Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 pounds beef Stew Meat, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 package (12 to 14 ounces) dried bean soup mix with seasoning packet (not quick cooking)
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes with green peppers and onion
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14 to 14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 3 cups frozen diced or hash-brown potatoes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking:
