$10 Meal In My New Ninja Kitchen Cooking System

$10 One Pot Meal

To break in my brand spanking new Ninja Kitchen Cooking System I gave myself an initial budget of $10.  I am crazy busy these days and making a good home cooked meal is still a priority.  I roamed the aisles of Walmart for inspiration and finally decided on beef stew meat (1 lb. package for $4).  I honestly didn't know what to pair it with because I didn't want to make the usual beef stew.  I wanted something flavorful and different.  I went for Oikos Greek Yogurt Dips (French Onion $3).  And it had to have potatoes but I wanted special occasion potatoes - you know, the type of potatoes you splurge on!  I was able to find Melissa's Produce Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes ($3)!

This is what you do, turn your cooking system on Stovetop High - add a pound of beef stew meat and a cup of Oikos Greek Yogurt Dip, cover and let cook for about 20 minutes, stir a couple times to even the meat out.  Change your cooking system to Slow Cook High - add half a bag of baby dutch yellow potatoes and cook for 2 hours.  It was yummy.  The only thing I would've done different is served it on top of rice and maybe added fresh chives.  THREE INGREDIENTS and done in 2+ hours!

I especially love my Ninja during Summer - it generates no outside heat and it is so easy to clean.  I've used it already 6 times and it is safe to say that I absolutely love it.  LOVE.

Are you for real!??? This is brilliant. I don't have a Ninja but I do have a Crockpot. Do you think this would work in a Crockpot??

It won't work - the Ninja has a stovetop setting and a slow cooker setting!

Hey Xenia, nice post. I love beef stew and you're making me crave it now.

The Ninja Kitchen looks like a cool gadget...and I love gadgets so I might have to buy it...BUT I already bought a few things this month including a portable cook top which I looooove!

Anyway I'll probably end up buying the ninja kitchen as I can't say no to new kitchen gadgets.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
