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.

Using a crock pot, cook a chuck roast in your usual way, separate the meat and liquids into portions for soup starters and freeze. I freeze mine into 4 portions but it depends on how much meat you like in your soup.
When you're ready for soup, pop one portion into a pot, add a can of vegetable (v8) juice, a can of each, tomatoes, green beans, carrots, peas, corn, mushrooms and any leftover veggies from the freezer (broccoli, etc.). You can also add dried barley, onion, celery (which also can come from the freezer). Cook until the barley is done and you have homemade soup in minutes.
In large skillet, cook beef until no longer pink, then drain. Stir in mixed vegetables, diced tomatoes, broth, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add macaroni. Reduce the heat. Simmer for 8-10 minutes until macaroni and vegetables are tender.

I can eat soup year round. Love the fresh vegetables in this.
Another soup that can be mixed and matched with different additions. Cut the stew beef into bite size pieces.
My friend sent this recipe to try during our abnormally cold weather. It was delicious and a recipe that I'll make often during winter's cold.
I like the meatballs in this.

Use their search box and type in Vegetable Beef Soup. Once you've found the recipe that is to your liking, you can change the number of servings before you print off the recipe.
1 lb. ground beef
2 cans Campbell's condensed minestrone soup (including 2 soup cans water)
Brown ground beef and crumble into small pieces --drain and add next three ingredients.
Bring to a boil and then add cheese gradually, stirring constantly.
Serves 4 - 6.
Is better if made day before serving except for adding cheese so it will not burn.

Soak soup bone in cold water and salt for 30 minutes. Flour meat and brown in oil. Add meat to boiling water and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, skimming residue from top of pot. Simmer meat, uncovered, for 2-3 hours. Add peas and carrots, baby limas and green beans and cook for 30 minutes. Add tomato soup, onions, potatoes and seasonings 1 hour before serving. Add corn 15 minutes before serving. Note: We don't like lima beans and leave them out. This soup is so full of veggies that it doesn't matter if you use the limas or not.
By Robin from Washington, IA
This sounds delicious, Robin! It's very similar to what I used to do when all my boys were at home. I used canned tomatoes and no limas. I don't even know anyone who likes limas, lol It's also good for getting rid of leftovers.
My eldest son told me something he's been doing which I haven tried yet. He puts a small can of mushroom pieces and a small amount of instant mashed potato flakes into the pot with all the other goodies. (10/30/2007)
By Marty Dick
This is a favorite of ours (homemade chicken noodle soup too) No limas here either. Also we don't put canned tomato soup, we use tomato juice and not creamed corn but regular can of corn. What does creamed corn do for it?
