Beef Stew and Garic Mash

At our house we split the chores up. Someone will cook and someone else will do the dishes. When the cooking can be done in one dish or served in one dish this will make one or both of the individuals happy. Another reason I love food served together is because it so reminds me of growing up in school day eras. Many of my favorite childhood dishes are my childrens favorites as well. I believe this recipe from BHG will become one of our families favorites as well.

Beef Stew and Garlic Mash
1-lb. bag frozen assorted vegetable blend (carrots, peas and onions)
17-oz. pkg. refrigerated cooked beef tips in gravy
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
6 cloves garlic
1 lb. Yukon gold or red potatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh oregano leaves

In 4-quart Dutch oven combine vegetables and 1/2 cup water. Bring to boiling over medium heat. Meanwhile, microcook beef tips according to package directions. Add beef and Worcestershire to vegetables. Reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
In small microwave-safe bowl, cover garlic and 2 Tbsp. water with vented plastic wrap. Microcook on 100 percent power (high) 1 minute; set aside. In large microwave-safe bowl microcook potatoes on 100 percent power (high) 8 to 10 minutes; stirring once halfway through. Peel and mash garlic. Add garlic, olive oil, 1/4 tsp. each salt and freshly ground black pepper to potatoes; mash. Divide among four dishes; add stew, sprinkle oregano. Makes 4 servings.
