Mulligan's Stew - An Affair from the Heart

I can’t believe I have never shared this Mulligan’s Stew recipe with you before! This is my Mother-in-Law’s recipe and a “claim to fame” among stew recipes in our opinion.

I always say that church cookbooks are the best.  Want to know why?  Because who is going to share a recipe to their whole community with their name attached if it’s terrible?  No way, I mean who needs to be judged?

This stew recipe bears my Mother-in-Law’s name in their church cookbook — and this recipe, my friends is a winner.

If you have never made stew before, it’s a simple and easy to follow recipe that you can make in your crock pot or on your stove top.  Last night, I prepared it in my cast iron Dutch oven on my stove top while I baked Christmas cookies.  It was the perfect comfort food, served simply with bread and butter.

 

 

Peasant Bread
This Peasant Bread is the easiest, most buttery, delicious bread, baked in a pyrex bowl. It’s quite possibly the most perfect bread. Click the photo for the recipe.

This recipe is my hubby’s favorite comfort food.  Where mine would definitely be Chicken Noodle Soup.  But I have to admit, either of them is the perfect meal when it’s snowing and blowing outside.  Not that it has to be cold to enjoy this! We eat it year round!

 

What Ingredients do I need for Mulligan Stew?

  • beef stew meat
  • seasoned pepper, salt, celery seed
  • tomato soup
  • Kitchen Bouquet
  • potatoes, carrots, onion

 

Directions: Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add stew meat, season with salt and pepper. Brown evenly. Add Kitchen Bouquet.

Reduce heat, Add tomato soup and water, cover and let simmer for about an hour, or until meat is tender.

Add carrots, onion, potatoes and celery seed. Cover and cook for 30 minutes more. If there is not enough liquid add a little water. If stew is too thin, cook uncovered to thicken.

To prepare stew in crock pot, brown meat before adding to the crock pot. Add everything to pot and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

I like to add a couple of chopped stalks of celery to mine also.  My Mother-in-law uses frozen stew veggies in hers sometimes, too.  The other thing that makes this super yummy?  If you can find those little frozen pearl onions, but I can’t always find them.

  1. What source do you use to brown the stew meat? Do you fry it on the stove till its brown? Also once you add the vegetables like carrots and cook it for 30mins then do you put it on low for 6-7 hours like the note says?

    1. Victoria, yes, brown your meat on the stove. To make it stove top, continue following instructions. If you would like to prepare it in your crockpot, those instructions are in the note section. Hope that helps? Let me know if you need anything else!

  2. OMG I have been looking for a good stew recipe. I was watching a Hallmark movie last night and they mentioned Mulligan Stew. I had no idea what it was, so I googled it this morning and voila! I’ll be making it this weekend for sure! Thanks for the share!

  3. I’ve never made a technical “Mulligan” stew before, but I do love beef stew and everything about this looks absolutely wonderful to me! I definitely want one of those biscuits, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh my. This stew sounds fabulous. Meat looks so tender and everything is perfectly flavored. I’m definitely saving this recipe to give it a try. My family enjoys good stew for dinner.

  5. The days are still quite cold here in Minnesota, so a nice comforting beef stew like is nice to have. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be saving this recipe to try.

  6. This stew recipe looks comforting and so perfect for a weekly dinner option. And that cheesy cornbread looks like the perfect pairing. I am hungry now!

  7. I cannot have anything tomato. Would adding a can of beef consume or French onion soup work and give the volume?
    Thank you.

    1. It sure would. It’s going to taste different, but I am sure it’ll be delicious. If you need to thicken it at all, you can always use a little corn starch and water.

  8. Plan to give the Mulligan Stew a try one of the next few weekends, with a few adjustments. I will decrease the salt and kick in some spices Cayenne, Crushed Red Pepper, Tumeric, Oregano and ??? I will look for the additional onions you suggested and maybe another Veggie or 3. Maybe just before finish a little fresh spinach and maybe topping when served with a little raw spinach. “Tks 4 the reci” jHb
