The cherry blossoms are already out where I live, but it’s not too hot yet to enjoy comfort foods.  I threw together a quick crock pot stew on Sunday and tried a new seasoning blend that I think is great for flavoring food storage basics.  Savory Stew Seasoning from Alison’s Pantry, of course, is a flavorful blend of oregano, thyme, rosemary and garlic that seasons a soup or stew in one step.  I love spice blends for this reason…no guesswork.  It’s great in traditional stew, or perfect for upgrading a combination of dehydrated veggies and tomato products for an easy emergency meal.  I think it would also work well to season gravies or stroganoff.  Savory Stew Seasoning comes in a generous one-pound bag. Here’s the simple recipe for the stew I made in my crock pot:

Place 1 lb. of stew meat in crock pot.

Add about 4-5 cups of chopped potatoes, carrots, celery and onion.

Stir together 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 soup can of water, 1 small can tomato sauce, and 2-3 Tbsp. Savory Stew Seasoning and pour over meat and vegetables.

Cook for 8 hours on low.
