Hobo Stew

My dad use to make this dish when I was growing up and I just loved it. Of course his was a little different from mine but just as good. He would refer to it as Rainbow Stew also. Every time I make it I am reminded of him and remember all the times watching him cook growing up. It is called Hobo Stew because you can add anything you can get your hands on to it and it tastes great. It is very pantry friendly since you can pretty much use what you have vegetable wise (or what you like.) You can also add different meats. I have made it with ground longhorn, turkey, and deer. I have also used chunks of meat rather than ground. It is a great way to used up meat you have stashed in the freezer but can’t think of what to cook with it (or just not enough of it the meat for it to stand-alone.) Tonight I actually used some cubed steaks I had in the freezer. I just chopped them up. If you use actual chunks of meat I would cut them into 1-inch chunks, brown in the oil before adding the vegetables. You can also play around with the herbs, adding combos you like or fresh herbs you have on hand. I just happened to have some fresh greek oregano my mother-in-law gave me . Just have fun and play around with it. The recipe is very versatile and makes a large pot of food. It is budget friendly too since you can use what is on sale.
