Jueno's Poor Man's Beef Stew
If you are not using lean ground beef, or if you want a reduced-fat dish but want to preserve the browned butter flavor, brown the ground beef first and drain fat from the skillet. Then proceed with step 1. In step 2, add cooked beef, and follow instructions in for adding vegetables and reducing sauce.
Do not use dark red kidney beans as a substitute for light red kidney beans.
You must use sweet corn for the proper flavor! You can substitute 2 cups frozen sweet corn, 1/2 cup water, plus a pinch of salt for the undrained canned corn. You can use fresh or frozen green beans (cut to 1 1/2-inch lengths) for the drained canned beans.
