Brown 1 pound of hamburger in a Dutch Oven with 1 cup of chopped onions and 2 teaspoons salt. Add 1 cup of chopped, peeled carrots and 1 cup of chopped, peeled potatoes. A teaspoon of parsley is nice but optional. Then add a quart of homemade tomatoes and a cup or two of water and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Taste for salt and serve with a slice of homemade bread or a biscuit. I often have seconds.

My Mother's Hamburger Stew (I've tweeked it some)
Mix and stir well. Add water to cover 1/2 inch above, can always add more. Add 1/4 head chopped (not too small) green cabbage, don't stir the cabbage in. Bring to boil and turn heat down,simmer until the potatoes are done.
If it isn't as thick as you like, thicken with instant potatoes.
Can be made in a crockpot. Even better reheated the next day. Feeds a bunch. :)
