Tempt my Tummy Stew

So in honor of my elegant dinner last night (Huckabee and Me) which consisted of a blue cheese topped filet mignon surrounded by fingerling potatoes, baby carrots, and asparagus in a sauce that reminded me of stew (elegant, yet comfort food, who knew?).....here is my crock pot rendition of Crock Pot Turkey Stew.

1 1/2 lbs turkey tenderloin

1 large sweet potato, cut up

1/2 bag baby carrots

4 potatoes, cut up

2 packets of onion soup mix

1 1/2 cups water

Throw it all in, in the order above, and let it cook for 6 to 8 hours.

The sweet potato completely mushes (for the lack of a better term and that I'm only on my first cup of coffee) and makes a wonderfully thick and tasty base. You don't need to cut up the turkey before you add it as it will just fall apart when it is done. Also, if you cannot find turkey tenderloin use a turkey breast and cut the meat off the bone (discard skin as well - yuck!). I just did this this morning and it took about 15 minutes to assemble. Why are raw sweet potatoes so much harder to cut than regular potatoes??

***I know it's supposed to be a Christmas Goodies recipe, but I am yet to start my Christmas baking.....and with the list I have I need to start soon! This would be great for those baking days....throw it together, set it aside, bakes lots and lots of cookies, enjoy your stew after the madness.


  1. I love my crock pot! I may have to give this a try!

  2. Sarah, no worries about the cookie recipes. I love anything yummy. This sounds easy and great. Thanks for sharing. Don't forget about the TMTT giveaway, next week. I don't want you to miss out.
