Simmering frozen whole kernel corn and broccoli cuts in robust canned consommé speeds preparation of beef stew.
teaspoons olive oil
lb boneless beef top sirloin, trimmed of fat, cut into cubes
to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
cup all-purpose flour
can (10 1/2 oz) condensed beef consommé
cup Green Giant™ frozen corn
cups Green Giant™ frozen broccoli cuts
cup chopped red bell pepper
In 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Cook beef and garlic in oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
In small bowl, beat water and flour with wire whisk until well blended. Add flour mixture, consommé and corn to meat mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add broccoli and bell pepper; cook until thickened and vegetables are tender.
Stews cook best and fastest in heavy pots, such as a cast-iron or aluminum Dutch oven. Brown meat first to develop flavor, then add other ingredients, cover and simmer rapidly.
Add leftover cooked potatoes or thawed precooked frozen cut-up potatoes with the other vegetables if you like.
