1 1/2 to 2lbs of ground beef (or turkey)
1/2 cup of light margarine/butter
3/4 cup flour (I use wheat flour)
16 oz of peas
16 oz of mixed veggies (green beans, corn and carrots)
I add in an extra 1 to 2 cups of carrots
1 cup of lima beans
1 15oz can of diced tomatoes
1 yellow onion
1 Bottle of B-V beef flavoring (in condiment aisle)
Pepper to taste/preference
Optional: 1 to 2 cups of chopped potatoes
What to do:
Brown the meat in large skillet, drain off fat and set aside.
Melt margarine in large Dutch oven. Whisk in flour, bit by bit, cooking on medium. Blend until smooth. Add 8 cups of water to the flour mixture gradually while continuing to whisk.
Add in all ingredients (veggies, onion, cooked meat, tomatoes, potatoes, beef flavoring and pepper) to the large pot of “broth." Bring to boil.
Simmer for 2 hours.
