Another Meat Recipe

I was writing the other day about a beef stew recipe that I've used for years.

I've also been experimenting again lately with another old recipe of mine which dates way back to when I was living under the poverty of student life. This made for a welcome break from a diet of rice, potatoes, dried beans, and oatmeal— on those occasions when I was able to afford meat.

I would heat up my cast iron frying pan on medium heat or half a notch higher. Meanwhile, peel and chop some vegetables— onions and green bell peppers are the vital ingredients, in my latest round of experimentation I've also been adding zucchini. Once the pan is heated up, crumble up some hamburger and put it in. Add the chopped vegetables. Stir until the hamburger is well browned. Drain off the grease. Set pan back on an unheated burner, add some tomato sauce, and stir. Remove results from pan, and clean pan as soon as you can cool it off (I have some vague idea that cast iron frying pans aren't fond of tomatoey stuff).

Resulting mess of meat, vegetables, and tomato sauce can be poured over spaghetti, or eaten as is. Goes great with a bottle of Leinenkugel's.

I like mine on macaroni noodles, or penne. With cheddar. And sweet tea with lemon.
