Vegetable Beef Soup

Here is my recipe for vegetable beef soup:

1 beefy soup bone
water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 bay leaves
4 to 5 medium carrots, sliced
pinch of oregano
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup chopped cabbage
1 can Italian Stlye Tomatoes
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 beef bouillon cube

Cover the soup bone with water in a heavy 3 quart pan. Add salt, pepper and bay leaves. Let come to bubbly stage while preparing the vegetables. Turn heat low and add celery, onions, carrots and cabbage. Simmer at least 2 and 1/2 hours, or until the meat on the bone is tender. Remove the bone and bay leaves and cut the meat into bite size pieces. Put the meat back into the soup and add the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and bouillon cube. Simmer another 30 minutes.

What vegetables or spices do you put in your soup? I am always looking for a TNT vegetable soup recipe.
I see there is a thread for soups back in 2004 but I was wondering if any of our members had some new ideas. Thanks

Great recipe!!

I go one step further by browning a meaty flat shank bone first to get that brown roasted flavor, then I follow with the rest of the recipe.

To go completely from scratch, I get some raw beef bones, roast them in the oven until nicely browned, add rough-cut veggies like onions, carrots and celery - skin on, put them in my big 17-qt. stock pot, add enough cold water
to just cover, add tomato wedges, a boquet garnie, bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat, cover and let it simmer for 8 hours or overnight.

I then drain the stock, wait for it to cool slightly, skim of the fat and I've got
some wonderful beef soup stock!! I then cut up an onion, some celery, add them to the stock, let them cook and add some browned diced cube steak.

Then the frozen veggies go in and the whole thing simmers for a while. Then the potatoes. Adjust seasonings to taste. And you've got the best hoemade soup that you ever had!!!

I make mine like this

roast a 3-4 lb chuck roast in one can of Campbells double strength broth, garlic and onion. at 325 for 3-4 hours (or use leftover chuck roast). Cut the beef into chunks and put the entire contents (broth and all) in a soup pot.

Into a large soup pot - I place:
1 bag frozen soup veggies
small head of cabbage, chopped
2-3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 can of stewed tomatoes
chopped cauliflower or okra (if you like it)
onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
water to cover mixture

Bring to a boil and then simmer on low 2-3 hours. Salt/pepper to taste.

I also add a little bit of barley to it as well.

You can also leave out the meat if you like for a completely lean vegetarian
veggie soup. Just add a little bit of olive oil for flavor. Great for dieters! But for low-carb dieters, use no starch.
