It never fails that whenever I make that food, all the spices warm us up, and leave our tummies satisfied. It's not only good for when you're feeling under the weather, but all the time! Here's that yummy goodness recipe:
Yummy Goodness Curry Stew (modified from Miss M's recipe of Japanese Curry Stew)
1 -2 lbs. any kind of meat (fish, pork, beef, chicken), chopped
1 large can of cream of mushroom soup (+ 1 fill-up of milk & 1 fill-up of water)
Hot Golden Curry (it is sold in a box)
1 can coconut milk
1 chopped or sliced onion
2-4 tablespoons of garlic powder, or 1 pressed garlic bulb
2-4 sticks of carrots, chopped
5-8 regular-sized potatoes, chopped
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 container of sliced crimini mushrooms
1 bag chopped frozen spinach
Put all ingredients, save spinach, in a stockpot on low or medium-low covered (you can tip the lid to vent a bit), until meat is thoroughly cooked. (Mine took around an hour after prep.) Add the spinach closer to the end, and stir in thoroughly. Enjoy!
**It does take the block of curry time to melt down, so you'll want to check every 10-15 minutes to stir. Also, make sure not to burn the stew on your pot! I found this out the hard way. It still was delicious, but took longer to clean up, and lost some good food. You can gauge how the stew is cooking, and adjust the heat accordingly. Each pot is different, and if you want to throw it in a crockpot, you may have to lessen the ingredients (space limitations). If it's done in a crockpot, I'd put in all in on a Sunday morning before church services, and come back to a wonderfully-smelling home and yummy stew!
***Naan is great with this stew, or sourdough garlic bread. For rice lovers, brown rice or coconut rice is a nice addition as well!
