I had to make this soup just as soon as I saw it. I read the reviews and then made my own personal preference changes to it. First, I used the best groung round I can buy as this is a base to this recipe. I browned it with fresh ground pepper and garlic powder. I then roughly diced a med yellow onion, 1 large green pepper, and 1/2 of a med red pepper, and 2 cloves of garlic and added it to the meat just before the meat was completely browned through and continuted browning until veggies were tender. I drained a very small amount of grease, and added 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce,1 entire 42 oz. bottle of V-8 juice, 3 beef bouillion cubes, 3 cans petite diced tomatoes with juice,1 cup water, the brown sugar, and no salt. I simmered for about 30 -40 minutes, then added only one cup of basmanti rice, which really thickened it up. Next time I will use regular white rice, I think that will stand up better in this soup. I served with a bit of finely grated cheddar cheese on top of everyones bowl and added a slice of garlic bread on the plate and it was a smash hit! This is a recipe that anyone can play with to make it their own, and be a perfect comfort food favorite. It is easy, fairly fast, and a keeper!
