Eat, eat. Hot. Good food, hm? Good, hmm? Turns out, despite all his fancy Jedi abilities, Yoda needs some lovin’ and kind words, just like the rest of us. Make the M4P version of his stew and you’ll gets lots of both!
Now, there is an officially sanctioned Star Wars version of Rootleaf Stew. Do you remember the radio dramatization of the trilogy? NPR actually hired a famous chef to create a recipe as part of the promotion for the Empire Strikes Back. We haven’t tried that recipe yet, but once we do, I will take pictures and post them.
We HAVE tried the NPR dramatizations however, and they are REALLY good – especially Episode IV. It fills in some really nice details in the story. The other 2 are shorter, and do not add as much new info, but are still a lot of fun to listen to. Perfect for your next road trip to Degobah.
Now, back to the stew…
- Slow Cooker
- Frying Pan
- 5 1/2 lbs Pot Roast
- 1 lb Potatoes
- 1 lb Carrots
- Sweet or Pearl Onions
- 5 Bay Leaves
- 2 Cans Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup
- 1 Package Dry Onion Soup Mix
- 1 Can Low Sodium Beef Broth
- Brown the pot roast in a frying pan.
- Chop veggies, into 1-1.5 ” chunks. (We used the “baby versions” of the veggies, so no need to cut)
- Mix golden mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and broth together in a bowl.
- Place pot roast, veggies and bay leaves in slow cooker
- Coat with soup mix.
- Cook on high for 6-8 hours. (Allow plenty of time, we have found that some roasts require much more time than others.)
(Our recipe is based on the Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast from Food.com.)
