But here's a recipe that I make several times when fall weather hits. It's my daughter's FAVORITE soup recipe, so it is a keeper for sure.
1 pound extra lean ground beef (or I actually use ground turkey)
1 medium onion, chopped
4 red potatoes, washed but unpeeled, cut into cubes (2 cups)
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
6 cans beef broth
2 TBSP beef bouillion
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup catsup
1 pkg. frozen mixed vegetables (any assortment you like)
Combine ground beef and onion in large stock pot cooking over medium heat until beef is browned and thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain well. Add all remaining ingredients to stock pot except frozen vegetables. Mix well. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occassionally. Add frozen vegetables. Cover and simmer an additional 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Makes 8 servings. Serve with large loaf of crusty warm bread.
