I was won­der­ing if this recipe can be frozen for lat­er use?

Thank you


Do you use canned or fresh green beans?

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!
