Hamburger Stew

I always look forward to this time of year, cooler weather means there will be soup for supper a lot more often than in the warmer months. My Grandmother made the best vegetable soup and she would can and freeze it during the Summer using the veggies out of Papa’s garden. This hamburger stew is another one of my favorites that she would make. Many folks call it poor mans stew but I only knew it as hamburger stew as a kid.

It’s a hearty stew and very filling, serve it up with a hot pone of cornbread and you have got yourself a big bowl of comfort food.
