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.

    I love to make this all the time – Saute onion, garlic in stock pot. add chicken stock, cannellini beans and bring to boil. Add chopped endive and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. It’s delicious over quinoa.

    First, congratulations on being almost to your goal! You are such an inspiration in so many ways, certainly your commitment to healthy living and body is a big one. Second, your soups are looking perfect for a brutally cold snowy day as today is in Colorado. You’ve inspired me to whip one up for dinner!

    My favorite soup is Tuscan Chicken Soup. It has white beans and pumpkin added to it.

    Here on the coast of Washington state, we have a lot of stormy days, so I make a big pot of
    soup once a week. I agree with you Liz, a bowl of soup is so much more satisfying
    than a sandwich!

    Vegetable soup is a favorite at our house. The kids love oyster crackers with soups but my husband and I prefer fresh bread!

    Soup is wonderful this time of year. And I’d go for the crusty bread too. Looks delicious!
