Cowboys played an important part in the settling of the western United States. They worked on cattle drives, repaired fences and took care of the horses. Originally many cattle drives started in Texas and ended at the railroad in Kansas.

Cattle drives meant hard, hungry work. Cowboys would rise early in the morning and “guide” the herd to the next night’s stopping point. A herd of about 3,000 cattle usually meant around a dozen cowboys. Plus there was also a trail boss, a camp cook, and a wrangler whose job was to keep track of the extra horses.

Ingredients
2 Lbs Ground beef
4 Yukon Gold Potatoes
2 Cans Mixed vegetables undrained
1 Can Sweet corn undrained
1 Can Condensed tomato soup
1 Can diced tomatoes
1 Can Cut green beans undrained
Pinch Salt
Dash Pepper
2 Tablespoons Sugar

Instructions
Peel potatoes and cut into small cubes. Brown and drain ground beef. Place beef and potatoes in large slow cooker.
Add all cans of vegetables, can of tomato soup, and diced tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.

Finally, add the secret ingredient that sets this apart from your average soup- sugar!! Mix together well and cook on low for 2-3 hours in slow cooker.

Recipe Notes
Of course you can substitute fresh or frozen veggies, but would need to add a can or two of beef stock to this. No need to add this if using canned veggies, as you will be adding the cans undrained-which provides both liquid and flavor. 😋
