This recipe was very good however it took a lot of tweaking. I added spices besides salt and pepper (cayenne garlic powder etc.). I also put in 6 potatos and used more juice cocktail then recommended. Although all in all it was extremely simple and quick to make. Read More

This is pretty much what a nutritionist told me about many years ago. I sometimes use chicken instead of ground beef or it can be just vegetables. I generally use mixed veggies and add whatever I want...potatoes onions black eyed peas lima beans minced garlic...whatever! Cover with the vegetable juice and season how you like it. This is as good as you wanna make it. Just put the stuff YOU like in it. Delicious. Read More

I've made this recipe several times and feel it is a great base recipe for stew. However as other reviewers have mention I too feel it needs more flavor. I added a full 48oz of Spicy Hot Vegetable Juice cayenne pepper onion and garlic salts italian seasoning and a little old bay seasoning. Read More

This was great I did make one change. My family doesn't care for the frozen mixed veggies because they don't like everything in them. So I just added frozen veggies we like. We like carrots potatoes corn etc. They cannot stand the green beans. I loved this though and it is added to my stew rotation. And for some reason during the fall and winter I make that a lot.
