Hamburger Stew

Anna Mae Kantor


This is a recipe I got from my late Mother in Law when we were first married--umpteen years ago. It is very tasty and hearty and a great dish for the fall and winter when there's a big ole' chill in the air, and sometimes even if it's not so cold out too. It's full of flavor and is even better when it's left over and heated up. And if you have too much, freeze it and use it another time.

Hope you will give it a try and let me know what 'cha think.
