Sometimes.. you just need some basic soup..

Made a batch of beef vegetable soup tonight...
just boiled the roast down, pulled out the fat, separated the meat. Rough cubed up potatoes, carrots, onion and cabbage, added to the broth. Poured in tomato juice.. a few spices etc.. let it cook.

So good... hard to leave it alone. Just happy I have leftovers!!!

I love veggie soup--I like to add a can of hominy to mine. Or barley. Or wild rice. Or whatever I have in the fridge or pantry, I guess!

We had a really good beef vegetable soup last night, but I didn't go to all the trouble you did, Jeff. We had leftover roast from Sunday and the gravy was delicious so I added some beef broth, a package of mixed veggies, a couple of tomatoes minus their skins, some leftover noodles and bits and pieces of veggies from previous meals. Dh really enjoyed it and there is some for his lunch today. I will have the lentil soup.

Man, I love vegetable beef soup!! We save the bones from grilled t-bones and rib roasts, etc. They make a great starter for beef broth.

That is where we differ on beef vegetable soup.. I want LOTS of broth. I cook the meat in water to make the broth, usually a nice chuck roast. so I end up with nice hunks of meat. As to the veggies I actually prefer JUST potatoes, carrots, cabbage and onion.. then add the tomato juice.... Oh and the some of the juice from the jar of banana peppers and a few of the mild peppers.

I used the last of the boston butt to make soup and SURPRISE! It tastes like Brunswick Stew.

Sounds delicious! I usually do this but with Vegetable Stock instead of tomato juice. Leftover beef is the best :)
