Grandma's Mulligan Stew
- Ready In:
- 1hr 5mins
- In a large heavy pot, brown the ground beef well and drain (I like brown, not gray colored meat. more flavor and eye appealing).
- Hold the corn until the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.
- Add remaining ingredients to the beef.
- Add water to cover about 1/2 inch above ingredients (add more if needed later).
- Cook until all ingredients are tender.
- Add corn, cook another 5-10 minutes, adjust salt if needed.
- Serve with a nice loaf of home made bread for a delightful 1 pot meal.
- If I'm in a big hurry, I sometimes start the cooking of the squash and peppers in the microwave so they will tenderize quicker once the ingredients are combined.
- I sometimes serve some form of potato with this to round out the meal a bit.
- Note: I've tried adding things like onions and mushrooms, but it just isn't true Mulligan Stew and the perfection of the flavor balance is lost so I suggest you stay true to the recipe as given.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I cooked professionally for about 25 years and now I'm retired and enjoy being home and making cookies for the grandchildren and other family members. I love preparing and cooking food. This time of year (winter) its Soups and Stews, but I certainly don't limit myself to that because in the summer my favorites turn toward salads both vegetable and fruit. My most often requested dishes are Green Chile, Italian Tortollini Soup and a cookie recipe.
