Party In the Pot

Hearty Beef and Vegetable Soup
{Grandma double-ya.. 'W'}

This is my maternal grandmother’s recipe- it tastes pretty darn good on a lugubrious (weather-wise, or emotions-wise, for that matter!) day. I made my soup a bit different, and those alterations are asterisked.

1 ½ lbs ground beef (lean)
3 onions, chopped
1 green pepper, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 quart water
*1 quart veg. stock
2 medium carrots, pared and diced
5 potatoes pared and diced
1 Tbsp salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
*1 Tbsp Herbs de Provence
1 can tomatoes
1 can whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can kidney beans, undrained
1 can lima beans, undrained( I didn’t use these)
*2 cans cannellini beans

In a large saucepan, brown ground beef with onions. Add green pepper and celery and cook until tender. Add remaining ingredients and cover. Simmer everything until vegetables are tender. Makes about 12 servings.

Love beef stewy things, especially with cannelini beans. It looks easy to do also! Great photo! Thanks!
