Mom's Yummy Hamburger Stew

Sherry Blizzard

Mom made this a lot when I was growing up. It was always a hit on the table! Everyone will refill the bowl at least once or twice. V-8 is the secret! But, I think the addition of the celery seed is also a key. This is a fairly cheap meal to make. Mom made it a lot and it is one of my "Last Meal" requests. This stew is so easy and hearty. Leave the carrots, potatoes and cabbage in big chunks....this is what gives the dish a real sense of rustic, pioneer, and hearty goodness. Top it off with a cold beer and my Aunt Marcia's Tennessee Cornbread and you are set!
