This was a good start to how I made my soup. I used Virgin Olive Oil, minced garlic, diced celery & onion to my pan first, browned, then added the beef to brown. I also add bay leaf and basil to my soup. Turned out great. Ate some and froze the rest!

Love this soup! I use Clammato tomato juice coctail and it tastes great. Usually end up using 3 cups tomato juice and 4 cups water. Also add cans of green beans, corn, and diced tomatoes at the end.

Sauté of celery, onion, and 1 tsp minced garlic in olive oil before adding beef to brown. Added bay leaf. Used 4 cups beef broth and 2 cups water. Near finish added green beans, corn, peas and 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes.

This was very tasty. I didn't have any vegetable juice so I used tomato sauce and beef broth. I had to add a lot of extra seasoning but that okay. Brought this to Sunday dinner after church and everyone liked it :)
