  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 3 cups tomato juice or vegetable juice, preferably organic or homemade

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon real salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cubed
  • 1 cup frozen green beans
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, optional

Brown stew meat in large pot in shortening. Discard shortening and return meat to pot. Stir in beef stock, juice, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, marjoram and bay leaf.  Bring to boiling then reduce heat and simmer, covered for one hour or until tender. Stir occasionally. Stir in sweet potato, green beans, carrots, and mushrooms and cook for about 30 minutes more or until tender. Remove bay leaf
