I tested a cheese sauce last night and it turned out delicious, hearty,
and cheesy goodness… And the meat added an extra delicious flavor.

I also used the same sauce to test my homemade Nachos and it turned out as
delicious as the Penne dish.

Also tested this sauce with steamed vegetables and there are no words to
describe the flavor, all I could say that it is absolutely delicious.

I am still in the testing stages with this sauce; I have to try and work on
it few more time, so I won’t post it just yet.

I promise I will once I get it perfect and up to standard to post.

Mushrooms consider being the beef for vegetarians around the world, it has the same delicious taste and kind of the same texture when its cooked.

I am not a vegetarian by any means, I am a meat and potato kind of woman, but every now and then I like to have meat free meals and this one is one them!

According to medical research, mushroom has many health benefits, one of them is lowering cholesterol especially Shitake mushroom and that is one of our favorite mushroom to cook with.
This is one of the flavorful, healthy, simple and easy  mushroom dinners to make in no time.

 I love this dish.  It is easy to whip up for dinner in 30 minutes or less.  It is a hearty, delicious, and a healthy dinner to serve to your family, and an easy way to make sure the kids eat their vegetables at the same time.

One of the key ingredients to prepare this dish is to have a well-stocked pantry, having canned vegetables, and a variety of canned soups on hand will make your life easy and make you look like rock star with your family when dinnertime comes!

My mother always used fresh cut green beans because she does not approve of using canned green beans, but I had to tailor the recipe to accommodate the cooking time I have, without losing or compromising the delicious flavor.

.2 lbs. Beef stew small cut pieces

.5 cloves of Garlic minced

.2 cans of Hearty Tomato soup 19 oz. each

.2 tbsp. Tomato paste

.4 cans cut Green beans 14.5 oz. each

.1 tbsp. Salt

.1/2 tbsp. Black pepper

.2 1/2 cups of Chicken broth

On high heat in a large saucepan melt butter, add beef and sauté for few minutes, meat is not fully cooked.

Add garlic and sauté for few seconds add salt and black pepper.

Drain green beans and add to the meat, add two cans of hearty tomato soup, tomato paste, and chicken broth. Bring to boil lower heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes with occasional stirring.

Served with Rice pilaf and fresh lemon juice enjoy!

Ground Turkey meat could replace the beef in this dish and it is equally delicious.

Okra stew was not my favorite dish to eat growing up! I used to eat the sauce and the meat and leave the okra to the side. (got in trouble for that) well you were suppose to eat your vegetables right??!! hehehe

But the last few years I grow to like and since it’s my husband favorite dish I try to make at least it once a month.

Its garlicky taste with fresh lemon juice and fresh stow tomatoes is to die for.
