In honor of my mother, who tweaked this recipe for several years. We served this at my house on Christmas night when I was growing up. Great served with cornbread!
1lb ground beef
1 10oz package frozen mixed vegetables
1 can beef broth (can use low sodium)
1 14oz can stewed tomatoes
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/4 c dry onion soup mix
1 T sugar
Brown the beef in a pot (sometimes I add minced garlic and onion) until brown. Drain off excess fat. Add all other ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 20-30 more minutes (or longer if you have the time).
The longer it cooks and sits together the better it is. It freezes really well too!
