Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe
I love quick and easy meals that you can put together from scratch. I decided to make a soup last night, which is a slight modification of the recipe that Tim put together, that he's made for me when I've gotten sick.

This version of the soup has some extra ingredients added, and is pretty darn filling. This will serve about 5 people.

So, first bring about 10 cups of water to a boil, in a large soup pot. Add 4 vegetable bouillon cubes, and once they've dissolved, bring the heat down to medium while you cut up your veggies.


1 large carrot, sliced.

1 small onion, sliced.

1/2 clove of chopped garlic.

3 medium-sized red potatoes, sliced thin and round, like with Scallop Potatoes (I also leave the potato skins on).

Add your veggies to the pot, and leave the heat at medium while you cut up your meat. In this case, I cut up a large sirloin steak, into small bite-sized chunks. Add that to the pot, and then turn your heat up a bit.

Add spices to taste (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley). Stir it all up well, and then put the lid on the pot and let it sit there for 15 minutes, stirring every so often.

While your soup is doing it's thing, start prepping some rice to boil (I used Indian Basmati rice). So, in a small pot, add 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, and when your rice starts to bubble over, bring the heat down to medium. The rice takes about 15 minutes to cook. When that's done, add the rice to your soup, stir, and let the soup sit for another 5 minutes or so.

Shut your burner off, let your soup cool for a little bit, and then serve! :)

I thought of adding celery, but didn't have any. This was all just leftovers that I threw together. But I will try it this way next time. ;)

Do you pre-brown the meat in a skillet first?

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to brown it first, though I didn't. If you let the meat boil for 15-20 minutes in the soup, it should turn out okay. :)
