The Veggiest Beef and Vegetable Soup

This is a twist on a very easy beef and veggie soup recipe. A set it and forget it type of recipe. I recommend chopping the meat as small as possible to speed up the cooking of it. And dice the veggies small enough to eat with a spoon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil over medium/high heat in a large soup pot, or dutch oven. Sear the diced steak, stirring often.
  2. Add the onion and cook until tender.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the potatoes if you are using them.
  4. Lower heat to medium/low and let simmer for at least 1 hour.
  5. 3 or 4 hours is better to make sure the meat is very tender.
  6. Add the potatoes about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve.
  7. The soup is done when the meat and potatoes are tender.
  8. Check for seasoning. Makes a great healthy lunch.

I'm really not much for cooked collard greens or cabbage, but then, I didn't make this for me! Rather it was fixed for a housebound neighbor couple for whom I often cook, & they loved it! Definitely a very satisfying comfort food during the last few cold days of winter around here! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This is a really good soup! I only used less than a tablespoon of oil and that was enough. I also can't get collard greens here so I doubled the amount of cabbage. My potatoes were a little stubborn and took about 45 minutes to soften. Good luck in the contest! :)

Terrific! I love making soup and this one was so easy and tasted great. I let it simmer for about 3 hours as suggested. I served it with a sandwich for an easy cold weather dinner. The leftovers we had for lunch the next day were even better. Thanks for sharing. Made for Craze-E Contest 2011.
