    Silent Rain's Note:

    A comforting and delicious "stew" or "soup" (Depending on whether you thicken it or not) that our family has been enjoying for many years. I hope you will enjoy it as well. :) Because the onion soup mix, steak sauce and the beef base contain so much sodium I do not use extra salt in the recipe. You may do so if you choose but please taste the "stew" first before salting. Ground beef can be substituted for the ground turkey.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 -4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 large carrots, sliced thin
    • 4 large onions, sliced thin
    • 1 lb ground turkey
    • water, to just cover ingredients
    • 1 1/3 ounces dry onion soup mix, I use Mrs. Grass
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons beef base
    • 1 teaspoon steak sauce
    • 5 large potatoes, cut in medium cubes
    • pepper


    1. 1
      In a large pot, saute carrots and onions in olive oil over medium-high heat until onions get tender but do not brown.
    2. 2
      Add ground turkey and cook until meat is cooked through. Cover with water just until all ingredients are submerged. (If you add too much water you will dilute the broth).
    3. 3
      Add dry onion soup mix, beef base, steak sauce, potatoes and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Add more water if needed just to cover.
    5. 5
      Continue cooking over med-high heat until potatoes are done. Enjoy!
    6. 6
      *You may thicken this if you like with whatever you use to thicken broth with but remember to taste and adjust seasonings if need be.
    7. 7
      This recipe tastes even better when made a day ahead. :).
    8. 8
      **Mrs. Grass dry onion soup mix has a different taste variation then Liptons dry onion soup mix so the outcome will taste somewhat different.

      We used wild turkey, and the flavor was amazing! We only used the breast - leaving out the wings and legs. We left out the beef base and steak sauce as well, and it still turned out great!

      This was a very nice stew for a rainey/snowy day. I didn't have beef base so I used beef granules instead, increasing it to about 2 1/2 tsp. I only used 1 large onion and 5 small potatoes and that seemed to be plenty for this stew. I couldn't find the Mrs. Grass brand of soup mix so had to use Lipton's. Don't know what difference that would make. Thanks
