Hello Peggy! The serving size can be found on the upper right hand corner of the page of each recipe, but happy to share this recipe serves 8. Happy Crocking!
I was wondering if this recipe can be frozen for later use?
Larry this is an excellent recipe to freeze! I like to use the freezer zipper bags, so I can date the bag and use them in about 3-4 months. I also double bag if the bags are pretty full! Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
Do you use canned or fresh green beans?
I prefer fresh anything over canned, but sometimes it just works out that I need to use canned. 🙂
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.
Is there tomatoes in this? It looks like bits of red. Maybe tomatoes?
Hi Mary, I may have added tomatoes when I made the stew, in place of the tomato juice. Sometimes I use what I have on hand! Make this recipe your own and add what you would like to add! Happy Crocking!
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!
Love it Kathleen when you make a recipe your own! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Happy Crocking!
