Hearty Beef Stew

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 purple onion
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, undrained
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
3 cups kale
3 cups uncooked whole wheat rotini pasta
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp garlic salt
t tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
3 tbsp ketchup
3 tbsp mustard
2 packages onion soup dry mix
8 cups water

This was a very delicious and filling stew.  Hubby said it was my best stew yet. 
I hope it turns out great for you.
First, get your 8 cups of water on the stove.  Once your water is boiling add your two packages of onion soup mix.
Chop half of a purple onion. 
 I heard once that onions will only make you cry if you're cutting with a dull knife.
Have you ever heard that? 
Wash your kale in cool water.  Next pull the stem out of the center and then chop the kale in larger chunks.
Brown your hamburger and add your onions.  Cook for about 5 minutes to soften the onions.
Next add the hamburger to your water with the onion mix. 
 Add all ingredients to boiling water except pasta. 
Boil on medium for about 20 minutes.  
Add the pasta and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
Let me know what you think.
