How to Prepare Vegetable Beef Soup

  1. Season the Beef: Begin by generously seasoning the cubed beef chuck roast with salt and pepper, ensuring each piece is evenly coated.
  2. Brown the Beef: In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the beef in batches to avoid overcrowding, allowing each piece to brown for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the beef once browned and set aside.
  3. Sauté Aromatics: Reduce the heat to medium and add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the same pot. Sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic fragrant.
  4. Deglaze and Simmer: Return the browned beef to the pot. Add the beef broth, canned tomatoes with their juices, and Italian seasoning. Stir well, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and let it simmer for 45-65 minutes, or until the beef is fork-tender.
  5. Add Veggies: Stir in the cubed potatoes, sliced carrots, and celery. Continue to simmer for an additional 15 minutes.
  6. Final Touches: Add the cut green beans and corn to the pot. If you prefer softer beans, consider adding them with the other vegetables. Simmer everything together for 10 more minutes.
  7. Season and Serve: Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed. Serve the soup hot, garnished with fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.

How to Store Vegetable Beef Soup

Cool the Vegetable Beef Soup completely before deciding on storage. For refrigeration, place the soup in airtight containers and keep it chilled for up to 4 days. When it comes to freezing, pour the cooled soup into freezer-safe bags or containers, leaving some space for expansion. The soup can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator when ready to enjoy. Reheat on the stove over medium heat, stirring occasionally until heated through, to revive its comforting taste and texture.
