An Old Family Favorite: Mostacholli
Here is a great recipe my sister posted on her blog--the Whimsey Project.
click here to check out the blog.
Since I'm the crock pot queen--I would probably let this
cook all day in a crock pot. This would help tenderize the meat.
one to two pounds round steak, browned, cut into bite sized pieces (today weight was 1.75 lb)
saute the following in pan used to brown meat:
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped green pepper
one large can of crushed tomatoes
1/2 tomato can of water (up to full can of water depending on consistency desired)
1 tablespoon chili powder
return cut up steak to the pan
cook until meat is tender and flavors blended. (cook on simmer for several hours)
during last 15 minutes of cooking:
add small can of mushrooms, liquid and all.
serve over noodles.
want more mostacholli? double the recipe.
as mom tells me, this is not a recipe a person cooking can ruin. go with it. and change it up to suit personal taste! less celery, more green pepper, no mushrooms or more mushrooms. enjoy!
