Delicious 10 Minute Beef Stew/Soup

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by lstnrisin

As a working mother I have to have quick meals to fix. I thought of this one on a night when I was really running late and everyone was hungry. This worked great for dinner with a salad, and then as a side with a sandwich the next day for lunch for everyone. The night you make it it won't be as thick. For added thickness add 2 tbs cornstarch mixed first with 2 tbs water. My family thought I had been cooking it in a crockpot all day!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 32 ounces beef broth (1 box)
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans mixed vegetables (No Salt Added)
  • 2 lbs pre-cooked beef roast (I buy Hormel Beef Roast... NOT the Beef Tips. Costs about $5/lb.)
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • pepper


  1. Begin cooking the first 1lb of Beef in the Microwave (Hormel cook time is 4 minutes, I only cook it for 3 minute for this recipe).
  2. Poor Beef Broth into 3-4 quart pot.
  3. Open 3 cans of No Salt Added Mixed Vegetable.
  4. Drain 2 and add all three (include liquid of one can) to pot.
  5. Set pot to boil.
  6. First pound of Beef should be done. Begin cooking 2nd pound.
  7. Mix cornstarch with equal amount of water to create a paste and add to the vegetables. If you want to be more like a beef vegetable soup, skip this step.
  8. Shread and add first pound of beef. When second pound is done shread and add it.
  9. Continue to boil gently until ready to serve. The longer your boil it, the thicker it will get.
