This is a stew I like to serve on a cold winter day. It's good comfort food that's loaded with vegetables. I use 96 % lean ground beef so it's low in fat & it's not necessary to drain fat from ground beef & onion mixture which is always messy! I use diced; no salt added roma peeled tomatoes & no salt added beef cooking stock. It freezes & reheats nicely since there is no dairy or noodles in recipe. Serve with crusty french bread for dipping!
