  1. 1 lb (450g) beef stew meat, cut into small cubes
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 1 onion, diced
  4. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 2 carrots, diced
  6. 2 celery stalks, diced
  7. 1 cup green beans, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  8. 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  9. 1 cup diced tomatoes (canned or fresh)
  10. 6 cups beef broth
  11. 2 bay leaves
  12. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  13. Salt and pepper to taste
  14. Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Beef:

    • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
    • Add the beef stew meat cubes to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside.
  2. Sauté Aromatics:

    • In the same pot, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant and softened.
  3. Add Vegetables:

    • Stir in the diced carrots, celery, green beans, and corn kernels. Cook for another 5 minutes, allowing the vegetables to soften slightly.
  4. Combine Ingredients:

    • Return the browned beef to the pot. Add the diced tomatoes, beef broth, bay leaves, and dried thyme. Stir well to combine all ingredients.
  5. Simmer:

    • Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let the soup simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  6. Season and Finish:

    • After an hour of simmering, taste the soup and season with salt and pepper according to your preference. Remove the bay leaves.
    • If the soup is too thick, you can add more beef broth or water to reach your desired consistency.
  7. Serve:

    • Ladle the hot vegetable beef soup into bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
    • Serve the soup hot with crusty bread or crackers on the side for a comforting and hearty meal.
  8. Storage:

    • Leftover vegetable beef soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It also freezes well for longer storage. Simply thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat on the stove or in the microwave before serving.

Enjoy your delicious and nutritious homemade vegetable beef soup!
