I have a big pot of vegetable beef soup simmering on the burner right now...wish you could smell it!
You don't have to brown the meat...my mother never did, and I didn't used to, and the soup was delicious. But since DH has started helping me make the soup, he does brown it, and I think it adds a lot of flavor to the soup.
We don't cook the meat and then remove it, as the others do. We just cook it a while along with the onions, celery and garlic, and then start adding vegetables according to their cooking times.

We get by with a little help from our friends

hey connie, i think i can smell it! My soup turned out wonderful, but unlike any veg beef soup I had ever made. I usually start out with left over cooked meat. I did brown, and remove, the floured meat, and then ate on the soup for days!

MMMM ... vegetable beef soup. Sounds perfect for the cold we are all experiencing! I'm glad your soup turned out well!

Had I read this earlier (ie - before you made your soup), I would have suggested what Uncle Bob does except I take out the meat and broth, then brown my onion and carrots, then add it all back in with whatever other frozen veggies I have until the meat is falling apart.

Again, glad it turned out well and thank you for the inspiration for dinner on Thursday!
