TIPS FOR MAKING THIS VEGETABLE-BEEF SOUP AMAZING:
Plan ahead of time since the meat in this soup has to be simmered for at least an hour in order to become soft.
After simmering with the meat for many hours, the carrots, onions, and celery have become quite soft. If you like crisper vegetables, you may sauté the vegetables first, then remove them from the pan and set them aside to be added later, along with the potatoes.
I prefer to serve the veggie beef soup with a side of bread; it’s really delicious!!!
