Hobo Stew

hobo-stew2Our family has always worked on Christmas so having Christmas dinner together has been a challenge at best. Some could come late, come sacrificing sleep or not coming at all.

Fortunately most everyone has Monday off so this year we decided to have our Christmas dinner on that day and give up turkey and have hobo stew.

Our meal (there were 12 of us) consisted of Hobo Stew over rice, Cauliflower Casserole, Honey Glazed Carrots with olives and cream, Asian Cabbage Salad, French Bread, Baklava, Banana Coconut Cream Pie.

Our traditional dinner is hard to coordinate with 3 of us doing it. This year there were only 2 of us and I am still not quite up to par after my West Nile Virus episode. So decided to make the fast and easy Hobo Stew.

hobo-stew3The recipe has been in the family for years and I do not know where it originated other than something my mother served us as kids.

Instead of using stew meat I have Joe pick out a nice chuck roast and cut it in 1 1/2 cubes. To me chuck has a much better flavor than stew meat.

Sealing the stew in foil and slow cooking it is perfect for the less tender chuck.
