    Literary Mom's Note:

    Better than Campbell's but just as comforting! Loosely based on a gourmet cooking magazine's recipe for Beef Barley soup, I didn't have any barley or okra, so I added root veggies to make it more hearty, like a rich broth with the chunkyness of stew. It turned out to be the best soup I've ever made! DH, stepson and baby girl kept coming back for more.

      This was my first time attempting to make a Vegetable Beef Soup, but this recipe made it so easy! And it was OMG delicious!! I omitted the hot pepper sauce for personal preference and added a half can of tomato sauce; I also added extra potato and some cabbage, and it came out wonderful! Thanks for this great

      Wow! This was wonderful! It's so tasty and yet easy to make. I left the hot pepper sauce out for dietary reasons, but it was still great. I'll be making this again throughout the winter. Thanks, Inkling, for this recipe.

      This is a great vegetable beef soup. I really liked the little touch of spice from the hot sauce. I did add a pint of canned green beans. Thanks for the keeper.
