Reviews forFamily Vegetable Beef Soup
"This soup was a huge hit at my New Year's Eve party. It's healthy, hearty, and so delicious on a cold winter's day. I omitted the cabbage and used a combination of corn and green peas instead. I also added a dash more oregano. I sauteed fresh mushrooms instead of using canned. This soup is definitely going into my winter rotation but it makes a lot. I plan to try freezing some the next time I make it."
"My Family LOVES this soup!"
"This was great and even better the next day."
"Love it but here are a few changes I make just to make it even more of a pantry meal:I substitute beef broth with one can of tomato paste instead of the tomato juice. Lower sodium and always in my pantry.Also, I usually have shredded zucchini in my freezer so I throw 2 c. of that in instead of the cabbage.Either way, it's a great soup!"
"This is a healthy, fulfilling recipe that we keep coming back to. My kids DO love it (even after much protesting otherwise), and I love that it is so nourishing!"
"I thought this was wonderful! Very happy with the results and will be making it again!"
"Next time I will I cut down the beef to 1 lb and add cubed potatoes."
"One of the best soups I have ever made. I did make a few changes to it. I only added 1 pound ground beef, used a 10 oz. can of sliced mushrooms and I left out the green beans. I added 2 1/2 cups celery and 3 cups each carrots and cabbage, I also used 2 cloves minced garlic in stead of the garlic powder and only added 3/4 teaspoon salt. Will make soup again!"
"I added some water to the recipe."
