Hamburger Stew

I had a request from Stephen for this:


2 lbs hamburger, browned in the kettle with some chopped onion (1/2 cup?)
salt and pepper to taste
3tbl of powdered beef broth or to taste  (this is very scientific)
1 large can of diced tomatoes or 1 qt. canned
1 cup sweet whole corn
carrots as many as you like chopped
potatoes as many as you like chopped
shredded cabbage 1/2 head, this I add toward the last as I don't like it too soft
Simmer until all veggies are cooked and enjoy with a fresh loaf of sourdough bread and butter.

Other spices could be added but I like to keep it simple, enjoy.--carol

This is very tasty, especially on a cold, blizzardy day. (Computer does not recognize blizzardy).  What does it know.  Chilly morning here today.  I need to rephrase that statement--It is damned cold here this morning!  We have kids coming for Christmas lunch today.  Home chicken and noodles on mashed potatoes with fresh sourdough bread.  Don't know what there is for dessert, but It will be good also.  May have to have dessert later.

Since I woke up this morning, the world didn't come to an end overnight.  I hope not too many indulged in a kool-aid drinking frenzy in anticipation.

Please, everyone,  be extra careful this Christmas and holiday season.  Lot of crazies out there.

God Bless, all----johnnyb


  1. We make that same recipe, make that, I make the recipe. We call it hamburger soup and love it with homemade bread. Comfort food for cold weather.

  2. Thanks, John. I'll make this week. Today, is chili day. God bless.

  3. Minus the cabbage, this sounds delish! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. That is just like my Sweet Things stew, I like mine with cornbread.
