Wham bam! Thank you ma’am, vegetable beef soup!


Getting the urge to make soup sweeps over me at random intervals and times. But making vegetable beef soup can be time consuming. So, here’s a quick soup that comes together quicker than a cheap hooker’s legs when she discovers I’m broke! What did he just say?

To set the stage, I often like to use a small crock pot that holds about 8 cups of soup (2 quarts). That’s enough soup to last one person for about four meals or half that for two people. I then like to grab a few fresh veggies while also using three cans of assorted veggies. Note that left over amounts go into storage containers to be used as side for other future meals.

Note: the slow cook pictured at tight is a Crock-Pot brand 2 quart model that sells for about $15 and which has received rave reviews! And, while I have a couple of other larger deals that I could use, I like this one the best!

Ingredients:

200 g stew meat cut into small pieces (~1 cup)

16 oz can petite diced tomatoes (1 cup)

½ small Russet potato, peeled and cubed (½ cup)

2 stalks of celery, sliced (½ cup)

1 beef bouillon cube

½ cup red cabbage

¼ cup white onion, rough cut

¼ cup peas

¼ cup whole corn

¼ cup green beans

Dash of Cayenne pepper (optional)

Hey! Listen up! None of the amounts stated above are set in concrete. I generally just eyeball everything as it gets thrown into the pot. If I’m missing something, I smile and then move on. The beef gets a quick sear in a hot frying pan before it is unceremoniously dumped in with everything else!

If there is some space left at the top, I add in some water. There! You’re done! If you are practiced, like I am, this whole deal goes together in under ten minutes. Cover the slow cooker, set it on high and just walk away for four hours. Then, before too long, you’ve got yourself one awesome soup!

Last thought. Biden is a crook.
