Ingredients:  
1 lb. "lean" hamburger (I use 15% fat free)
1 cup chopped onions (I never include the onions)
1 cup diced potatoes
1 cut sliced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 cup shredded cabbage
2 cups diced tomatoes
8 ozs. mushrooms, cut in quarters
1/4 cup rice (I sometimes use barley instead/in addition)
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. basil
2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
1 bay leaf
1-3 cloves minced garlic (as much or little as you like)
3 cups water

Directions:
Directions:
Brown hamburger and onion, in large dutch oven. Add all of the remaining ingredients and simmer for at least one hour. Let some steam escape if your pot allows it, otherwise it'll be more "soupy" than stew. Stir and check the water periodically during the simmering process; add more water if needed/wanted.

Personal Notes:
This is my all time favorite cold weather, warm you up food. This is great leftover too, so you might want to make more servings for that purpose. You can easily increase the recipe by just adding more of the ingredients.
