Our rain storm brought back cold weather, so soup sounded good (and quick) for dinner last night. I made a big pot, so it may get recycled tonight, along with an ‘everything’ loaf of French bread. Yum…
This recipe actually came from Joy’s church as one of their standby, feed-a-crowd-in-a-hurry meals. It did not have any seasonings in the original version, and I can’t cook without them, so I have embellished the original recipe.
6 c water (I used beef stock)
1 lb ground beef
1 L can chopped tomatoes, undrained
1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables
1 pkg onion soup mix
2 cubes of beef bouillon (use if cooking with water)
½ c macaroni or rice
salt & pepper
Brown and drain the ground beef. Add water and bring to a boil. (The original recipe called for cooking the beef in the boiling water rather than browning it.) Add remaining ingredients and simmer for one hour. Freezes well.
Bon appetit, y’all!
