Versatile Vegetable Beef Soup (Freezer Meal)

Another soup that can be mixed and matched with different additions.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lbs stew beef or hamburger
  • 1 large bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 large cans crushed tomatoes
  • Ad
  • 2 envelopes beef stew mix (or you can use beefy onion soup mix)
  • 1 Tbsp. beef bouillon
  • 1 container (32-oz) Swanson beef broth

Directions:

Cut the stew beef into bite size pieces. Brown the meat thoroughly, crumbling the hamburger into bite size or smaller pieces. Drain well.

Into the crock pot put the tomatoes, broth, and vegetables. Add the meat. Then add the stew mix and bouillon. If it's too tomato-y tasting for you, you can add 1-2 Tbsp. sugar to cut the acid. Don't do this until close to the end of the cooking because the acid taste does settle down during cooking.

Set the crockpot pot on 8 hours and let it go.

When it's all done, scoop it into the size containers you want, let them cool, and pop them into the freezer.

Variations:

  • Add cooked and drained noodles, plus about 1/3 more water
  • Add rice, plus about 1/3 more water
  • Add cooked and drained diced potatoes, plus about 1/3 more water
  • Or it's good without adding any of these except the extra water
  • Thicken it up using flour, broth, and browning sauce, then serve it over rice or noodles
  • Servings: Varies
    Time: 20-30 Minutes Preparation Time
    8 Hours Cooking Time
