Connie's Quick Stew

Recipe by  

"Tomato stew with hamburger, carrots, potatoes, and green beans. Try adding a variety of veggies, fresh or frozen. I find it easy to keep pre-cooked ground beef in the freezer. It will thaw in the soup base while you dice the carrots and potatoes."

This recipe was so easy to fix, great for a cold day. My husband and father-in-law ate it up, leftovers and all. My kids ate it but picked the carrots out. I recommend serving it with grilled cheese sandwiches.

Edible. I needed to doctor it up quite a bit to give it any interesting flavor at all.

I really didnt think the kids would like it. My 3 year old and 6 year old loved it!

We made it but with 2 cans of carrots, 2 cans of green beans, and 4 cans of tomato sauce instead of soup. My husband also added garlic salt to the water before I added everything. It made a huge batch. It tasted really great. But if you're going to make it the way we did, I would suggest 2 1/2 lbs of meat. But none the less it tastes great.

I thought this recipe was a great launching pad for tweaking. I used a can each of tomato & mushroom soup to reduce the "tomato soup-y" taste, added minced garlic to the ground beef and a healty amount of thyme, and used fresh green beans. I really liked it, but my husband was less than impressed. I would give it 4 stars, but since hubby probably doesn't want me to make it again, I have to reduce it to 3. Thanks for the post, and I wish I could make it again!

I added about 1 cup of red wine and it gave the stew more depth and flavor! Also added garlic powder. Mmmmm!

Well this is really quite good! I only had 2 cans of tomato soup so I used condensed potato soup for the last can and it was awesome! I didn't use as much water so mine was a little thicker. Very easy and warming dinner!
