1 lb ground sirloin (or leave it out:-)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
brown the meat, onion and cloves. If you’re going meatless or very lowfat meat then use a tbsp EVOO for the pan.
When the meat and/or the veggies are browned, add the following:
2 cups celery, chopped
2 cans (14oz ea) kidney beans
2 cans Campbell’s Cream of Tomato soup (or an equivalent amt of trader Joe’s Creamy Tomato (it has less salt)
2 cans diced tomatoes: I prefer the organic fire-roasted ones
bring to a simmer, then reduce to very low heat. Add salt and/or pepper to taste. Let yourself be moved to add 1 tbsp of Italian Seasonings… or Herbes de Provence. The elements marry in about an hour and a half but this gem is good for days:-) Enjoy!
