I found this recipe on FB as Lauren's Latest and altered it to be a bit healthier without the sugar. I also left out the veggies to serve on the side. Due to the sodium in the ingredients (604mg per serving), I do not add salt to this recipe.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 lbs stew meat
- 1 tablespoon ground thyme
- salt & pepper
- 36 ounces vegetable juice (V8)
- 2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce

- In a large pot, saute onions and garlic in olive oil for 3 minutes or so over medium heat. Sprinkle plenty of salt and pepper over meat and stir into the hot pot. Brown thoroughly and stir in V8, tomato sauce, more salt & pepper, thyme. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cook covered 2 hours and 45 minutes or until meat is tender. Taste and adjust seasonings. Lots of salt, pepper depending on your taste. Serve hot over mashed potatoes.
