Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)


Have an allergy to 🍅 tomatoes or an auto immune disorder? Tomatoes are a night shade vegetable and some people can’t have it. I have found it’s easy to substitute tomatoes with tomatillos or green chilies in Mexican style dishes. It’s easy to use puréed beets (golden or red) to add to recipes like soup and stew in place of canned tomatoes.



2 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb Holy Cow hamburger meat 

6 cloves garlic, diced

1 medium onion, chopped

1 large green bell pepper, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped (or use shredded)

1 cup frozen peas

2 russet potatoes, chopped (I used purple)

1  (14 Oz can diced tomatoes)

1 large can tomato sauce

*4 cups puréed golden beets (If doing no tomato, instead of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce use 4 cups puréed golden beets- like to keep this frozen and on hand for thickening soups)

32 Oz box chicken or veggie stock

Thyme, garlic, salt, & pepper to taste

(Any other veggies you have frozen and on hand? Just throw them in 😉I added some okra to this)


Start off with a nice stock pot add the oil then onions, garlic, bell pepper, & celery. Add hamburger meat and brown. Then add carrots, potatoes, frozen peas, tomatoes or beets, and chicken or veggie stock. Cool until meat is cooked thru and potatoes are done. Season to taste and serve with your favorite cornbread or crusty bread.
