I created this recipe when my husband and I were married almost 20 years ago. As a new bride, I was delighted with the delicious results. This is still our favorite stew.
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 can (32 ounces) tomato juice
- 4 cups water
- 4 medium carrots, sliced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 cups frozen sliced okra
- 1-1/2 cups shredded cabbage
- 1-1/2 cups diced celery
- 1 cup frozen green beans
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
- 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can (11 ounces) Mexican-style corn

- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

"My husband LOVED this! We used deer meat instead of ground beef though. It was PERFECT for this cold, blustery, snowy night in Alabama"
