dry red wine
4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp seasoned (or black) pepper
15 oz can black beans
15 oz can red kidney beans
15 oz can pinto beans

Brown meat on medium heat and a cup of chopped onion. Cook for at least 5 minutes or until browned stirring often. Cut up into small pieces a 14.5 ounce can of whole tomatoes and put this (including the juice) into a dish. For some reason, using diced tomatoes doesn't come out as well. Stir in 1 cup dry red wine (real wine, not cooking wine), chili powder, garlic powder, ground cumin, oregano and basil, sugar, salt and pepper. Drain and rinse the beans. Once meat and onions are ready, add all the other stuff and bring to a mild boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes or more. Garnish with chopped onion and shredded cheese if desired.

Brown meat, cook 4-6 hours ---until all the onions break down.

Put about 1 good tablespoon full on your hot dog (it is rich), add more raw onions
and mustard. This is a version of the hot dog topping we got
in upstate N.Y. 50 years ago.

Beans  (Back to Category)

Pinto Beans Ginger126 Need Bean Recipe

Get beef soup bones from the butcher at your local grocery. Boil them to make a beef broth. Cook the beans as long as you like in the broth. Depending on the yield you get, you may need to add water and perhaps some beef bullion cubes. I also add salt, pepper, garlic salt, and onions to taste.

If you decide to do a main dish with them at some point, get some beef sausage from the Chappel Hill, Texas folks and add that to the beans. Good stuff!

Frijoles a la Charra nickmac96 Need Bean Recipe

This stuff is good cooked in a kettle:

This is the quick way, better way is option 2:

For 6-9 servings:
4 Slices bacon
3 Jalapeno chilies, stems and seeds removed, diced
1 Small onion, diced
1 qt Cooked pinto beans, and juice
3 Roma tomatoes or a large regular one, chopped
1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder (or use minced garlic), 1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Sauté the bacon, jalapenos and the onion until well browned. Add the beans, tomato and spices; bring to a boil, add cilantro, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Add salt, pepper, garlic, whatever else to suit your fancy.

OPTION 2: Soak dried pintos for an hour in water (room temp) then rinse off all the water. Add to large pot where you have browned the bacon, jalapenos and onion, add water, spices and cook a couple of hours until beans are done.

Both of these are the consistency of soup, but is a great side. Very close to what the serve at Pappasitos restaurant chain alongside their dishes.

Ham-n-Beans-n-Cornbread OkieGene Ham & Beans & Cornbread

When I have the craving for ham-n-beans-n-cornbread, I usually use white navy beans, but sometimes I use lima beans or brown beans. I like to cook with some diced ham, a few slices of bacon, finely minced onion, 1/4 stick of butter.   
A good slice of cornbread ( with butter or honey or cream cheese), fried potatoes with onion-n-diced pepper, spinach or greens with pepper flavored vinegar. Yum.

Jack in the Beans Jim4me Jack in the Beans

Here is a great way to fix pork & beans that I found on the Jack Daniel's web site a while back. Like it says; beans go with just about anything you cook on a grill.

Dry Bean Preparation Worldly Okies Need Bean Recipe

When I cook a pot of beans from dry beans, I rinse the beans well first, to make sure there are no pebbles or dirt, then I soak them at least overnight or a day or two in the fridge. Refresh the water often. The beans swell and this cuts down on the cooking time. I don't use a recipe, I just add stock, bouillon, onions, a little oil, salt, pepper, garlic, etc, whatever you like. (If I were to cook beans while camping, though, I'm not sure I would be too concerned about cooking time. I probably wouldn't soak them, or I'd soak them at home and cook them while camping.)

Smoked Meat 'n Beans jrf Need Bean Recipe

We usually toss some sort of smoked meat into our pot of beans. Adds better flavor than non-smoked fatty type meat or store bought smoked.

One can pre-smoke some fat (hog jowls, pork roast/rib trimmings, etc) then use that. Indirect heat, low temps, hardwood for smoke. Just to get flavor, not to cook the meat/fat. Depending on your method it will get the smoke flavor before its cooked up. Freeze it so you can use it when you make beans.

Toss in some onions, garlic and what-have-you. Remember its beans not chili you're making. Leave out the chili fixin's.

The hardest part is rinsing and inspecting the dry beans. Pintos work well. Cast Iron with lid works well. They take time.

Slow Way (baked)

Combine all ingredients in a large baking dish and place in oven. Here again the lower the temp and the longer you cook ( without drying out) the better the flavor.
