Vegetable Beef Soup

I never ever post recipes on here but since I love making vegetable beep soup in the winter I figured I would share my recipe. It is super easy!

1 lb beef stew meat
1 onion
2 potatoes (peeled)
1 bag of mixed vegetables (16 oz)
2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes (if you want this in there) 
3 1/2 cups beef broth (or 2 14-oz cans)
2 small bay leaves
2 teaspoons garlic powder

3 cups vegetable juice (I use tomato juice)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

I liked to add noodles to my soup, so I add about half a box of whatever noodles I have laying around!

1. In your large pot or dutch oven, brown your stew meat in Olive Oil on medium-high. Make sure all sides are brown. 
2. Add in the rest of your ingredients! 
3. Bring to a boil.

4. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until beef is almost tender, for about a hour. 
5. Cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes longer, or until your beef is tinder and your potatoes are done. 
s, potatoes, corn, bay leaves and garlic.
Serve and season with freshly ground black pepper, hot sauce, or crumbled saltines, if desired.

If you want to add pasta into it, cook them while everything is simmering and add them at the very end. It makes more of a stew but I love it. Also, make some cornbread to go with it. Super easy and super yummy!

(as you can tell, I took this after I ate, so sorry for the picture being so bad. I had to literally stick my phone over inside the big pot because it was down at the bottom but it was really good!)
