When you think of Vegetable Soup, do you think of soup with or without the Beef?
I grew up understanding that Vegetable Soup will contain Beef and Vegetables! As I have traveled different parts of the United States, I have discovered there are many that think Vegetable Soup will not contain beef, only vegetables. Isn’t it funny how much normalcy we find in our childhood? As we discover the world outside of our childhood homes, we see there are many viewpoints in life, even down to our soup recipes.
I had served this recipe once at a party and a patron was very confused as to why there was beef in his soup when the sign clearly stated, ‘Vegetable Soup’. I now refer to my soup recipe as “Beef and Vegetable Soup,” so there is no confusion!
I usually get a craving for Beef and Vegetable Soup when the weather is cold or rainy, or both! The fresh tasting vegetables, the tender bites of meat, all marinated in a tomato broth can really warm you up from the inside out. And what can be more comforting that that?…
