Quick Facts

Servings: 8
An old-fashioned, hearty soup that’s easy to prepare. Any leftover vegetable can be added and any lean cut of beef works in this recipe. Serve with crusty, whole grain bread.


  • 1 lb beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 Tbs oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 Tbs beef bouillon granules
  • 28 oz canned tomatoes, chopped (one 28-ounce can)
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots (2 carrots), sliced
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 3 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables


  • In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat oil and brown meat. (This browning process produces a rich broth, so don’t hurry.) Add onions to pot and cook until soft.
  • Stir in water and bouillon and bring to a boil.
  • Add tomatoes, carrots, celery, and cabbage, and simmer covered for 30–60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add frozen vegetables and simmer for another 30 minutes.
