This recipe appears to be very incomplete. It starts off with "To drippings, add tomatoes, bouillon..." There is nothing about sauteeing the beef (where the drippings are from?), making meatballs, etc. Also, it simply states "Simmer until veggies are tender" without giving a time. That's difficult for inexperienced cooks like me since I haven't a clue when vegetables become tender, and I don't want to constantly check.


The cooking time does say 45-60 mins, but doesn't state if that includes the initial 30 min simmering time. This sounds delicious and very healthy so I'd love to try it so please help!
