From an old cookbook, indeed. I still have a copy of the Betty Crocker "Cooking for Two" cookbook that I received for my bridal shower in 1974. This is one of our favorite family recipes, which I have been making for years. I always double the recipe. The leftover stew freezes very well.

This was very good. It made a delicious supper for two with one serving left over for a quick lunch. I added some diced carrot and used tomato paste with more water as a substitute for the tomato juice.

My husband really liked this but I thought it was okay. Will make again as my husband likes it.

This was sooo easy and it was really good. I doubled the recipe and froze some of it. When reheated it is just as good. Has a hearty meaty tomato flavor.

Very good, very easy to make. I omitted the celery because we don't like it, and added garlic
