Recipe: Hearty Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup

Today is a grey, cold and rainy day, which means it's a perfect day for a big pot of hearty homemade vegetable beef soup!


I made this soup earlier today and it really hit the comfort spot for my family.  Best of all, you will probably have leftovers to enjoy for the next couple days!  
A friend from Instagram asked for the recipe, so, I thought I'd share it here today. 
It's pretty simple and really tasty and if you are a soup lover like we are, it should hit the spot on a cold day like today.

You'll need:
A large stock pot no smaller than 6 quarts
Large skillet

-------------
Ingredients:
6 large potatoes, diced in quarter size chunks
1/2 head of chopped cabbage
4 large carrots, chopped in quarter size chunks
5 celery stalks, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen lima beans
1/2 cup frozen corn
8 ounce can tomato sauce **
1 quart V-8 Juice **
1 large onion, chopped
2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
In a large stock pot with sea salt added to water, boil potatoes, carrots, cabbage & celery on a medium boil for approximately 12-14 minutes.



While vegetables are boiling, add olive oil to skillet, add onions, saute until translucent, season onions with salt & pepper then add ground beef, season with another fine layer of sea salt & pepper.  Cook until brown.



During the last 5 minutes of the vegetables cooking, add into the vegetable pot: frozen peas, frozen, lima beans & frozen corn.


After the frozen vegetables boil in the pot for 5 minutes, I drain 3/4 of the water from the vegetable pot.  I use a ladle to dip out the water, simply because I have a hard time handling the heavy cast iron pot due to carpal tunal.  It takes me a couple extra minutes to do it this method, but it works for me. :)

Add browned beef & onions, tomato sauce and V-8 Juice.  



 Stir well & simmer for a few minutes.


Note: you can adjust the amount of water you leave in the pot & the amount of V-8 Juice you add back to the pot according to your own taste.

**If you are watching your sodium intake, you can purchase the low-sodium brands of tomato sauce & V-8 juice.


Enjoy!
