Ground Beef Stew
Overloaded with vegetables and with a juicy tomato base, you won't believe the secret ingredient in this rich ground beef stew recipe.
ground beef, cooked and drained, or see note
onion, peeled and chopped
potatoes, peeled and diced
frozen green beans
can diced or crushed tomatoes
Spicy Hot V8 Juice
I use two 6-ounce cans
beef bouillon cubes
or 4 cups of beef broth
more or less to taste
Place everything except the ground beef in a large pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for an hour or until vegetables are at the desired tenderness.
2-3 carrots, diced,
1 onion, peeled and chopped,
5-6 potatoes, peeled and diced,
2-3 cups frozen green beans,
29 ounce can diced or crushed tomatoes,
1-2 cans Spicy Hot V8 Juice,
2 cups water,
4 beef bouillon cubes
Stir in ground beef and season with salt to taste. Serve hot with crackers or cornbread.
1-2 pounds ground beef, cooked and drained, or see note,
1 teaspoon salt
This can be assembled in the morning and put in your slow cooker all day on low.
If ground beef is lean, there is no need to cook it ahead of time, just crumble it up or break off bite-size chunks and you can add it in raw. Otherwise, precook it and add-in afterward.
Freezes well. I freeze mine in sandwich-size containers for easy reheating as single meals.
