Beef Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Dreamgoddess

Number of servings is approximate! This is my family's favorite soup. The recipe makes ALOT of I like to prepare and freeze it for busy nights when I don't really have alot of time to cook. If I'm making this to freeze, I omit the potatoes and add them later. My family loves this with thick slices of plain or cracklin cornbread! Enjoy!

Thanks for the recipe, Dreamgoddess! I've made this type of soup many times without benefit of a real recipe. Never would have thought of adding the ground beef, black-eyed peas, or okra. They were worthy additions and the soup was a hit!!
