This is my own creation and my family loves it served with corn bread or crusty french bread for dunking. On the plus side, the leftover wine goes well with the soup! Extremely easy to prepare, hot and filling on cold winter nights! If this is a little too salty for your taste, leave out the tablespoon of bouillon, just use as much soup mix as sounds good to you and keep adding and tasting until perfect! Makes a lot of soup!

This is a very flavorful soup. We are avid soup eaters, and this is the best we've come across in a long time!! I added 1/2 cup sliced celery, and used fresh vegetables. I let it simmer for almost an hour. The onion sopp mix gives this a great beefy taste. I will defifitely make this one again! Thanks!

I use a 14.5 ounce can of crushed tomatoes. The great thing about this recipe is you can use frozen vegetables, fresh veggies, or add spices at will and it always turns out great!

Great tasting hearty soup. I used 1/2 a packet of frozen chunky vegetables and 1 can of whole kernel corn also added approx 1 tsp dried thyme. We didnt find the soup salty at all, and I also added the beef boullion. Thanks for posting. =)
