Hearty Vegetable Beef "Stoup"

Total Time
Prep 0 mins
Cook 0 mins

Thick dish... somewhere between a soup and a stew, and therefore a "stoup." :) (Thank you, Rachael Ray, for that reference!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large kettle, cover beef with water and add chopped onion, salt, thyme.
  2. Bring to boil.
  3. Skim fat from surface.
  4. Add split peas, cover and simmer over low heat, 3-4 hours.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients.
  6. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  7. Adjust seasoning, to taste.
  8. Note: if you'd like it thicker, you can add a torn-up piece of bread or two, stir well, and simmer to incorporate.

I made this soup pretty much as directed except I browned the meat in olive oil, and added 2 bay leaves,and two cloves of garlic. I just had it for lunch and my sister and I thought it was excelent, I will freeze the rest in individule serving sizes for my husband and I.

It was ok, wouldn't say it was outstanding. A lot of preparation for a mediocre soup.

Delicious! Very easy to make - I followed the first three steps and then put it in a crock pot with the remaining ingredients and cooked on slow overnight. I also didn't use potatoes. This was so good I gave some to my mother who surprised me when she said it was the best she'd ever tasted! And she meant it - I'm still in shock.
