Warm Soup for a Cold Day

There is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold and/or stormy day.  Add a salad and fresh bread for a complete meal.  This recipe is a great way to use up all leftover vegetables in the refrigerator and provide a healthy/nutritious meal that will last for a couple of days. I love leftover soup.

Vegetable Beef Soup

  • 2 pounds lean stew beef cut into bite size chunks.
  • 1 (46 oz.) can of V8
  • 1 lg onion, diced
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 can or frozen bag butter beans
  • 1 can or frozen bag Corn
  • 1 can green beans.
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 2T Mrs. Dash
  • 4 Beef bouillon coups
  • 2 Chicken bouillon cubes
  • 3 cups water
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup barley (optional)
  • 2 lg potatoes diced (Boil separately and add at the last minute to the served soup. Do not freeze soup with potatoes.)

Brown ground beef in a large pan.  Add V8 and other ingredients. Cook over low heat for 2 hours or until veggies are tender. Or after browning the meat, pull all ingredients into a crock pot on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours. This recipe makes a lot, leftovers can be divided up and frozen (don’t freeze with potatoes).
