▢Optional: canned and drained corn, peas or lima beans, about ½ – ¾ cup each



➤ Step-by-Step Guide to Making it :


Step 1:

In a large dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add chopped onions, a pinch of salt, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.


Step 2:

Add garlic, cook 1 minute until fragrant and then add the ground beef. Break up beef with wooden spoon and cook until no longer pink.



Step 3:

Add the tomatoes, beef broth and wine. Stir well and then add the parsley, basil and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.


Step 4:

Add the vegetables: potatoes, celery, green beans, carrots, parsnips and cabbage (and any other optional veggies).


Step 5:

Stir well to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1½ hours, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are all tender and the soup broth has fully developed. Enjoy.



➤ Becky’s Tips:


  • Use a mix of beef cuts for more flavor and texture. You can also use ground beef or leftover roast beef, shredded or chopped.
  • Don’t skip the browning step, as it adds depth of flavor to the soup.
  • Use your favorite vegetables, fresh or frozen. Some good options include potatoes, green beans, corn, peas, zucchini, or spinach.
  • If you don’t have pasta, you can use rice, barley, quinoa, or any other grain you like.
  • Freeze the leftovers in portion-sized containers for a quick and easy meal later.
