Hungry Jack “Use up the Box” Recipes From Chef Adam Gertler Review + Giveaway - TEN WINNERS

I often forget about dinner until the last minute. I try to keep my pantry and freezer stocked instead of running out to the store every few days. Hungry Jack is challenging consumers to put down the shopping list and "use up the box". Now through December 17, 2010, Hungry Jack and Chef Gertler want you to come up with your own recipes. Home cooks can submit an original recipe in one of three categories using at least 1 cup of Hungry Jack Mashed Potatoes, 1 cup of Hungry Jack Pancake Mix or ¼ cup of Hungry Jack Syrup as ingredients at www.useupthebox.com or via regular mail. Three Grand Prize Winners in each of the categories will receive a year’s worth of groceries.

Hungry Jack sent me this "use up the box" pack that includes Hungry Jack Mashed Potatoes, Hungry Jack Pancake Mix, and Hungry Jack Syrup along with a $10 Walmart Gift Card to get whatever other supplies I would need to try out some recipes.


After looking through the recipe cards that were sent, I decided to go with the Beef Stew with Herbed Potato Dumplings.

STEW
7 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour, divided
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
2 (14 oz.) cans beef broth, divided
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 bay leaf
1 (16 oz.) package frozen vegetables for stew
DUMPLINGS
2 large eggs
1/2 cup water
1 cup Hungry Jack® Instant Mashed Potato Flakes
1/2 cup Hungry Jack® Buttermilk Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix (Just Add Water)
1 tablespoon minced green onion
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Preparation Directions:
1.COMBINE 3 tablespoons flour and seasoned salt in large resealable plastic bag. Add beef cubes. Seal and toss to coat.
2.HEAT oil in 6-quart Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Add beef cubes and cook until well browned on all sides. Add 2 1/2 cups beef broth, garlic and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour.
3.STIR in frozen vegetables. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Whisk together remaining beef broth and remaining flour in small bowl. Add to stew, stirring until gravy thickens.
4.To prepare dumpling batter: WHISK eggs and water in medium bowl. Stir in potato flakes until moistened. Add pancake mix, green onion, parsley and garlic salt; mix well.
5.DROP batter by tablespoonfuls onto simmering stew. Cover and simmer over low heat 13 to 16 minutes or until dumplings are cooked through.
Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 2 hrs

I'll be honest.  I didn't have two hours to wait on dinner to be ready.  I've made similar recipes before and know that the beef stew meat is more tender the longer that you let it sit in broth, but about 1 hour would be plenty. I think all in all, the stew cooked for about 1 hour 20 minutes max.  I also don't like frozen veggies(I've never found a brand that didn't taste-frozen), so I used about 1/2 can each of corn, green beans, and peas.

I made the dumplings and was a little skeptical about how this would all taste.  Here they are shortly after I dropped them into the stew.  It takes about 20 minutes for them to be fully cooked.

I wish that this was scratch and sniff  because my house smelled delicious.  I used fresh garlic and that combined with the other herbs smelled amazing!

Even though, I was a little skeptical on how it would taste, I had no reason to be.  This meal really was good and *both* kids enjoyed it.  Hubby told me that this is one that he would like to be added to the "regulars" so that I would make it more often.  I plan to make it a good bit because these ingredients are ones that I normally always have on hand.  It takes a little longer than normal to make this meal, but it gets my kids to eat their veggies. I look forward to using more of the "Use Up The Box" recipes!

Families count on Hungry Jack for great-tasting potatoes and fluffy pancakes with syrup, but all three staples can be used as ingredients in delicious dishes, such as Chef Gertler’s:
·         Doughnut Bites with Bacon Sugar – make these irresistible treats at home for an unforgettable weekend family brunch with Hungry Jack Pancake Mix.
·         Beef Stew with Herbed Potato Dumplings – two classic dishes combine in this hearty, crowd-pleasing one-pot meal featuring Hungry Jack Mashed Potatoes.
·         Chicken Wings with Sweet Chili Glaze – add a sweet kick to game day nibbles by topping classic chicken wings with a sweet and spicy glaze featuring Hungry Jack Syrup.
·         Green Enchiladas – give turkey or chicken leftovers new life by using Hungry Jack Pancake Mix to create a unique enchilada dish guaranteed to please any crowd.
·         Spiced Mocha Fudge CakeHungry Jack Mashed Potatoes are the secret behind this super moist, fudgy cake.
·         Spinach Salad with Warm Mustard Vinaigrette – whip up a sweet and savory salad dressing with help from Hungry Jack Syrup.
