Stew Is Too Sweet

I made some beef soup and one of the ingredients I used was very sweet. I would like to know how can I take the sweetness out?

This happened to me just this week (soup was too salty). what worked well for me was straining about 1/2 of the liquid and replacing it with water. it sounds kind of wasteful to drain off the broth, but it's a whole lot wasteful than not being able to eat the food.

Add some white potatoes or instant potatoes to it, good luck.

Too many onions or carrots will make it taste sweet.

Put some canned tomatoes or tomatoe paste in and cook a little more.

I like your answer better, thanks, that's what I had to do was to drain some of the liquid and add more.
