Vegetable Beef Soup

A hearty Vegetable Beef Soup with melt-in-your-mouth slow cooked chunks of beef, potato and vegetables simmered in a herb infused savoury broth. You’ll love how the broth of this beef soup recipe is slightly thickened so it’s like gravy and has extra flavour from a secret ingredient!

So many beef soups are watery and dull. Not this one!!! The thing that sets this beef soup recipe apart from the rest is the broth. It’s slightly thickened so it’s more like a thinnish gravy. It’s infused with herb flavour and also gets an extra depth of flavour from the secret ingredient: red wine. Or beer or stout. (They’re all good)

It’s not about boozing up our soup! It’s about adding complexity and character to the soup broth flavour without simmering for hours up hours like we do with Beef Stew and Pot Roast.

Without the wine, the broth still tastes very, very good.

With the wine, it’s stellar! (And in care you’re concerned, the alcohol gets cooked out, just leaving behind flavour.)


1 pound (450g) beef stew meat, cubed
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, sliced
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 potato, diced
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
4 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, sauté until fragrant.
Add the cubed beef stew meat to the pot. Brown the meat on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
Once the beef is browned, add the sliced carrots, chopped celery, diced potato, diced tomatoes (including the juice from the can), beef broth, dried thyme, and dried oregano to the pot. Stir to combine.
Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the beef is tender and the vegetables are cooked through.
Taste the soup and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
Enjoy your homemade vegetable beef soup!
