Meat ‘n’ Potato Stew

My sons are real meat-and-potatoes men, so they request this recipe quite often. The addition of pork adds a tempting taste twist. - Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Cook: 1 hour
  • Makes
    6-8 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn, drained
  • Hot pepper sauce to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a skillet, cook beef and pork over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the broth, potatoes, tomatoes, onion, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add the corn, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
To remove kernels from cooked corncobs, stand one end of the cob on a cutting board. Run a sharp knife down the cob, cutting deeply to remove kernels. Lightly pack into freezer containers or plastic bags, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Freeze for up to 10 months. Two medium ears yield about 1 cup kernels.

    I made it today, and it tasted very good overall. However, The ketchup makes the stew very...ketchupy. When I forst taste. The stew I thought it tasted like a ketchup soup. The ketchup was a bit overwhelming. i ended up adding anextra cup of water to dilute it, and that mare it edible. The ketchup also makes the stew rather creamy. For my person taste, I would just leave out the ketcbup nwxt time as there are plenty of diced tomatoes to do the job. I'm not into creamy beef stew; I prefer the aoup base o be of a thin, watery texture. That's the only change I'd make. Oh, and I used beef chuck roast cuinks rather than ground beef :) personal prefernce, again. Othr than that, this is a relatively quick and simple recipe to put together--yum!
