My mom's mucked up hamburger is a delicious and hearty dinner! I always loved when she would make this for us, and now I make it for Julian!
With the weather getting colder and Vancouver being in a quasi-lockdown, I have been looking for comforting meals. I generally find that the best way to find this comfort is by cooking the meals my mom would make for me when I was young. This recipe is for a dinner my mom would make often for us.
My mom would always call this "mucked up hamburger". While I am still not entirely sure what the name is supposed to mean, I do know that it is delicious! Canned whole tomatoes cook to form a sauce with ground beef and other veggies. The meal simmers together to form an almost stew-like consistency which is just what I want this time of year.
It is full of nutrient dense veggies and also includes ground beef, which make this a hearty and satisfying meal. I love serving this over rice to soak up the sauce that the tomatoes and other veggies make. It is even better the next day when the flavors have all sat together for longer!
While the full recipe instructions are available below, here are some tips to make my mom's comforting meal!
