Food Fare: American RecipesMulligan Stew

Also known as American Hobo Stew

In a bowl, combine flour and black pepper; toss with beef cubes. In a large cooking pot, brown the beef in vegetable oil. Add beef broth, water, bay leaves, garlic salt, oregano, basil and dill; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until meat is tender, about two hours, stirring occasionally. Add the carrots, potatoes, celery and onion; cover and simmer for about forty minutes. Add corn, beans and peas; cover and simmer fifteen minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into stew. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for about two minutes to thicken. Remove bay leaves; add minced parsley. Serve. Recipe makes about eight to ten servings.


History Note: Mulligan Stew is said to have originated in the early 1900s, when it was cooked by hobos. The person preparing the stew is known as the "mulligan mixer."
