I have been a single Mom for 17 years and because I had to work a lot, I tried to find recipes that the kids loved but that wouldn't take forever to make. I was also on a tight budget, so I tried to make the most of everything we could get. This is my daughter's favorite homemade soup. I encourage you to expand on it as you like, this was just my way of making it. Enjoy!

How to Make Angie's Favorite Veggie Beef Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. brown meat and onion together (if using a fresh onion). You can omit the meat for a vegetarian soup. Drain fat off if needed.
  2. In large pot (4 qt or bigger if making more), pour in juice, veggies, and seasonings. I do this while browning meat. Cover and cook over a low heat. Stirring fequently. If using frozen veggies, I like to put them in the microwave for a few minutes to unfreeze them a little and speed up the cooking process.
  3. When meat is fully cooked, add to soup mixture. Stir well. I don't usually measure the seasonings, I kinda go by look and taste so add what you like to your taste.
  4. Let cook over low heat until veggies are hot. I like to serve this with cornbread or biscuts, but crackers are good too.
