1.5-2 lbs ground beef
1 can stewed tomatoes (or I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, whatever you have in the cabinet)
1 can beef broth
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, green beans, corn)
salt and pepper
In a large stock pot brown off ground beef and drain
add can of broth, tomatoes, frozen vegetables, 2 bouillon cubes and a half can of water.
let simmer and stir occasionally until veggies are soft
add salt and pepper to taste
Total cook time was approximately 40 minutes.
* We serve with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream and crackers for me, tortilla chips for my guy
** In my case the hamburger was still completely frozen, so I added it to the stock pot with a little bit of water covered with a lid on medium high, this only took about 5-7 minutes to ground up. I prefer not to nuke raw meat as it causes it to have a weird texture.
While the soup was simmering I was able to give my daughter a bath and braid her hair. Pin It
