Cover the pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour.

This is a very hearty stew. I didn't have ranch-style beans so substituted a 6 bean blend. I also cut the meat down to 1 lb. but kept everything else the same and it still makes lots.

My husband devoured this, it's one of the best stews I've ever made. A definite keeper.

Cowgirl Stew Haiku: "Yee-haw this was great! I just love Ranch-style beans! (I used the crockpot.") The only minor adjustments I made were reducing the ground beef to 1 lb. and the potatoes, and adding a handful of chopped carrots too. Oh, and the recipe didn't specify what type of canned tomatoes, so I went w/ stewed, which worked out well b/c my young daughter thought this was amazing, so long as I scooped out the larger chunks of tomato, which was easier that way. Dumped everything in the crockpot b4 work, and wow, was my nose assaulted w/ the most awesomest of aromas when I returned home. Can't wait to make this in a larger batch to freeze for chillier winter nights.

this is awesome! Thank you! From reading the rest of the reviews I decided I'd try just a pound of beef instead of 2 and it worked out great. It just depends on how much beef you'd like per spoonful :) I also added a 15 oz can of black beans because I love them and they were a nice addition, a whole diced jalapeno pepper, and about 3 times as much sugar as the recipe calls for - I personally like beef stews/chilis to be a little sweet. Because I added some things, I added two cups of water to the recipe as well. I probably ended up using about a tablespoon and a half of salt. It's great with a shredded cheddar blend sprinkled over it, and some avocado slices! And it ended up being enough to feed me for a few days, and to share!

This is a wonderful recipe that lends plenty of leeway for someone to gussy it up to suit their own tastes! Someone asked what Ranch Style Beans are. They are actually a brand of beans. Pinto beans in a sauce. You might google to see if there are copy-cat recipes, should you wish to make your own, or if you just want an idea to see what goes in them. There may be similar brands of beans that could substitute should you not be able to find them. Walmart does carry this brand, so you may want to check with them.

This makes a lot, so be aware of that when you make it. This soup is good but needs additional seasoning, which would probably be different for every family. It is somewhat similar to Taco Soup if additional seasoning were added.
