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
6 large green onions
2 green peppers
1 or 2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes
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.

It looks delicious and healthy and I appreciate the fact that you cared to share the receipt with everyone!
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.

This looks delicious. I love making soups and stews during the cold months. We’re making turkey soup here soon.
David Smith says
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.
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
YOU CAN ALSO USE THE JUICE FROM THE TOMATOES INSTEAD OF THE V8 BUT THAT DOES AT SOME SPARK. ALSO IF U ARE USING MEAT YOU CAN ALSO USE SOME OF THE MEAT JUICES
