Hamburger Stew

I made my Gram's Hamburger Stew tonight....both my girls had 2 bowls!

This recipe came from my grandmother (who's deceased), so there's no exact measurements!

Start out by sweating some (fresh) minced onions & garlic in a pot with some butter
Add 1 box of chicken broth and water to the pot.
Add 1 1//2 lbs of ground beef and bring to a boil.
Add diced carrots & celery...cook for 5 mins. & add sliced potatoes & parsley.
After about another 10 mins add 1 can of whole tomatoes. Remove cores and mince with hands.
Cook at a boil for 15-20 mins.
Then add dumplings while at a rolling boil.
Dumplins are 1.5-2 cups of flour, salt, and baking powder. Add water until proper consistency (you'll know when you see it). Spoon small amounts into stew for each dough ball.

Sorry guys...this is how I learned to cook it from my Gram!

Edit: Sorry guys/gals...I forgot to put to add 1 egg to the dumpling mixture. Happy cooking!

Happy RVing,

Great sounding recipe. My grandmother did write down her recipes, just NOT in English! And once translated, it was evident she didn't follow them as written, anyway. Nothing we tried tasted the same.

I can figure out a "dash", or a "pinch", but terms she used like a "smidge", "tad", "hint", or "scosh", and have NO clue. Olden day cooking is getting to be a lost art (or language).

That’s ALL my grandmother’s recipes! She was fresh off the boat from Italy and married an Irish man (which apparently was unheard of back then!).

My grandma wasn’t a good cook. But my mother is. She gives us recipes that we follow to a T but it’s never the same. She always seems to “forget” a step or something. We usually have to have her make it with us together so we can see what her “secret” is and call her out on her omissions

I'm with you Tom. My grandmother always said that no-one would know how to make her recipes unless they came over and "learned" how to make them with her...and that writing them down would never be the same!

So true. Gotta have the first hand tutelage. How else would you know (in my case) all meat should be rinsed then dried? I thought she was crazy but I’ve since adopted the idea and now her recipes taste a lot closer to hers. (Btw, She doesn’t buy ground meat usually, she washes, dries then grinds it herself)

Do you Brown the meat or put it in raw? I usually Brown it.
