Jimmy's Mulligan Stew
"Mulligan" is a stand-in for any Irishman, and mulligan stew is simply an Irish stew that includes meat, potatoes, vegetables, and whatever else can be begged, scavenged, found or stolen.
Only a pot and a fire are required. The hobo who put it together was known as the "mulligan mixer".
Today I'm the "mulligan mixer" with Jimmy instructing. This is his stew and one of my favorite meals.
I'm certain hobo's used all fresh veggies, so add fresh vegetables whenever possible.
