A nice satisfying stew. I really liked this. And except for a tiny ½ teaspoon of potato flour it is pretty much devoid of starch, so it’s a good paleo choice. With extra time, it would work well in a slow-cooker. Actual preparation prior to simmering only takes 15 minutes or so.

Since I prefer not to use the canned food the recipe calls for, I took a little more time to make this, but still under 30 minutes. Rather than canned cream of mushroom soup, I made up a white sauce flavoured with fresh mushrooms, onion and nutmeg. And instead of opening a can of mixed vegetables, I steamed some fresh vegetables I had on hand: carrots, green beans and celery. I also had some leftover mashed potatoes from a previous meal to use as a base.
The recipe is subtitled “Shepherd’s Pie” but it is not baked. It is really a meat sauce to serve over potatoes, rice or noodles. Perfect for a quick meal on a busy day.
