Vegetable Beef Soup (Spicy--optional)

Brown stew beef in oven, skillet, or pressure cooker until tender.
Place meat and vegetables in large crock pot. You can vary the vegetables depending on what you have in your freezer or pantry. As well, left overs from a roast with potatoes and carrots, work well.
Pour your choice of vegetable juice over meat and vegetables. Add enough water to fill crock pot almost full. (Probably about 1 - 2 cups.)

Wonderful with hot, crusty cornbread made in iron skillet.
