This is pretty much what a nutritionist told me about many years ago. I sometimes use chicken, instead of ground beef, or it can be just vegetables. I generally use mixed veggies and add whatever I want...potatoes, onions, black eyed peas, lima beans, minced garlic...whatever! Cover with the vegetable juice and season how you like it. This is as good as you wanna make it. Just put the stuff YOU like in it. Delicious.



This recipe was very good, however, it took a lot of tweaking. I added spices besides salt and pepper (cayenne, garlic powder, etc.). I also put in 6 potatos and used more juice cocktail then recommended. Although, all in all it was extremely simple and quick to make.



My picky family loved this. I have tried a number of stews with them and this is the only one they ever liked.
