Easy Beef Vegetable Soup

I've been sick with a cold, so I was craving some vegetable soup. I asked my Mom for Dad's recipe (he was a Staff Sergeant cook in the army and made the best soups)...but she gave me this one, instead, assuring me it was "so good!" 

Well, I gotta hand to is! I just finished my 2nd bowl. Thought I'd share the easy peasy recipe with you all. It's from my Aunt Bernice.

Veg Soup

Easy Beef Vegetable Soup

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced (or 2 teaspoons minced garlic from a jar)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Saute the above until beef is browned. Then, add:

28 ounces diced tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
2 quarts of water
1/2 cup sugar
3 beef bouillon cubes

Simmer for 30 minutes. Then, add:

1 large bag of mixed frozen vegetables (or two small bags)

Simmer another 30 minutes.


Note: if you're not used to using sugar for your marinara sauces, chili or tomato-based soups, you may find the sweetness of this dish surprising. In fact, my son said it tasted like "candy on top of vegetables"; he didn't care for it. Next time, I think I'll try reducing the sugar to 1/4 cup.
