As promised, here’s the recipe for Hot Dog Stew:
1 small onion finely chopped (OR 1 T. onion flakes)
1 green pepper, chopped
1 can V-8 or vegetable juice (tomato juice works in a pinch, but V-8 is best)
2 beef bouillon cubes
4 carrots, cut up like thin coins
2 t. oregano
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. black pepper
1/4 t. parsley flakes
1/4 t. celery seed
1 pkg. hot dogs, cut up like coins
1-1/2 cups frozen peas
Simmer all ingredients (except the peas) until the carrots are about five minutes from becoming tender. Then add peas and simmer until done.
Like most dishes with tomato sauce in them, this is best the next day.
I’m sure it’s high in sodium, but you should try this stuff. It’s really tasty. And my kids love it. And that’s a wonderful thing!
