Tender beef, savory vegetables makes this Old Fashion Beef Vegetable Soup Recipe a filling meal that is easy to assemble and no fuss to cook.
This is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods.
Do you like to travel? I like to travel as long as the whole family goes, but I don’t like to leave the boys to go. But, then, I hate packing them when we all travel. No, I can’t trust them to do it themselves yet. Do you like to pack? I absolutely hate it!
I used to be a very thorough, smart packer. But, then I got the task of packing for me and both boys. It’s just overwhelming. At least when we go to the beach, they don’t really need clothes. Well, you know what I mean. They need a couple of swimsuits, suntan lotion and 2 pairs of shorts! Boys are easy like that.
Traveling to a cold area with coats and boots and sweaters is exhausting!
While I packed for the latest trip, Big Daddy made this awesome soup. He’s the soup maker in the family. He makes a HUGE production of making soup. That’s pretty exhausting too!
The soups I’ve made in the past take about 30 minutes to make. That’s why I like soup. It’s quick and most of them can be made in a slow cooker and require very little hands-on time.
Not for Big Daddy. Oh, no. When Big Daddy makes soup it takes all day! Whatever soup he’s making, I call All Day Soup.
Beef Vegetable Soup
- I prefer chuck roast for soup. Those packages of stew meat in the grocery stores are bits and pieces of different cuts of meat. I don’t recommend them.
- You can use shoepeg or whole kernel corn. As well, you can use either canned or frozen.
- My mom didn’t put rice or noodles in vegetable soup. Therefore, I don’t. However, you can if you like it. You can add 1 cup white rice and or 6 ounces egg noodles.
This Beef Vegetable Soup has tangy tomato broth and is full of hearty vegetables. I always put extra potatoes in because I like them best.

My mother taught me to make beef veg. soup. I cook the beef with half of the onion in a separate pot of water to cover. Cook the potatoes and carrots with the rest of the onion, in tomato juice and a can of diced tomatoes, w/ s&p and bay leaf. After potatoes are almost done, add beef pot, stir and cook together. Then add a bag of frozen veg. and part of a sliced head of cabbage. Let cook on low for about 15 min. or so. Serve with a pan of cornbread – enough for a couple of days, Mother always said cooking separately at first gave heartier taste to the beef.
Delicious beef vegetable soup! No amount for the oil was listed in the ingredients so I used 1 or 2 Tablespoons olive oil to brown the roast. Also bay leaf isn’t listed in the ingredients but luckily I did have some on hand. I had to substitute two peeled and sliced carrots for the baby carrots because I didn’t have baby carrots on hand. Added 2 teaspoons sugar because I always do when I am adding tomatoes to a recipe, to soften the acidity of the tomatoes. Added your recipe to my “favorite soup recipes” folder. Thank you.
Mmm! Can hardy wait to put this soup together…a perfect meal for a less-than-perfect winter day!
As for packing, I USED to hate it until i bought a set of sturdy mesh, zipped travel bags. underwear in one bag, socks in another, blouses and tees in another, slacks and jeans in still another etc.,
everything visible at a glance, and easy to stash in drawers if you’re going to be staying in one place for any length of time! No shuffling around and getting everything disorganized in your suitcase! The bags are expandable too! A REALLY worthwhile modestly priced investment. Sure allows you to travel carefree!

I hate packing too – mostly because there are 7 of us :o) If it were just me, or Brian and myself, it wouldn’t be too bad! Your soup looks and sounds great! Pinned and shared on FB – thanks for linking up to Freedom Fridays!
Curious about the “1 oz. cans” of corn and green beans -surely that’s a typo?

Perfect for winter – coming from a Northerner.
I don’t know how you survived last week!
Paula, this looks so good. My mom used tomato juice in soups and chili. I had forgotten that. Thanks, for sharing. I try to wait to peach until the last minute. That way I don’t take too much. I HATE heavy suitcases.
Linda, my husband waits until the last second, drives me nuts. We’d be late leaving every time if I didn’t do almost all the getting ready 🙂
I hate packing for that reason! Although the kids pick out their clothes, I still have to go through them and make sure they are appropriate. Then you have to be sure they have good shoes, jackets, essentials-this is all before I think of myself! Kind of like my life! This looks like a good, warm your belly soup! Very hearty!
oh, you know what I forgot to put in that post, we then left their entire bag of clothes at home!! They had one small bag with 2 set in it!

Paula, love how you sneak in extra potatoes like I sneak in extra dumplings! This soup looks hearty and delicious – nothing like a big bowl of homemade soup! Thanks for sharing and pinning! Have a great Wednesday!
Thank you Cindy! I would just have a bowl of potatoes if I could 😉 Thanks for sharing!
