I make something so very close to this. You put some things in that I haven’t been but think I’ll try yours.

I like using Spicy V-8 and tomato sauce in place of tomato juice. You might like trying that.

Pinning it!!

Is there tomatoes in this? It looks like bits of red. Maybe tomatoes?

With a few tweets to satisfy my personal preferences: such as tomato sauce with no additives or preservatives instead of juice (because I am not a fan of tomato juice) and cut up stew meat in bite size pieces instead of hamburger. Because I wanted it soupier, I added 1 cup of water. Also I used fresh green beans instead of canned. Finally I used 3 dashes of pepper sauce for the added kick. My husband loved this recipe!
