Why I Love This Recipe

I first had this when I was 9 years old, and my newly-married sister invited me to dinner. She was only 18 and just learning to cook; I think the recipe may have come in a recipe book she got for a wedding gift. Anyway, 44 years later, she's still married and making this stew. I love it; guess her hubby does, too!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 egg
1 teasp. Worcestershire sauce
1 teasp. salt
1/2 teasp. pepper
1 teasp. poultry seasoning
1-2 Tbl.(to your taste) finely chopped onion
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 can beef consomme
1 lb. (more/less) ground beef
2 Tbl. veg. oil
2-3 carrots, peeled and sliced in rounds
2-3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 jar small, white boiled onions, drained


In a large bowl, combine egg, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, onion, bread crumbs, oats, and a splash of the consomme (1/4 cup or less). Crumble in the beef and mix well. Form meatballs (size is your option.) In a large stew-pot or dutch oven heat oil and brown meatballs, in batches, if necessary, rolling them around to brown evenly. Remove meatballs from pot and set aside. Pour a cup or so of water into bottom of pot to lift any browned bits; add carrots and potatoes, and enough water to cover. bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or till the vegetables are almost tender. Return meatballs to pot, add peas, onions, the remaining consomme. Adjust seasonings and simmer, covered, a minimum of 15 minutes before serving.
