Vegetable Beef Soup - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium potato, chopped into roughly 1/4 inch pieces
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1-2 C cubbed beef
1-2 C frozen, mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, peas, greenbeans)
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 cans of stewed or diced tomatoes (we usually do 1 of each)
6-8 C of beef broth, low sodium
8oz of mushrooms, sliced
Basil, oregano, onion powder, pepper and salt, to taste
Saute onion and garlic with beef until beef cubes are almost cooked through.
Heat broth, tomatoes, potatoes and celery to boiling and keep boiling for 10-15 minutes, until veggies begin to tenderize.
Add spices to taste.
Add beef, onions and garlic to the soup.
Add frozen veggies to soup and reduce heat.
Simmer and cook... the longer the better :)
We also enjoy adding 1 green pepper, chopped for extra flavor!
