*1 cup carrots, peeled and sliced

*Salt and pepper to taste

*1 cup tomato sauce

*2 1/2 quarts water

1.Brown meat and onion and drain off fat. In a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot, add the meat and onion mixture, celery, potatoes, carrots, salt and pepper, tomato sauce, and 2 1/2 quarts water. Simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender.

2.Make a thin paste of the cornmeal and 1/4 cup water. Add to the soup, stirring as you do so it doesn't lump up. Continue stirring until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
