Nan Eaton


1 onion, chopped
¾ cup catsup
¼ cup water
1 cup chicken broth
2 lbs chicken thighs (boil meat, reserve broth, grind meat)
½ lb kielbasa – skin removed then ground
1 lb ground beef – cooked and ground
1 lb potatoes, peeled and cut into ½ inch pieces (or hash brown potatoes fresh or frozen/thawed)
6 tbsp vinegar
1½ tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 large can crushed tomatoes
½ cup lima beans
1 can corn, drained

1½ tsp Worcestershire sauce to taste
2 tbsp vinegar to taste
salt and pepper to taste

In a large dutch oven cook onion, catsup and water over medium heat until mixture develops into a thick paste - you will develop fond on the bottom of the pan. Add one cup of chicken broth and stir to remove fond, then add meat, potatoes, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir well then cover and cook for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Add tomatoes, beans and corn and cook another 15 minutes with the cover off or until the stew thickens. It will get thicker when it cools but you don’t want a soup! Stir in the last ingredients to taste (adding a little at a time) and serve.

This is a quick recipe for a family meal. To this recipe I prefer more corn - maybe whole kernel white corn.
