This was a HUGE treat for my family when I was growing up. My Grandma Cleo Stokes made it by saving up leftover veggies (She kept a large container in the freezer), then making a huge batch! It took a while, but I got the ingredients from her!
I use canned vegetables because I usually decide to make it at the spur of the moment, when I have a beef roast cooked. I use the broth from the roast, but I've bought roast beef from a deli and used canned broth and it was still good.
Dad commented the last time I made it, "The best thing about having roast is getting to have stew later!"

How to Make Mulligan Stew


  1. I use leftover roast beef that I've seasoned with salt, pepper, bay leaf (two, usually) and onion. When the meat is cooled enough, I cut it in pieces that are about bite size. I usually cook roasts with potatoes and carrots and cut them up and add them to the stew. If you do this, you don't need the potatoes listed in the ingredients.
  2. Use a large crock pot or big stew pot. Add the roast beef, broth and the remainder of the ingredients and mix well. I use 15 oz cans of everything except the lima beans, but sometimes I use 8 oz cans when I don't want a huge batch.
  3. I start cooking on high if I'm using a crock pot, then turn it to low after an hour and let it simmer all day if I'm fixing it for supper that night. I leave it on high if I want to serve it sooner than that. Stir occasionally when it's on high.
  4. If using a stew pot, start it on medium and keep an eye on it. When it's boiling, turn it down and let it simmer, stirring occasionally for 3 or 4 hours
  5. Serve with crackers, cheese, corn bread.
