A spicy twist on traditional vegetable soup! Delicious served with hot, crusty cornbread cooked in an iron skillet! Brings back memories of cold, snowy nights when I was a little girl. Nothing warms you like a bowl of soup!

How to Make Vegetable Beef Soup (Spicy--optional)


  1. Brown stew beef in oven, skillet, or pressure cooker until tender.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour your choice of vegetable juice over meat and vegetables. Add enough water to fill crock pot almost full. (Probably about 1 - 2 cups.)
  4. Add broken up dry spaghetti noodles.
  5. Cook on medium to high heat in crock pot all day (4 - 5 hours.)
  6. Wonderful with hot, crusty cornbread made in iron skillet.
