Beefy Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Beef Soup

1 pound soup bones
4 cups water
4 cups tomato juice
1 medium onion

2 cups frozen green beans
2 cups frozen corn
4 medium potatoes

Sea Salt

In large stock pot or dutch oven, mix soup bones, water, and chopped onion. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about two hours. Cut meat off of bones and add meat back to the pot, discarding the bones. Pour tomato juice into pot.

Scrub potatoes and carrots and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Add potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans and corn to the pot. Stir and salt well.

Bring to a boil, then simmer, stirring occasionally for about 25 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are tender.

    Hi
    Do you saute the onion before you add to the soup bones/water? Or do you just throw it in?

    Thanks

    I think you can just get them at the grocery store, but I get mine from our local beef provider. I believe you can also go to a butcher shop and ask for them. They are CHEAP!

    I also get mine from our meat market and they are SUPER cheap. But I give my beef bones to our dongs.

    I was going to ask the same question about the soup bones. Any particular part that has the best meat? I’m new to using bones in my soups/stews, and I’ve just recently begun making my own chicken broth and want to make my own beef broth. The beef seems like it might be more difficult to do because we don’t eat beef with the bones in. That’s why I’m wondering which bones to ask for at the butcher?

    Thank you for sharing all you do! It is a blessing and so helpful:o)

    Ooh, I’m not familiar enough with beef parts to know which soup bone would have the most meat. You’ll have to ask the butcher that one!

    I thought I might mention that the simmering stages should happen with the lid on…

    This might be a given to those of you who are better seasoned cooks than myself, but I tend to leave the pot uncovered unless it says so in a recipe as some want you to let the liquids boil down. I learned today that 4 cups of water disappears after just over an hour of simmering ;)

    Hi, Laura! I am going to make this this weekend. Could I double it and freeze half for another night this week? Thanks so much! :)

    Yes, this freezes pretty well. Although the potatoes may get a little mushy. :)
