Brown stew beef in large skillet with onion, garlic, and olive oil. After meat is really browned, add 1 cup water to loosen the meat drippings. Add that to the soup pot.
Peel and slice 1 or 2 lbs. fresh carrots and steam them in another small pot.
Peel and slice 1 or 2 lbs. fresh carrots and steam them in another small pot.When the beef is almost tender, add remaining vegetables and parsley. Add beef base water and 2 cans beef broth (or you can use chicken broth). Simmer.
When meat is tender, add the steamed carrots. Salt and pepper to taste.
(You can add instant potatoes if you like a thicker soup.)
This is an easy vegetable soup. Add anything you like in the way of canned or frozen vegetables. I hope you'll enjoy this. Don't be afraid to improve on it with your own favorite flavors. Please share some with someone that can use a hug and warm meal.
