Vegetable Beef Soup

Soup season is in full swing and I am beyond pumped. When it comes to maintaining long term weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle, soups are one of my go-to meals for lunch or dinner.

Warm, filling and totally satisfying, a bowl of soup is a sure fire way to get more lean protein and nutritious vegetables into your diet.

Easy Vegetable Beef Soup

Vegetable Beef Soup is a classic recipe from my childhood that my mom still makes quite frequently. While we can’t always have dinner together every night anymore, making this soup for my boys makes me feel like we are together in one room (even if we aren’t!)

A few other family favorite soups include Lemony Chicken Soup with Greens and Lemony Lentil Soup with Spinach. Are you starting to figure out how I came up with The Lemon Bowl?

Hearty Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe

Traditionally we use carrots, potatoes, celery and peas in this vegetable beef soup recipe but any veggies you have on hand would work great. Try using parsnips, sweet potatoes, corn or even zucchini.

Pro Tip: Before serving, sprinkle with fresh herbs such as minced parsley or basil. Using fresh herbs as a garnish is a great way to perk up any bowl of soup.

Warm up with this hearty bowl of Vegetable Beef Soup packed with potatoes, carrots and tender beef.
PREP: 15 minutes
COOK: 45 minutes
TOTAL: 1 hour


  • 1 pound beef stew meat (or sirloin cut in 1 inch cubes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 2 carrots (diced)
  • 3 celery stalks (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose steak seasoning
  • 2 russet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 32 ounces beef broth (low sodium)
  • 32 ounces V8 juice or tomato juice
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • fresh parsley (garnish)
  • ½ cup cooked barley (hull-less or regular) (Optional)


  • Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray or a little oil if you’re not using a non-stick pan.
  • Sprinkle beef with half of the salt and pepper then add to hot pan. Sear beef on both sides, about 1-2 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add diced onion, carrots, celery and garlic to the pan along with the remaining salt and pepper. Sauté until veggies soften, 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in Worcestershire, thyme, steak seasoning and potato cubes. Cook for 1-2 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour beef broth and V8 into the pan along with reserved beef cubes then bring to a boil. Stir in frozen vegetables then bring back to a boil.
  • Cover pot with a lid then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes before serving with fresh parsley. Add optional barley in.

    This soup looks so hearty. It’s absolutely perfect for the quickly approaching cold season. Pinned.

    This soup looks delish! And that’s pretty impressive how brown the meat got without any oil.

    I have a sister-in-law who hates soup — any kind. I can’t even comprehend that! I could eat soup every day. Choosing my favorite is hard, though….I’ll say tortilla soup. I might give you a different answer tomorrow. I have a chicken carcass in my crockpot right now that will be beautiful, rich stock in about another 48 hours. I’ll have to check out some of your chicken soup recipes when it’s done. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Once the weather starts to get colder, my husband starts to request my vegetarian chili. The secret ingredient is a few squares of bittersweet chocolate…so good!!

    My favorite healthy soup is using up the vegetables in the fridge. Nevercthe same, but loaded with veggies in a tomato base.

    “However, I would rather finish a dish wish a drizzle of high quality olive oil than coat a pan with hundreds of calories that you won’t even taste in the final product.” <——Great point!

    My favorite healthy soup recipe is a soup I make when I can't keep up with my CSA greens. It's full of greens but potatoes give it a creamy texture. I just love it even though it looks like swamp water. :)
