    Yumo I made this for dinner and everyone loved it.

    Great recipe!  I made this for dinner yesterday and my family really liked it!  I just used one pound of ground beef and it was plenty.  I used a variety of fresh, dried, and canned vegetables and they all worked well.  I also used the French Onion Soup Mix recipe from Mix-A-Meal Cookbook by Deanna Bean & Lorna Shute.  The only thing I’d like to change is to find real beef bouillon instead of the bases that have MSG/Yeast Extracts.  Any suggestions on where to find a healthy version?
