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.

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)

  • 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.

  • 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.

    My favorite soup recipe is for something we call “Cure-It-All” Chicken Soup…homemade stock, lots of onion, carrots, celery, mushrooms, ginger, chicken. A little soy sauce, a little balsamic. I am feeling better already. Always have a couple of portions in the freezer in case of emergency. When I visit my kids, I always bring a quart or two of this for them.

    My sweetie does not like ‘soups’, I usually thicken them can call it a stew or a gravy and the meal is a hit! :D

    I am always looking for new soup recipes that are more healthy. Soups are just so easy for being a 1 container meal for taking to work for lunch. My latest favorite is probably chicken and wild rice made a little healthier by not using roux.

    My favorite is any variation of a chicken or beef and vegetable soup…especially on a cold day like today!

    I love all kinds of soup. Chicken tortilla is one of my favorites. My family is not such soup fans, just means I have warm lunches all week, or leftovers to freeze for a future busy day.
