Beef Soup

January 30, 2014

Hello!

With this polar vortex affecting much of the country, it’s a great time to make soup!  For this one, I called my grandma to find out how she puts it together.  It is really a flexible recipe… check it out!

Ingredients:
-Stew Bone (I didn’t have one so I used 3 lbs of stew meat)
-Beef Stock
-Vegetables
-Potatoes
-Squash
-Zucchini
-Carrots
-Celery
-Kale
-Tomatos
-Frozen Peas
-Frozen Corn
-Green Beans
-Vermicelli
-Parsley
-Salt and Pepper, to season

Directions:
This is a simple, one pot soup.  I put beef stock in my pot and added the stew meat.  If you’re using a stew bone, let it boil before adding everything else.  Once you’ve chopped your veggies to the desired size, add them to the pot.  I used a big stock pot for this so I could put as many vegetables as possible.  At this point add salt and pepper.  I go overboard at this point because as the meat and veggies cook, they need to absorb seasonings to help flavor them.  It helps each be flavorful.  I let mine cook for hours to help the stew meat be tender and the flavors blend perfectly.  Near the end of cooking, add the vermicelli.
