“This is the easiest, tastiest, "get better soon" or comfort stew that you will ever make As the title suggests, I stole this one from my Dad. These were his tips for me a long time ago: 1. Cut the tomatoes so that any skin you get is bite size or smaller (the rest will dissolve) 2. Cut the meat bite size or smaller, it will be easier to eat (my sister was picky, actually, but whatever works) ALSO, I have made this plenty of times w/o meat at all. We called it "Fried tomatoes" when we were growing up, but it's really a simple, fresh tomato soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium sauce pan, heat oil to low/medium heat, saute onion.
  2. Dice the tomatoes just small enough the skin is bite size.
  3. Cut meat into bite size or smaller pieces, removing fat if needed.
  4. When onions are translucent, add meat (if desired) and cover with lid.
  5. If you added meat, raise temp to medium and cook until the meat is done. Add diced tomatoes, cover and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce to simmer and cook until tomatoes have dissolved (~20min), stirring occasionally.
  7. Add salt to taste, cook additional 3min and serve with french bread.
