This is my grandmother's recipe. The only soup she could get me to eat as a kid and packed full of veggies. The portion is large but freezes well and will last you thru the cold months.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In frying pan, brown ground beef and sausage with green pepper, celery and onion. (You can add celery here or with the mixed vegetables to simmer)
  2. Drain.
  3. Cook the diced potatoes so they are just about fork tender. (otherwise will be hard in the soup).
  4. Combine V8 juice, beef broth, salt and soup starter in stock pot.
  5. Start to simmer.
  6. Add meat, mixed vegetables, okra, and potatoes.
  7. Simmer for about an hour or longer until vegetables are tender.
  8. Add salt to taste.
  9. Enjoy.
