Hamburger Stew

Brown hamburger with a jar of diced tomatoes. *I used 2 pounds of burger and 1 quart homemade Mexican diced tomatoes.

Add lots of veggies of your choice. *I used 3 green squash and 1 orange squash, diced, 6 carrots diced, 1/2 a full bunch of celery, 2 cloves garlic, minced, 6 potatoes, diced. You can add whatever kind of veggies your family enjoys or you have on hand.

Add a complex carb or two. *I used 1 cup of hulled barley. You can use pearl barley, or lentils, canned beans or brown rice.

Add spices. *I used thyme, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic salt and onion powder. I would skip the onion powder if you use onions as one of your veggies. You just have to taste to see if you have enough spice. You use enough salt to make it just right. If it's bland, add a pinch more salt.

Add more water. *I used about 2 quarts. I also added a couple of tablespoons of Frontier Naturals Beef Bouillon powder.

Bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and let cook for an hour. Stir occasionally.

I serve it with buttermilk biscuits and raw milk.
