Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours and 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 onions

  • 1 cup celery, diced 
  • 1 cup carrots 
  • 1 can (10 ounces) condensed tomato soup (plus a can filled with water)

  2. Add thinly sliced potatoes. 
  3. Over potatoes spread the ground beef.
