Vegetable beef soup is one of my family’s favorites! And I make my vegetable beef soup out of leftover pot roast.
No worries if you don’t have any leftover pot roast, though. You can also make this vegetable beef soup by browning up some stew beef. More on that in a second.👌🏻
Side note: If you’d rather make this in an Instant Pot, I also have an Instant Pot vegetable beef soup here. Same recipe, only with pressure cooking instructions.
It is no secret that I love soup in every season! This vegetable beef soup is Just. SO. Good. It is perfect on a chilly night (or any night, really) with a pan of skillet corn bread.
I modified Better Homes and Garden’s version to use up some leftover pot roast. And it was so good that I added it to our normal rotation.
Now I make this vegetable beef soup almost every time we have pot roast. It makes such an easy dinner, and it is a great way to make over your leftovers.
The ingredient lineup is super simple.
Also, this recipe is very forgiving. If you have a little more, or a little less, of any of the meat or veggies…it is still good! I have thrown in extra veggies as well…some lima beans, black-eyed peas, etc. Whatever I need to use up!
If you don’t have any leftover pot roast, you can pick up some beef stew meat or boneless roast and cut it into cubes. Season it up with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder, and brown it in some olive oil until cooked through. Remove it from the pan, and follow the rest of the recipe as written.
