- This recipe comes from "Cooking Out-of-Doors", a publication of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) in 1960.
Every troop had some version of this stew. As a girl, my troop just browned the ground beef without making balls and always used vegetarian vegetarian soup because of the alphabet noodles in it.
Twenty years later, when I had my own troop of girls, they still enjoyed spelling out their names as they ate the stew. This is still a family tradition for the first night of a camping trip.
