I’ve so enjoyed my mother’s beef vegetable soup (one of the fringe benefits of the finally dissipating vertigo), I thought I’d share it with you all. I know you’re not supposed to divulge family recipes, but that never made much sense to me. My moms should be proud of her sublime stew —
Brown one large package of stewed beef in a small amount of oil, then cover with beef broth and water. Slice one large onion, add to broth. Bring to a boil and simmer one hour. Then add one carrot slicked thick and cabbage, sliced thin. Simmer 30 minutes. Add one package of frozen mixed vegetables, cook on medium heat for 30 minutes. Add one potato, cut into chunks, cook andadditional 15 minutes. Add one can of stewed tomatoes (cut up), one can of rotelle tomatoes and one can of V-8 juice. Simmer 15 minutes, then turn off and let sit 30 minutes before serving.
