This is just packed with vegetables. It's very tasty. I replaced the water with beef broth to make it even richer. We had it for lunch 2 days in a row. I think it was even better the second day. You can't beat this if you're looking for a good low calorie meal.

I made this soup last night and while it was good I thought it was a little bland. I only had a 46 oz bottle of V8 so i added another cup of water and i ended up adding about 5 teaspoons of beef base. Instead of the frozen veg I used a small can of green beans and added some chopped celery and green pepper. I also added some garlic powder and worcestershire sauce. After the changes we all really liked it. Thanks for posting!

Good and easy to make. I followed the recipe other then I used canned diced potatoes, and a can of carrots, green beans and two cans of corn. I also used beef broth instead of water. We all enjoyed this.

Very good and easy. I used dehydrated chopped onion, 1 can carrot slices, and 1 can sliced potatoes. I used the canned veggie liquid as part of my 2 cups of water. I also added a beef boullion cube. Thanks.

This was just what I was looking for. I already knew I wanted ground beef, mixed veggies with tomato, and beef broth. By adding the soup mix and the three dried herbs as suggested along with 2 C. beef broth instead of water, the soup came out with a very nice flavor. Thank you, chickpea!

Very good and healthy stew. I'm following Weight Watchers and this is 5 points a serving as written. I also substituted V8 juice and added some pepper. Thank you for posting!

Made this for dinner last night and it was a nice change. I did make some changes though to suit our personal tastes. I doubled the potatoes, doubled the meat (hubby said it was too meat poor for his tastes) and instead of tomato juice, I used V8. I also added a bay leaf and a teaspoon of thyme to it. Looks like we'll be having it again for din-din tonight. Looking forward to it already. Next time I make it, I will cut everything in half though - it does make alot, especially for just a couple.
