delicious green bean soup with beef and potatoes. I cook this in a LG. crock pot but my Oma would cook it on the stove top in a HUGE stock pot... there weren't anything left overs. The last time she cooked this for me was when my family went to Germany to visit with her and Opa. There were six in our family and Oma would make easy filling meals for all of us... I miss her cooking.
- brown stew beef on all sides till nicely browned. (Sometimes I use bottom round and cute my own cubes) Place meat and pan drippings in an 5 to 8 quart crock pot. Add all ingredients ( cubed potatoes, ends snapped off gr. beans and snapped into bite sizes,) cover with beef stock.(I use beef base and make stock as I need it.) Cover and cook on high till meat is fork tender.
- You can add the potatoes about three to four hours after you start your crock pot, this way the potatoes don't cook away.
