Vegetable Beef Soup
An old-fashioned, hearty soup that’s easy to prepare. Any leftover vegetable can be added and any lean cut of beef works in this recipe. Serve with crusty, whole grain bread.
- 1 lb beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 Tbs oil
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 5 cups water
- 2 Tbs beef bouillon granules
- 28 oz canned tomatoes, chopped (one 28-ounce can)
- 1 1/2 cups carrots (2 carrots), sliced
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 3 cups cabbage, shredded
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat oil and brown meat. (This browning process produces a rich broth, so don’t hurry.) Add onions to pot and cook until soft.
- Stir in water and bouillon and bring to a boil.
- Add tomatoes, carrots, celery, and cabbage, and simmer covered for 30–60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add frozen vegetables and simmer for another 30 minutes.
