Vegetable Beef Soup

Old-fashioned southern Vegetable Beef Soup is like a bowl full of comfort. So much flavor! As we approach the last days of summer, Vegetable Beef Soup is the perfect way to use up the last remnants of the summer garden. Pretty much any vegetable can be used in vegetable beef soup- zucchini, squash, lima beans, spinach – whatever you have on hand and you’d like to get rid of. Throw it all in the pot.

 

Vegetable Beef Soup - great way to use up end of summer vegetables from the garden. Can be frozen and eaten once the cooler weather sets in.

 

My favorite vegetables to put in this soup are corn and okra. If you don’t have fresh, frozen can be used. In fact, Vegetable Beef Soup is perfect for using up those last little bits of vegetables in your freezer.

I like chunks of sirloin steak in my Vegetable Beef Soup, but you can easily substitute ground beef.

This soup freezes really well so put some away in the freezer. A month from now when school is in full swing and you’re crunched for time, you’ll be glad you did. Add a quick grilled cheese sandwich and you have Southern comfort food at its best.

If you want you soup spicy, just add a couple shakes of Tabasco Sauce sauce or a few pinches of red pepper flakes.
