Are you tired of the same old thing for dinner? How about this delicious and hearty Hamburger Stew? This is a great way to get veggies into your kids meals. It is also known as Poor Man’s Stew but there is nothing poor about the taste.
You can add any vegetables you want. If I’d of had some green beans they’d of been in this dish also. I also added some fresh thyme to mine so toss some of that in if you have it.
I used ground sirloin or anything above a 90% fat level when I make this. I just love it when I can make dishes that are not only healthy but full of vegetables as well.

Your Hamburger Stew Recipe does not say when you add the frozen peas?
When do you add the frozen peas?
I would add the peas with the corn. At the end I also threw in a handful of chopped fresh Swiss chard and some fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, and basil), all from my garden.

Sounds like perfect additions! Love the fresh herbs!!!
I used your recipe more as a guide because it appeared to be missing some steps…
I added a can of diced tomatoes with the broth and water. I seasoned it with garlic Salt, pepper and Italian seasonings. After the potatoes were done we tasted it and it was lacking flavor so I added some Worcestershire sauce. This at recipe served more as a basic guide.
We like the brown gravey stew, (not tomatoes,) that is an entirely different recipie. Probably a soup.Each to their own.?
This is stew with brown gravey, flour and water. No tomatoes.
Love this recipe! Reminds me of my Mom’s. So glad I found this! Family loved it! Thank you!
This is one of our favorites for the fall/winter. It is so quick, easy and inexpensive to make. It reminds me of the hamburger stew my dad used to make us. We often omit the flour/water at the end bc the potatoes tend to thicken it up pretty well on their own, and I usually use 3c beef broth and omit the water.

i remember this recipe with tomato past peas and carrots minus the celery brown ground beef pot slices browned beef the vegies and tomat pure and tomato pasta it may have had a can of tomatoes in it as well and i threw all of it in the crockpot pot beef vegies tomatoes in that order—been looking for this recipe for 19 years crock pots are not danish the receipe is american not danish but i liked anyway great easy meal in the crockpot on low for 7-8 hours i turned it on before work and at it was down when i got home so 7 hours maybe 7.5 hours
Made this for dinner tonight and omitted the celery, peas, and corn, but added green beans and zucchini and the thyme also! It was so good. I was looking for a great hamburger soup recipe that didn’t have tomatos in it and this hit the spot!
Made this last week. I didn’t have ground beef only turkey so I used that and chicken stock and a mix of frozen peas, corn and red capsicum/peppers and also some small pasta let me tell you it was DELICIOUS. I used left over stew to make pies with was just as good the next day.
