As a child, I remember eating this over rice. Little did I know I was eating spinach, just as my kids are clueless about it, too. This is a great way to get your kids to eat spinach without complaint! Of course, not telling them it's in there helps, too.
This recipe is incredibly simple. Using frozen spinach really cuts back on the cooking time. Use fresh if you prefer.
- 1 pound stew beef (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
- 1 yellow onion (chopped)
- 2 teaspoons garlic (minced)
- Salt (to taste)
- Freshly ground pepper (to taste)
- Water (enough to cover beef and onions)
- 10 ounces frozen spinach (chopped)
- 1 to 2 (15-ounce) cans of crushed tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
Place beef, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper in a 3-quart pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover. Simmer until meat is tender, about 30 minutes.
When meat is tender, add frozen spinach. Do not drain. Once spinach is loose, add 1 can of crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce and mix well. Add the second can if you feel you want more tomato flavor, spinach does absorb a lot of tomato sauce.
Continue to simmer for an hour on low.
Serve over cooked white rice, pasta, or with a salad.
