I'm canning Beef Stew for fast food. Yep. That's right. Yummo.

Tee's Beef Stew

3 sm onions

5 carrots

3 celery ribs

1 bell pepper

5 med potatoes

2 large cloves garlic

2 lbs chopped meat

Salt and pepper to taste

2 bay leaves

2 sprigs rosemary

Olive oil

Broth or water

  • Sauté diced onions and sliced celery in a large stock pot with oil and a sprinkle of salt over med heat
  • Add neat and brown
  • Add chopped potatoes, sliced carrots and diced bell pepper.
  • Grate garlic into pot. Add chopped rosemary and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add almost three quarts broth or water. Enough to cover the veggies and a little more.
  • Heat but do not cook
  • Hot food into hot jars: pint for single serve fast food.
  • Pressure can this size for 1 hr and 15 minutes.

I've just learned that you thicken this as you heat it up to eat.

You mention pints and give the processing time for quarts. You make no mention of headspace needed. You should proof read before publishing.

Thanks Chris for your input. I followed the instruction with my canner for pints on another soup with meat for the time. If you do something different then that's ok too

Didn't know there was a requirement for talking about headspace in order to post a recipe. I wrote this in response to someone asking me how I made my stew. I'm sure as a first time canner I'll make other mistakes too. Never said I was a guru.

Your mileage may vary.
