Hearty Beef and Vegetable Soup   

When I was growing up, my father always made huge pots of vegetable soup that we ate on for days.  This kind of soup just tastes better each day after you make it. 

I kept forgetting to ask him for his recipe, although I don’t think he really had one.  He just kept adding whatever vegetables we had available.

Feel free to add your favorite vegetables.

I think the secret to making this soup so hearty, and to getting the beef so tender, is to cook it slowly in stages.

Don’t add everything in the pot at once.

Begin by placing the stew meat in a large dutch oven or soup pot. Season the meat with salt and pepper, then add enough water to cover the meat. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer until it is fork tender, about 2 hours.

Next, I add the fresh veggies that take a little longer to cook. I add potatoes and carrots first. Cook about 20 minutes.

Add the celery and cabbage, cooking about 20 minutes.

Seasoning the ingredients in layers is another secret to this vegetable soup.

Stir in a can or bottle of tomato juice.

Add the canned and frozen veggies that you are using. This is where you may substitute with the ones your family likes.

Simmer the soup covered, stirring frequently, for about an hour. Allow it to cool, refrigerate, and then simmer slowly to reheat prior to serving.

  1. Even sunny southern California is having some chilly days – at least chilly for us. We’ve been eating more soup as it is warm on the tummy and easier on the calorie intake than a hamburger! Thanks for the recipe.
