"Here's an old-time hamburger and mixed vegetable soup, made the way Grandma made it...if Grandma had a slow cooker. If you can't go home and check on it on a week day be sure to added extra broth at the beginning. A large bag of frozen mixed vegetables can be used in place of the canned vegetables."

I cooked this after work one night, and did not use the slow-cooker. I browned 90% lean burger with onion and garlic, then drained well. I used frozen vegetables instead of canned - I always use fresh or frozen, never canned - and made my own beef broth from a powdered broth base/seasoning, instead of already-made. Instead of tomato sauce, I used fresh diced tomatoes. This recipe needs a lot of seasoning, because it is very bland as written. I was very generous with garlic salt, pepper, and dried parsley. I also added a tsp of Penzey's Beef Roast seasoning and used 1 tbsp of Melissa's fresh parsley paste. Season your heart out!! Next time, I'll be using two cans of diced tomatoes and adding half a bag of pearl onions.

My mom would always makes something called Campers Stew when we camped. It was much like this but a can of alphabet soup instead of the tomato sauce!! YUM. Making this for my little campers tonight.

Kind of tasteless, and it was too fatty. Might want to brown the ground beef first: it was completely inedible because of all the fat when we tried it fresh, had to keep it in the fridge to skim the fat off the next day. Followed this exactly except for the can of green beans (doubt that would have made a difference).
