  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 4 cups water

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons beef base

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon celery salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground marjoram

  • 5 large carrots, cut into rounds

  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons water, or more as needed


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and garlic in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly and onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  2. Stir in 4 cups water, tomato sauce, beef base, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, celery salt, and marjoram; bring to a simmer. Add carrots and continue to simmer until tender, about 35 minutes. Add potatoes and green beans, simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.

  3. Mix flour and 2 tablespoons water together in a small bowl until no lumps remain; add more water if necessary. Stir mixture into stew; simmer until stew has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.


You can use fresh or frozen green beans.
