Each year I cook corned beef, cabbage, and scones with the children I care for on St. Patrick's Day. But this year I wanted to try a new Irish dish. This speedy stew simmers in less than an hour, is named for the Irish, and can be enjoyed all year round. Mulligan stew is a thick soup containing whatever ingredients happen to be on hand when making it. Ingredients generally include meat, potatoes and a mixture of any type of vegetable that is available at the time.
8 ounces lean beef stew meat, cut into small pieces
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Healthy Request Tomato Soup
1 cup water
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups (10 ounces) diced raw potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced celery
- In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat for 10 minutes.
- Stir in tomato soup, water, and parsley flakes. Add carrots, potatoes, onion, and celery. Mix well to combine.
- Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 35 to 45 minutes or until meat and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
