Brown beef and onions in a large skillet, set aside. Place potatoes and carrots in a 5-quart Dutch oven. Add water to barely cover and bring to a boil. Simmer vegetables over medium heat until crisp-tender, about 15 minutes. Stir cornstarch into 1/2 c water and then add to vegetable mixture. Stir until slightly thickened. Add the remaining ingredients. Cool and then ladle into four 6-cup freezer containers, leaving 1/2 inch air space. Label with date and contents. Use within 2 months. Makes 4 packages or about 24 cups.
