  13. stir gently to combine
  14. return to oven for 5 – 10 minutes

Notes

  • We use a large Dutch oven to make dishes like this. Like a stew pot, it is made from cast iron and makes a difference in how the food cooks. These pots are made to be used in an oven. We have had feedback that using a steel (or aluminum) sauce-pan requires a different approach so you may have to simply cook on the stove-top.
  • if you can’t find minced onion, onion flakes will do
  • If the tips are hard to find, our Turky Seitan, other “beef” products, or mushroom chunks are all good alternatives
