This recipe and meal brings back some good memories from when I was a kid and my mom was still alive (she died in '93 from cancer).
This is a modified version of her recipe -- mostly I've added some mushrooms (because I love them and mom hated 'em!)
20 oz, Lean Ground Turkey
1 cup chopped, Celery, raw
2 cup uncooked, Diced Yams
1 cup chopped, Yellow Onion
1.50 cup chopped Tri-color Peppers (or
1 8 oz container Sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms
4 oz carton Baby Bella (Crimini) Mushrooms (the tiny ones)
1 cup chopped, Carrots, raw
14 oz can diced tomatoes (I use Fire Roasted)
2 cups Beef Broth
2 cups Water
Notes on ingredients:
(1) On the beef broth/water, you can also use all beef broth or all water
(2) Ground turkey: this amount was chosen because that is how the ground turkey is generally packaged. You can use 1 lb or you could use more than 20 ounces.
(3) You really can use any veggies you want, or add more to this.
Brown ground beef in a medium fry pan. Drain fat.
Place beef, vegetables, tomatoes and water in slow cooker.
Cook on low 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours. Test your yams/potatoes before deciding it's done -- the larger the chunks, the longer this will take to finish (hint: cut the potato/yam in cubes).
You can throw in a handful of black olives in your bowl at mealtime, or add some green olives in the last 30 minutes of cooking for your fat.
