I've been searching for a Girl Scout stew recipe. I believe it was included in the Junior Girl Scout handbook that was published in the '60s. My handbook is a bit newer (mid 70s edition) and it's not in there.
I recall we browned grounded beef and added a can of mixed vegetables. I believe it has a tomato soup base. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have searched other recipe sites, but would like someone to share the recipe as it actually appears in the handbook. Thanks!
That sounds really good but I don't recall it having sausage in it. Anyone else?
I hope one of these are it for you.

1 lb. ground beef
4 cans mixed Veg All mixed vegetables
4 cans Franco American Spaghetti
Salt and Pepper to taste
Brown ground beef with the onion, add catsup, add all other ingredients.
If you go to the scoutorama.com website there are a ton of recipes under camping recipes, who knows maybe the recipe you are looking for is there.
I copied this recipe from my Junior Girl Scout Handbook. First Printing, April 1963; Thirteenth Printing, April 1971
Campfire Stew (8 servings)
2 pounds hamburger Kettle and soap
1 onion, peeled and cut in small squares Stirring spoon
1 tablespoon fat Knife

I think that must be it! Thank you. I'll have to try it soon - or at least wait till this Chicago weather cools down.
Thanks, CandyCakes. You rock!
Very few people dig out their Jr Girl Scout book to make this correctly or to share.
I eat a lot less hamburger nowadays, but this is a wonderful childhood dish I'd never want to alter. Kids gobble it up... In a pinch, I've made it indoors, but it does miss out on that woodsy flavor only a campfire can add. :)
