Hearty Hamburger Stew

Oklahoma has been having crazy weather changes which really isn't new but with all the work going on around the farm I have a crew to feed and they always need something that will fill them up so they can keep working. 

Meat is getting so expensive, right now at Wal-Mart a pound of hamburger is $5.98 a pound. That is just crazy. I'm having to get creative with my meals. So I made hamburger stew.

Brown 1 pound of hamburger meat and cut up one medium onion. Season w/ salt, pepper, and garlic.

Now open 1 can of green beans, 1 can of peas, and 1 can of carrots. Drain the veggies but not the tomatoes and dump them all together in your pot.


Next rinse and peel about 4 potatoes and cut them into small sized pieces.

Open 3 cans of diced or stewed tomatoes and dump them in the pot.

Turn your burner on medium and keep stirring until your potatoes are cooked.

While your stew is cooking whip up a batch of cornbread. I used Jiffy this time because I had it on hand and my hubby likes the sweet taste.

Once your potatoes are cooked and the stew is hot add your hamburger meat and mix it around and add more salt, pepper, and garlic.

Serve with your warm batch of cornbread. It's a simple, delicious, colorful, and filling meal that will please.

  6. This time of year most definitely makes me want soups and stews. They are really just perfect when the weather starts to get chilly.

  7. This looks so yummy, especially with needing to stretch out meat! Having the veggies helps make it super hearty. yum!

  10. I love hamburger stew and jiffy has always been a favorite in our house for cornbread.

  11. YUM - I love stew! Now that it's getting colder here, I'm making it more often (thank you crockpot)! I'd use fresh veggies and maybe a different base, but definitely love the combination of flavors here.

  12. That sounds so good! This is the perfect thing for my family up here in Canada when the winters get really cold. All of these flavors together are just too good not to make. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  13. I couldn't agree with you more that groceries are getting a bit on the high end lately. My grocery bill is super high lately, so much that I have had to cut back on chicken. I have been purchasing ground turkey a lot lately. This is a meal that could be stretched into two!

  14. This looks like a hearty and delicious hamburger stew, Valerie! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! The weather is supposed to cool down on Friday and this would be a great meal idea!

  15. Omg the ground beef prices have skyrocketed here as well. I am always looking for a way to stretch a small amount of meat into a heart family meal. This hamburger stew looks and sounds absolutely perfect for a cold day.

  16. That sounds so delicious. I love beef stew so I can tell this will be just as good. Yummy!

  17. This recipe sounds like it would be a perfect recipe for the colder months. My family loves a good stew and having lots of healthy veggies in there is what I think is the best part.

  18. We are having a similar beef creation for dinner tonight. I serve mine with honey rolls and cinnamon butter!

  19. I make something very similar to this when I'm not quite sure what to make for dinner. The family loves it, it is easy and it tastes so good! I've never thought to make cornbread with it though -- yum!

  20. What a great cold weather meal. My whole family enjoys soups and stews so I think this needs to be a new recipe we add to our meal planner. Yum!!

  21. Hubby and I were just talking about dinner ideas. Stew came up, then chili. We are making chili tomorrow simply because I know how to make that. I didn't have a reliable recipe for stew until now. We'll be making that the next night.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments. I read each and every one of them.
