Easy Vegetable Beef Soup

vegetable beef soupLast night I tried this recipe for the first time. I needed something easy to feed my large family on a budget. My kids aren't very picky, but there are so many of them, it's sometimes difficult to find something that they all like and ask me to make again. Through Pinterest, I found the original recipe on Stacy Makes Cents, and I adapted it just a little bit to fit our family size.

The recipe was labeled as a crockpot recipe, but unfortunately, I forgot to start dinner until it was too late for the crock. So, I just waited until about 4 p.m., threw everything into a pot on the stove and let it simmer until we were ready to eat. This meal was a huge hit! The kids were fighting over who got to eat the leftover for lunch today. I think it took me about 10 minutes in prep time, and part of that time I was holding the baby, so I was operating one-handed. I paired the soup with biscuits to round it out.

Easy Vegetable Beef Soup


  • 1 pound ground beef (you could also use ground venison or turkey)
  • 2 cans of beans, drained and rinsed (I used black and kidney)
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 12 oz frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 cans beef broth
  • 1 & 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 & 1/4 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1 & 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper


    Cook and drain the ground beef. While it's cooking, combine the other ingredients in your crockpot or pot for the stove, whichever you're using. Once the beef is done, add it to other ingredients and stir.

    If you're using a crockpot, cook on low for 8 hours. If you're using the stovetop, I would recommend bringing it to a low boil and then simmering for at least an hour.
