Melissa's Meatball Stew
2 lbs. of
1 tsp. garlic powder
Cayenne pepper to taste (we like a lot)
1 pint jar of Karyís or similar roux
10-12 cups water
2-3 large onions
1 small pkg. carrots
meatballs with first 6 ingredients. Use however much breadcrumbs you
like to help meatballs stick together. Brown meatballs in large,
deep iron pot. Remove meatballs and pour water in pot and bring to a
rolling boil. Add roux to water and stir constantly until roux is
dissolved. This will take several minutes but must be done to keep
the roux from sticking and burning. When the roux is completely
dissolved, if you think itís too thick, add a little water or if
you think itís too thin add a little more roux.
the meatballs, onions and carrots and cook until the carrots are
almost done (approx. 30 minutes). Then add the potatoes and cook for
20-30 minutes more or until potatoes are done.
