"This is a delicious and satisfying soup I make often. It is from "A Taste of Myrtle Beach" cookbook, which features recipes from the area's best restaurants. This soup is from Caroline's Cafe. This also works very well in the crockpot. Just brown the ground beef and add everything else to the crockpot and let it cook on low for about 6 hours."

"Easy-peasy vegetable beef soup recipe - love that this is so versatile and can be made with whatever you have hanging around! I halved the ground beef and opted for the frozen veggies. Browned the beef and then threw everything into a crockpot on Low for 8 hours and it was great. The ketchup does add a little somethin'-somethin' - don't omit it!"
"Delicious! No onions were used, due to allergies, but, it wasn't missed. I replaced with diced celery. Yum, thank you."
"This was incredible! Went together fast and easy, and the result was rich and satisfying- perfect for a gloomy fall day, Thank you so much for sharing, we'll be making this again!!"
"This is kind of like one that I've made for years except for the beef broth and ketchup. I like yours better though. It has a great flavor to it."
"Yum! I was afraid that it was going to be a little plain when I made it, but it turned out wonderfully!"
"Pretty easy to make. I am sure I didn't simmer for the full 3 hours (maybe almost 2). Everyone ate it and no one commented. I found it too sweet."
"As a native Sandlapper and former resident of the Grand Strand, somehow missed this local dish. It is great! Added a dash of worcestershire sauce for a kick and used frozen veggies."
"Made this with frozen veg's, V8 Hot & Spicy, Boca instead of ground beef and added small shell pasta; Excellent. Made Cornbread #4496 to go with and it was the perfect cold winter night meal. Thank you!"
"I made this last night, it suited our cold weather! I followed the directions, but I used 1 bag frozen mixed veggies as the poster mentions. Turned out great. Hubby asked what was different--you get a slight hint of a vinegary taste--from the ketchup--that he really liked. Very easy, and we will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing."
"this is close to what I make, but I put small shell pasta in mine and also 1 quart of V8 hot and spicey instead of ketchup....."
"Followed your brilliant and simple recipe as well as utilizing Andy at Long Meadow Farm's tips and they worked beautifully at the end. I used fresh green beans, carrots and celery with a bit of chopped frozen spinach instead of the canned vegies. I also added one big glub of worchestire sauce and liberally seasoned the drained beef with salt and pepper. DH loved it! Thank you for an EXCELLENT KEEPER!! We will use it again and again."
"My family loved this soup. I did puree the tomatoes(I used one can of spicy and 1 regular). I added a little extra broth, so I could add in some barley and chick peas. Very filling and filled with flavour. Thanks for the recipe."
"This is a delicious soup. I had a bit of left over gravy and added it to the soup as well as a bit of freshly ground pepper. Other than that I followed the recipe as written."
"My husband's family recently came together to work on sorting 40 years' accumulation of my in-laws "things" after his mother passed away and his father moved into a retirement facility. I needed something good, filling, and easy to prepare. This recipe received RAVE reviews from everyone who ate it! I did add macaroni as suggested in one comment, and to make the recipe go further, I added one packet of dry onion soup mix + 4 cups of water. It was SO tasty, and enjoyed by the hungry crew!"
"This soup is so yummy! We will definately be adding this to our regular line-up! Didnt change a thing! It was awesome!"
"This is very good comforting soup. I used ground turkey and made as is except added a little garlic powder. Next time I think I may add some macaroni to this. Very good overall. Thanks for submitting such a easy and tasty meal."
"Lainey6605, you are so PURRfect in your wonderful, comforting meals/soups. Another winner! This is so simplistic in ease, but the taste is outstanding. A true pot of soup that was declared "WOW" by the folks at the Saturday lunch table. I started this in the morning, and was absolutely blooming with taste by lunch. I followed this exactly, except added fresh minced garlic, celery, (I needed to use up) and my own tomato puree that was canned from the previous summer. And just for a special effect, added a tablespoon of butter at the end, prior to serving along with fresh oregano, and a blast of Parmesan cheese. Terrific, a real keeper!"
"This recipe reminds me of the soup my father used to make. He kept a large freezer bowl in the freezer to put all the left overs after each meal. It would contain all kinds of meats, from hot dogs to pork chops, rice, macoroni, potatoes, and all kinds of vegetables. When the bowl would get full, he would make a BIG pot of soup and make cornbread to go with it. Wonderful. If there wasn't enough meat, he would put corned beef, hamburger or whatever was on hand. The same with vegetables. If not enough, he would add mixed vegetables from a can."
"Wonderfully quick and easy to make with ingredients I just about always have on hand. Tasty, too. Thanks!"
