Yeah! We’re home. Now all I need is the vegetarian base soup and some beef broth and we can make some beefy stew. What I love about this stew is, it’s very helpful because this is a low sodium vegetarian soup and we’re going to use our own meat. Get some cubed beef, very convenient from the grocery store since they cut it up for you. And I’m going to just take a plastic bag and put some flour in here. And then salt my meat and go ahead and pop the whole thing into a plastic bag. And then shake it.
Now, take a little bit of vegetable oil, put that into your pan and we’re going to fry this. Not too much oil cause you don’t want your stew to be greasy. And then go ahead just pop this right into our pan, that’s perfect, not too hot. Just a matter of minute, we will have browned meat. And you can make this meat as well done or as rare as you like. Now if you stir this, like I’m doing here, you’re going to seal in the juice and the meat will even be more tender.
So I’m going to leave this in here and cook up and while I’m doing that, we’re going to cut up some pot pastry to lay on the top. Because why this recipe is so unique is because you are going to serve this in coffee mugs that are of course remember, need to be oven safe and you’re going to put a piece of pot pastry on the top of that. Just bake it all together, lay this out, a little bit of flour.
Now here’s a quick tip for you. Take you cookie cutter and dip this into the flour and then you cut out your rounds. And I want to save these on to a cookie sheet. Dust this off just a little bit and let’s check on this a little quickly.
Now, all we’re going to do is add some stock to this. Here we go. Stir this and just get some more of these brown bits up and let this thicken just a little bit before you put in your vegetable soup. Okay, let’s put in our vegetarian soup. And here we go.
I bought this because I wanted some pasta in here. And what’s great about these vegetarian soup is they save you hours in the kitchen. Everything comes in a can. That’s all you want to do. This is already starting to thicken up. Let’s just simmer this for about fifteen minutes. Now we’re just going to pop the lid on and let this simmer. We’ve got some made over here.
Can you see why I love this recipe? And you will too. Here’s the trick, take just a little. Take it oven safe remember. Oven safe coffee mug and scoop this right inside. This recipe makes about four servings and what we’re going to do is we’re going to just put some water around the rim of the cup and that will seal the pop pastry onto your mug. Stretch this out just a little bit so that it covers the mug fully. And that is all you have to do. Wonderful! You can eat this right now but to make it special, again just pop pastry. Pop this over the top stretching out your pop pastry just a little bit to cover it and we’re going to put these in the oven at 425 for about fifteen minutes. And there we go.
And always, we have two already ready for you. Look at these. Now who wouldn’t want to eat this? They’re like beef stew pot pies? Alright! I want to taste this. So let’s break in —do you hear that? Nice and flaky and delicious. So there’s five minutes work, fifteen, twenty minutes of baking time and you have something delicious that you re happy to feed you whole family. Look at this; it’s a meal in a cup.
