Expert Tips

  • Sub in other ground meats like pork, lamb or bison; all are simple to cook and make a satisfying broth.
  • Stir a few cups of cooked small pasta or other grains into the soup when it’s done—try orzo (which looks like rice) or some quick-cooking barley (make it when the soup is simmering.)
  • Depending on the frozen veggie blend you use, chop up any larger pieces so everything is bite-size in the soup.
  • This is a good soup for quick grown-up brown bag lunches. Freeze in small microwavable containers so you can slip one into a lunch bag and reheat it at noontime.

More About This Recipe

  • Old-fashioned soup requires making stock from bones, chopping countless vegetables and simmering ingredients all day. 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, protein option. Then skip the onion-chopping step and opt instead for prechopped onions, which are ready to go right away. Instead of peeling and chopping vegetables, reach into the freezer and pantry and pull out a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and cans of 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.
