I am here to say THANK YOU! Your software is great!!!
When I read the description of the recipe program, I thought it was too good to be true (the price, the ability of the software, etc.). I even called your company by telephone to ask if I understood the promotional information correctly.
Upon receiving it and using it, I have discovered that every bit of it is true! (I LOVE the nutritional calculation feature!) Thanks so much for your product and for keeping it affordable, too!
1 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup diced celery, packed
1/2 cup diced green peppers, packed
1/2 cup diced onions, packed
2 1/2 cups coarsely grated carrots, packed
4 cups tomato juice
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt or 3 cloves fresh minced garlic and 1/4 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon ground marjoram
2 10 3/4-ounce cans cream of celery soup or 2 1/2 cups Cream of Celery Concentrate
Brown beef and discard fat. Add the salt and pepper as you brown the meat. Add celery, peppers and onions. If you don't pack the vegetables in the cup the soup will be a lot thinner. Simmer 5 minutes and then add carrots and simmer additional 5 minutes to let meat flavor be absorbed by the vegetables. Add tomato juice, cream of celery soup, water, sugar, garlic salt, and marjoram. The marjoram is absolutely necessary for the "winning" flavor. Bring to a boil and turn down the heat to a simmer. Simmer at least 30 minutes at the very least. I often put it in a crock pot on simmer several hours. It is even better the next day. Freezes well or stores several days in fridge. I usually triple recipe.
