Hamburger Stew - Easy for a Cold Night

Today is a recipe from my mother, the smell of the stew cooking always makes me feel safe and at home. I hope my children will have the same reaction when they get older. It's an easy recipe for a mom (or dad) to prepare, and the kids will actually eat it! (Yea for bonuses!!)

Hamburger Stew

2 cans Veg All
1 small can Tomato paste
1 large can Beef Broth (14 oz or more)
1-2 pounds ground beef (browned and drained)

Mix all the above ingredients together and bring to a slow boil. Turn heat down to simmer and cook 20 minutes more.

Your tastes might call for a more "soupy" stew, so you may add as much beef broth as you would like. With the above mix, it's a thick stew.

**A note for Slow Cookers**
Yes, you can cook this in a slow cooker. Just combine all ingredients (with the meat already cooked and drained) in the crockpot. Cook on Low for 2-3 hours or HIGH for 1-2.

We serve ours with Texas Toast or cheese toast. So yummy!
