Vegetable Beef Soup - ground beef and onions sautéed in a dutch oven

All you do is brown the ground beef, chop the veggies and throw it all in a large pot.

In a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat brown the ground beef. Drain if needed. Add onions and saute for about 3 minutes.

Add the beef broth (or beef stock), tomato juice, potatoes, green beans, corn, carrots, celery, okra, salt, and pepper.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Stupid easy, right?

You can certainly use stew meat or cubed chuck roast. But to make sure the meat comes out tender you will need to cook at least another 20-30 minutes.

This is one of those recipes you can use those vegetables that are lying around in your fridge or freezer.  If you are like me you have half bags of frozen corn, okra, and peas in your freezer.  

I didn’t happen to have any field peas this time but you can mix and match to your taste. Some people don’t like okra. I think it adds a great flavor and it helps to thicken the soup.
