Pirate's Shipwreck Stew Recipe

I got this recipe from a minister's wife, and I imagine she used it many times at church gatherings. It's an inexpensive "stick-to-the-ribs" dinner that's quite easy to prepare. Plus, it tastes even better reheated the next day.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 1 hour YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups peeled cubed potatoes
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frozen cut green beans, defrosted
  • 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 cup water


  • 1. In a skillet, brown beef with onion over medium heat. Drain fat. In a 3-qt. casserole, combine beef mixture with all remaining ingredients. Cover and bake at 350° for about 1 hour or until rice and potatoes are tender. Yield: 10 servings.
