The hamburger stew recipe from Pillsbury is hearty, and the use of frozen vegetables makes it especially easy to prepare. The recipe can also be made using fresh vegetables.
To make easy hamburger stew, add 1 pound of lean ground beef and 1 chopped onion to a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the beef is well done. Drain any grease from the meat and discard it. Add 2 cups of frozen seasoned hash-brown style potatoes, 2 cups of frozen cut green beans, an 11-ounce can of Mexican-style whole kernel corn, a 10 3/4-ounce can of condensed tomato soup and a 14-ounce can of beef broth. Season the stew with salt and garlic powder, and then mix all the ingredients well.
Bring the stew to a boil, and then lower the heat and simmer covered for approximately 10 minutes or until heated through. Remember to stir the stew frequently to prevent sticking or clumping. This recipe can be made using fresh vegetables instead of frozen. To do this, chop all the required vegetables, and cook them in some oil using a saucepan. When the vegetables have begun to soften, they can be added to the other stew ingredients.
