Hi,

buy some beef broth and carrots, onions and mushrooms and make a nice soup.

Chili is another idea.

Well, based on what you have listed, you just need a can of diced tomatos and a head of cabbage. Makes for a wonderful winter stew.

Brown your stew meat remove and drain, saute chopped onion and add meat back to the pot. Then add beef stock / water and can of tomatos, allow to simmer till the meat is tender (about an hour or so) (you can also add your garlic powder, salt and pepper and any other spices you may like, I like a pinch of red pepper). Once meat is tender, add chopped cabbage and cook another 30 minutes. Then add your chopped potatoes and cook about 20 minutes and get ya some nice warm crusty bread. Awesome meal done really cheap!

You could also do some stroganoff with a can of cream of mushroom soup, some dried dill weed, sour cream and a splash of red wine to finish atop some egg noodles... very simple and cheap! Great as leftovers!

And cooked simply in some beef broth and water (seasonings such as garlic powder, salt, pepper of course) - floured and browned first - served over rice - simplicity at its best!

Buy some fresh corn on the cob, shuck it, and take a sharp knife and vertically cut the kernels off and add 15 minutes before serving. It's cheap here but if not there then add a small can of corn instead. Bon apetit!
