Takes about 45 min. to make, plus another 12 - 15 minutes to finish cooking. Makes a very chunky, hearty stew. Adding more water will make it a soup.

olive oil
Pam spray
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 potatoes
4 carrots
2 stalks of celery
1/2 white onion
1/2 red onion

1 can of beef broth
1 can of diced tomatoes
2-3 cups of water
2-3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce

1/3 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sage
1/4 teaspoon dried cilantro
1/2 teaspoon oregano

16. Remove from heat or put on low heat and serve.

17. Allow to cool down and put leftovers in a tupperware container in fridge. When reheating it, add a little water.
