My Famous Vegetable Beef Soup

Yay it's soup weather! Being from the south we don't have soup until the fall during the summer we're too hot and in the spring we are tired of it but in the fall and winter I make a lot of soup. So it's been really rainy here and in the 60's and Honey and I both were wanting soup.

I've made this recipe numerous times and everyone loves it. Honestly I would love to tell you that it requires a lot of work but I would be lying and my Momma taught me not to lie so I have to be honest it is easy. The hardest part of it is cutting up your meat and vegetables, if you want to use fresh ones, and then waiting on it to get done.

I usually use frozen vegetables because I like to use things that I have in my freezer. I use a cheaper grade of steak or stew meat and then I let it cook for hours.

My Famous Vegetable Beef Soup

2 TBS of olive or canola oil
1 pound beef
1 TBS Ham or Chicken broth granules
1 cup water
1 - 15 oz. cam tomato sauce
1 - 15 oz. can diced tomatoes or you can use a can of tomato with peppers
1 can diced carrots
1 - 16 oz. bag frozen butter beans
1 - 16 oz. bag whole kernel corn
1 lg potato
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a dutch oven. Cut up beef into bite size pieces and add to hot oil, cook until brown. Add broth granules and water heat until boiling. Cook on med heat for about 1 hour. Add other ingredients and cook until all vegetables are done. 

I serve with hot cornbread, remember I'm a southern girl.

You can adjust vegetables according to what you prefer.

Thanks for stopping by y'all and please come again soon!
