Hamburger Stew

Yesterday I made this recipe.  I don't remember where I got it, but I think it was Taste of Home.  I really liked it.  I very seldom like what I make.  The men in this house like meat, potato, a vegetable and cottage cheese or applesauce.  I'm not fond of meat although this recipe has browned hamburger.  Often I just have a peanut butter sandwich or a bowl of cereal instead of the meal I make for them.  There was even enough to have leftovers tonight.  I used the browned ground beef that I always have in the freezer, so it was very easy to make.  http://cabincountess.blogspot.com/2013/07/freezing-browned-ground-beef-or.html

This is the Taste of Home photo.

It looks a little more appetizing than my leftovers.


Hamburger Stew

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cans of stewed tomatoes (I used one can of stewed and one can of diced tomatoes)
4 carrots, sliced
2 celery ribs, sliced
1 potato, peeled and cubed
1 cup of water
1/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 T. salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Cook beef and onions until no longer pink, drain
Add tomatoes, carrots, celery, potato, water, rice, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until rice and vegetables are tender.  Uncover and continue simmering until desired thickness.

This recipe can be doubled.
