Hearty Beef Soup
Total TimePrep: 1 hour Cook: 40 min.

I halved the recipe and used 3 small cans of Spicy V8 instead of tomato juice because that is all I had. Very good!
Recipe turned out to be amazing. I did exclude the potatoes and cabbage and replaced them with egg noodles and a higher amounts of onions, carrots and celery. I also used 3 cups of tomato juice instead of 6.. Just out of personal preference. Good stuff!
My son, who hates vegetables of any kind, picked this soup one night. I made it and the whole family LOVED it. What an amazing way to fix vegetables!
The only substitution I made was tomato sauce + water in place of tomato juice. The soup was tasty, but we like our beef cooked until it's tender. Next time I'll simmer the meat for a time before adding the veggies.
I have made this recipe several times! My husband doesn't care for soup, but he loves this one! If I'm not making for a group, I'm freezing in our family size portions and lunch bowls that I can grab on the way to work.
