This old-fashioned stew has a slightly sweet taste from the addition of canned corn. You can make the stew ahead of time and reheat it for a quick meal later on. - Clair Long, Destrehan, Louisiana


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (11 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 cans (10-1/2 ounces each) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; crumbs meat; drain.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients to beef mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until vegetables are tender and flavors have blended, about 1 hour.
