Hearty Vegetable Beef Soup
I love to fix this recipe it's one of my best recipe for the winter ...
I have made this recipe many times. To get more flavor, after browning and draining the meat I saute the onions, celery and carrots until slightly softened. I also add other veggies. Diced tomatoes, mushrooms, green beans, sometimes a turnip or cabbage. My friends love this soup.
I don't know whether it was the beef broth or the V8 juice but there was something about this one that I just didn't particularly care for. It was relatively easy to make and smelled great while cooking but the taste was merely mediocre. I'd even say that it tasted like something that came right out of a soup can - literally. It didn't taste like ANY of it was homemade at all. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't amazing, either. It was very filling. I only needed one bowl full (one serving, I suppose) to fill me up but it was very, very bland. I don't think I will be making this one again any time soon. Also, a lot of the juice and broth simmered out while cooking. So, use a little extra of each.
