3 to 4medium red potatoesscrubbed and chopped into ½" cubes
15ozcan stewed tomatoeswith juice
1package Gardein Beefless Tips
Optional: 1 tablespoon red wine
Pour 1 tablespoon of the olive oil into a dutch oven and heat over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, carrots, and cubed potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes, until the vegetables are just starting to become tender.
Add the vegetable broth, drained corn, the whole can (with the juice) of stewed tomatoes, and a bay leaf. Bring to a simmer.
Pour the second tablespoon of olive oil into a skillet over medium heat. Add the Gardein Beefless Tips and stir until each piece is coated with oil. Cook over medium heat until each side is browned, about 5 minutes.
Add the browned beefless tips to the pot and continue simmering for another 15 to 20 minutes to allow the flavors to combine. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
Optional: Add a tablespoon of red wine to the stew as it's cooking. This adds a nice flavor to the finished stew.
