Try a Beaver Patrol favorite: One-Pot "Green" Stew
1/4 lb. beef tips per Scout
1 cup stew veggies (diced potatoes, carrots, green peas, etc.) per Scout
Several cups of water
3 or 4 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. tumeric per Scout
1/2 tsp. cumin per Scout
Heat the olive oil in cook pot until a drop of water boils instantly.
Carefully add the beef tips and brown the meat thoroughly. Pour off the
grease and then add just enough water to the cook pot to cover the meat
with about an inch of water. Dump in the veggies and the spices and mix
well. Bring the water to a boil, then cover the pot and reduce the
heat. Simmer until meat is fork tender and potatoes are soft. Add
water as necessary to keep the gravy from becoming too thick.
The tumeric and the cumin will give a slight green cast to the gravy.
WARNING: your Scouts will only like this dish if they've made it
themselves, otherwise they will turn up their noses at the color. Once
they've made it, it will become a patrol specialty. The Beavers loved
it. (Past tense, sigh. We've reorganized the Troop and my Beaver
patrol is now history.)
