“I found this recipe on the back of a can of Fred Meyer (aka Kroeger) beef broth. I added a can of cut green beans as we like them. But, I have submitted the original recipe. You can add whatever else you like and it still turns out great. I even made it with some leftover pot roast one time. Very versatile. I also used the reduced sodium chicken and beef broths. This can be a healthier meal if you use the low sodium broth and margarine instead of butter.”
