Loved this recipe. Great comfort food that's easy to make (except for browning the meat . . . I always make a mess!). My portions = 1 46oz V8 original, 1 46oz V8 Low Sodium, 2 16oz bags of frozen mixed veggies, 3lbs cubed chuck beef, 3 large potatoes, 1 packet Lipton Beefy Onion dry soup mix, 2tsp of salt, all the seasonings listed x 2 plus a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper. I went with these portions b/c I could only find the 46oz V8 bottles at my store so I improvised. I cooked for 3 hrs in stock pot on low. A great way to boost the beefiness is to do your browning in batches, and for best browning (vs boiling) you should always have room between the pieces when you put them in the hot oiled pan, don't turn until pan releases the meat (otherwise you rip the seared side off) then continue to brown, you should have a very browned pan so after you take the meat out between batches put a ladleful of the V8 mix into the pan and deglaze, then scrape the mixture into your stockpot w/ the browned meat.
