More About This Recipe

  • Soup from scratch requires making stock from bones, chopping vegetables and an all day simmer. This vegetable beef soup offers you that slow-cooked flavor, but with time-saving ingredients that still pack a wallop of flavor. First, choose ground beef, a quick-cooking, but hearty, meat option. Instead of peeling and chopping vegetables, reach into the freezer and pantry and pull out a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and cans of Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. After just a 20-minute simmer, you’re ready to ladle out steaming bowls of homemade ground beef vegetable soup. Nothing could be easier—or more satisfying.
