This soup is great for just a main dish or soup on the side. It is hearty and delicious. First time I made this for my husband, he loved it and he is a really picky eater. Anytime I have stew meat in the house, he tells me that I have to make my Beef Stew. Note: You can also use canned peas, green beans, carrots & corn if you like. I have tried with both and frozen tastes better.
