This soup was really good and we enjoyed it very much...I didn't have beef shanks, so substituted beef stew meat...I think the shanks would have been better... will definitely make this again, but next time as written...Thanks for sharing...SharonP.
Turned out great!! Used soup bone cause it's what I had on hand and subbed some beef stock for the water. Great flavor and oh so filling. My first attempt at homemade soup. Thanks for your help making it a success.
This soup was served at my annual "Souper Supper". What can I say except "beef vegetable soup at its best". Great beefy flavor chuck full of wonderful vegetables and great tasting broth. Thanks for sharing and making my party a hit, Keen5.
This soup sounds a bit like mine. I add 2 crushed and diced garlic cloves and brown the meat along with the onions garlic celery and a bit of green peooer before adding the water. I also add a bay leaf instead of the basil and thyme. Ubfortunately, there are no leftovers to freeze.
