Italian Stew

Hi, I am Wanda Ann from Memories by the Mile.


I am so thrilled to be doing a guest post here on “My Turn for Us”.

Evelyn was one of my first blogger friends. I remember her first comment
to me after reading my about you page was
“I have found a Kindred Spirit!!”
She had me hook, line, and sinker. One of the things I love most about blogging
is the beautiful friendships you make. Right now she and her husband are making
their dreams come true. I’m so excited for the both of them.
What fun memories there are making.
I’m sharing a recipe that was one of my favorites growing up.
My Grandma Hoff’s Italian Stew. It’s a good recipe to put in a crock pot and
when it’s time for dinner, just make come mashed potatoes and a vegetable or
salad and you have a delicious home cooked meal. The meat just melts in your
mouth and the flavor is oh so good!




    Italian Stew
      by Grandma Hoff
       shared by her granddaughter Wanda Ann

1 round steak cut into pieces

1 clove garlic

1 onion

1 can tomato paste

3 Tbls. basil

Roll meat in flour; brown in oil. Take meat out. To grease, add flour, salt, pepper, garlic, onion. Then add paste and water to make a gravy and add basil last. Put it all in a crock pot, adding a little more water so you have plenty of gravy. It will cook down. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
Serve over mashed potatoes.

Can be cooked in the oven at 325* for a couple of hours, till tender.


Thank you again Evelyn for having me here on My Turn for Us.

  2. They all look yummy, but that gingerbread trifle looks quite irresistible!

  3. Good Evening Wanda Ann, This Italian stew sounds and looks fabulous. I have a slow cooker, and I know my husband will love this. I have to tell you,coming from England, I am partial to a good trifle and I love the look of your Gingerbread Trifle. First I will make the Italian stew and then I think I will save the Gingerbread Trifle for when my mum comes to visit as she is a trifle lover as well.
    Best Wishes to you,

  4. Grandma Hoff's Italian Stew looks perfect for a night like this. It's so much fun to see you over here at My Turn for Us! Thanks for sharing your Grandma's recipe!

    Love, Joy
