Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 4 Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 2 cans of mixed vegetables with their liquid
  • 1 can of sweet corn with its liquid
  • 1 can of condensed tomato soup
  • 1 can of petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of cut green beans with their liquid
  • a pinch of salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

Instructions

  • Cut the potatoes into small cubes after peeling them.
  • Brown the ground beef and drain any excess fat.
  • Add all of the canned vegetables, the can of tomato soup, and the diced tomatoes.
  • Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  • To add a unique flavor to this soup, add a secret ingredient- sugar, as my grandma Hazel used to do!
  • Mix everything together thoroughly and cook on low heat in the slow cooker for 2-3 hours.

Notes

Fresh or frozen vegetables can be used as a substitute, but you will need to add one or two cans of beef stock to the recipe. If you are using canned vegetables, you do not need to add any extra liquid as the canned vegetables are already in their own liquid and provide flavor.

    I swapped the beef for turkey and it was just as delicious. A bit leaner, but the flavors are still there in spades.
