I grew up eating this stew, but it was one of those recipes that my mom didn’t have written down in her recipe box. So when I wanted to make it the other day, I had to call her and ask her what ingredients she uses. I made it and both boys loved it. Sometimes it’s hard to get your kids to eat a lot of veggies, but it seems like any of these combo dishes definitely help!
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 T. ketchup
1 t. onion powder
1 T. Bragg’s liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
2 cans (15 oz.) potatoes, or 5 medium potatoes
1 can (15 oz.) peas
1 can (15 oz.) green beans
1 can (15 oz.) carrots
2 cans (15 oz.) corn
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 cube beef bouillon
In skillet, cook ground beef with ketchup, onion powder and liquid aminos. If using real potatoes, scrub and dice them, then add potatoes to pot and add enough water to cover them (about 1 inch above the potatoes). Bring to boil, then turn heat to med-low and boil for 20 min. then drain. Once potatoes and meat are cooked, add remaining ingredients and cook on medium heat until flavors blend (about 30 min).
Notes: If you try to cook the potatoes at the same time you are warming up the other veggies, they may get mushy. You can also substitute frozen vegetables for the same canned vegetables. If you choose to use fresh carrots, they will have a similar precook time to the potatoes.
