Homemade Vegetable Beef Stew

The weather is starting to turn chilly around here so we decided to make a huge pot of homemade vegetable beef stew for dinner. There is just something magical about a warm mug of soup mixed with some snuggling with the family on a cool fall evening. We jumped in the car and headed out to buy our fresh ingredients to take home and make our fabulous vegetable beef stew.

Homemade Vegetable Beef Stew

Vegetable Stew, home made


6 large green onions

2 green peppers

1 or 2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes

3 carrots

10 oz or so of mushrooms

1 bunch of celery

half a head of cabbage

1 package of Lipton onion soup mix

1 or 2 bullion cubes

1 48oz can of V8 juice

Season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, curry and/or garlic powder

**Optional you can add stew meat or ground beef if you would like to add meat to your vegetable beef stew**


Start by adding 48 oz of V8 juice to a large pot. Slice green onions and saute in a pan with oil. Cut green peppers into bite size pieces and add to pot. Take outer leaves off cabbage and cut half of the cabbage into bite size pieces and add to pot. Cut Carrots and mushrooms and add.

Now it’s time to add your spices to taste.

If you would like a spicier soup add some curry or cayenne pepper. Add in your bullion cubes (beef or chicken is fine)

Cover and simmer on low heat for 2 hours.

My husband and kiddos loved the stew! I hope you do too!

 Note: If adding stew meat you will want to brown the cubes and add to soup while cooking. If adding hamburger you can brown this and add in at the end of the cooking time. The picture shown above is made with chopped ground beef. 


  1. Sounds delicious! I am getting ready to make and freeze some soups and stews…so I will definitely be making this one 🙂

  2. With fall weather in season, I’m so ready for stews… I just printed out your recipe and look forward to trying it soon.

  3. I make a similar beef stew with potatoes and cook it in the crock pot. It’s so easy. You put everything together in the morning and forget it until dinner time. Still waiting for fall weather in Tucson.

  4. Mmmm! You just made my mouth water! This soups looks so good! I just bought me a crock pot so I will def. try this recipe using it!

  5. There’s nothing like a hot bowl of stew when the days turn cold! I do mine in a crockpot and I just love walking into the house at the end of the day to that wonderful smell!

  6. This looks delicious. I love making soups and stews during the cold months. We’re making turkey soup here soon.

  7. Thanks for the recipe. I love beef stew and I would definitely add some meat to the recipe. It’s only about 31 F for a high today, so hot stew would be a great idea.

  8. I loved the recipe and have noted it down in my recipe book im sure my family and friends are going to like it as its something unique and light in calories

  9. This sounds like such a great recipe. I pinned it to my Pinterest board to give it a try next shopping trip!

  10. I actually don’t have a recipe for beef veggy stew so this is great! I will give it a try over my Christmas vacation.

  11. Love love soup! Love soup recipes! This looks so yummy and easy to make! Will be making this soon for those cold Michigan days/nights.

  12. Thank you for the recipe… This looks yummy.. So going to try this and my hubby love stew so im sure this he will just love.. 🙂

  13. Looks quite tasty, but I would use my own homemade onion soup mix, instead of the processed (chemical laden) commercial kind.
