Delicious 10 Minute Beef Stew/Soup

As a working mother I have to have quick meals to fix. I thought of this one on a night when I was really running late and everyone was hungry. This worked great for dinner with a salad, and then as a side with a sandwich the next day for lunch for everyone. The night you make it it won't be as thick. For added thickness add 2 tbs cornstarch mixed first with 2 tbs water. My family thought I had been cooking it in a crockpot all day!

Ready In:
10mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 32 ounces beef broth (1 box)
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans mixed vegetables (No Salt Added)
  • 2 lbs pre-cooked beef roast (I buy Hormel Beef Roast... NOT the Beef Tips. Costs about $5/lb.)
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • pepper

directions

  • Begin cooking the first 1lb of Beef in the Microwave (Hormel cook time is 4 minutes, I only cook it for 3 minute for this recipe).
  • Poor Beef Broth into 3-4 quart pot.
  • Open 3 cans of No Salt Added Mixed Vegetable.
  • Drain 2 and add all three (include liquid of one can) to pot.
  • Set pot to boil.
  • First pound of Beef should be done. Begin cooking 2nd pound.
  • Mix cornstarch with equal amount of water to create a paste and add to the vegetables. If you want to be more like a beef vegetable soup, skip this step.
  • Shread and add first pound of beef. When second pound is done shread and add it.
  • Continue to boil gently until ready to serve. The longer your boil it, the thicker it will get.
