The chilly and cold weather days are a great time to make a steaming pot of soup! I guess you could call this recipe “semi-homemade”—except for the ground beef, it’s made with canned ingredients. I like it better than canned vegetable soup though, and it’s simple to put together.
You can make this soup in a large pot or Dutch oven. I use my cast-iron Dutch oven and that works really well. Serve this delicious soup with a salad and some thick crusty bread for lunch or dinner—it’s guaranteed to warm you up! 🙂
SIMPLE VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP by NancyC
Makes 6 to 8 servings
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 (14.5-ounce) cans mixed vegetables (like Veg-All®), drained
- 1 (14.5-ounce) can beef or vegetable broth
- 1 medium-size onion, finely chopped
- 2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced or crushed tomatoes, undrained
- 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper, or your favorite seasoning, to taste
In large pot or Dutch oven, crumble and brown ground beef over medium heat until fully cooked; drain excess grease.
Add the canned vegetables and broth into the pot with the beef; stir to combine ingredients. Then add in the chopped onion, diced or crushed tomatoes, and tomato sauce; stir well.
Add garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients together and heat to boiling; then reduce heat and simmer the soup for 1 hour. Serve with crusty bread and a salad!

I am going to make this. It looks so yummy! It will be wonderful to have a quick recipe for this busy season!
That’s what I like about it–it’s so easy to put together!
I found this on Pinterest a few months ago and it is now my go to vegetable beef soup recipe! I have made it at least three times and I’m making it again tonight! It’s so delicious and so easy
Glad you like the soup, Ella! It’s one of my favorites, too! 🙂
I threw it in the crock pot on low all day. Easy to put together and great to come home to. Thanks!
You’re welcome, and glad you liked the soup, Jaime!
I just saw this on Pinterest. My family really likes it. I love how easy it is to make. I didn’t have stewed tomatoes one night and used Rotel with lime and cilantro. It gave it a little kick and taste a lot better than I anticipated.
