Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 1 hour 10 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: Serves 6-8


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 1/2 c frozen corn
  • 15 oz canned green beans, cut or sliced, drained
  • 2 8 oz cans tomato sauce, I used the kind that includes garlic and basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 c elbow macaroni
  1. Combine chopped onion and ground beef in a deep skillet. Brown until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels and return to skillet.
  2. Add potatoes, corn, green beans, tomato sauce, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. You may want to add a 1/2 cup of water at the start of simmering if you don't want a really thick base.
  3. After 1 hour, add another 1/2 cup of water and add the macaroni noodles. Cook until noodles are tender.
  4. Serve with biscuits or cornbread.
