I am new to making soup with leftovers and what's in the cupboard but this is one I came up with that we all really enjoyed. A tasty, nutritious lunch or light supper that is ready in less than 30 minutes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place 1 cup beef stock and 1 cup water in sauce pan.
  2. Add diced potato and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes are boiling, cook the frozen vegetables, according to the package, in the microwave.
  4. When the potatoes are tender, reduce heat to medium and add the remaining ingredients except water. Use an additional cup of stock if you desire a stronger flavored broth.
  5. Add enough water to cover the meat and veggies with broth. Stir to combine.
  6. Allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until heated thoroughly.

This is an amazing soup. So easy and so good! I'm still marvelling over it. I was out of shredded beef so I bought one of those prepared and refrigerated roasts and shredded part of it. I also you baby Yukon potatoes which I left unpeeled and quartered. The whole soup just hit the spot, not just for me but for the neightbors I shared it with. Thanks for a keeper recipe.

marg,i just wanted to tell you that this soup was very good!!! i made the soup just a little quicker than the recipe stated, i had leftover veggies already in the "fridge" and some leftover roast in the freezer.i didn't have the red potatoe, i just used a couple of medium sized russets. i cheated on the broth, i used three beef boullion cubes and three cups of water and only 2 cups of the water that was in the recipe.i added pepper to taste after it was finished. i served it with onion bread Onion Bread,that i had spread a little margarine and garlic powder. as you will be able to tell in the picture i left it under the broiler to long :)but it was still good. this is going to be a regular in our home thank you for posting.
