Mulligan Stew

February 05, 2017

Folks, it gets cold in Florida, too!  Yes, it really does.  I have been making this stew for years.  Got the recipe from my dad, who called it Mulligan Stew.  I Googled it to see what that really meant.  Well, Wikipedia says, "Mulligan stew is a dish said to have been prepared by American hobos in camps in the early 1900s."  Don't think Dad was a hobo, but. . . This is super easy and really good.


1 pound stew meat - cut up
1 onion - chopped
3 carrots - diced
3 stalks of celery - cup up
1 can whole kernel corn - drained
1 can green beans - drained
1 can tomato paste

Put all the ingredients in a pot.  Cover with water.  Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic salt, tobasco, and Worcestershire sauce.  Cook over low flame.  Stir occasionally.

You will notice that I don't chop the onions because my Mr. B doesn't like them chopped.  And he did say after eating this bowl of stew, that it keeps getting better and better.

See that cornbread on the plate?  Well, it's the best cornbread and that recipe may make an appearance in the future.  Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by . . . you're in good company.


  1. Now that's comfort cooking at its best! We have something called mulligan stew but it only has sausage, potatoes and onions - not even a stew at all. It makes you feel comfortable though.
