Gorp -- One Pot Dinner

This recipe is very flexible and yummy. I first met it at a Girl Scout camp out. They made it in a very large pot with lots of hot dogs, Veg-All, and tomato sauce, cooked for an hour and served to a bunch of hungry girls.

I've modified it, and renamed it. Don't let the name confuse you, it's not Gorp as in "good old raisins and peanuts" trail mix. It's Gorp as in a bunch of ingredients combined to make a tasty dish. Feel free to rename it as you wish!



1 pound hamburger and/or hot dogs
2 small cans or 1 large can Veg-All™ (Original soup sized Veg-All™, or Large Cut Veg-All™)
2 large cans Tomato sauce
Italian Spice mix to taste

Brown the hamburger in bite size pieces or smaller and/or cut up the hot dogs into bite size pieces.
Add all ingredients to a large pot and simmer for 1 to 2 hours.
Serve -- Makes enough to serve a group, or reheats well for leftovers.

This recipe is VERY flexible

When I cook it, I don't measure anything. I just add the ingredients until I have “enough”, and enough of each ingredients changes depending on what I feel like making that day.

I've also added uncooked bite sized potatoes or uncooked rice to the dish.

Add them at the beginning of the cooking time, but cook for 2 to 4 hours, until the potatoes or rice are done.
The rice will soak up sauce, so you might need to add more as it cooks down. On the other hand, I like the less liquid version that you get with the rice addition.

Make this recipe your own!
