3 Ingredient Vegetable Beef Soup . . . a quick and easy meal!

School is getting ready to start. In fact, next week children will be back in school. So, from my years of being a public school music teacher, I know that “Back to School” means  a need for “Quick and Easy” meals. This 3 Ingredient Vegetable Beef Soup is definitely Quick and Easy! And simple, but delicious!

Making the 3 Ingredient Vegetable Beef Soup . . .

I found this recipe back in the spring when I was looking for some really good 3 ingredient recipes. It looked good, so I decided to give this one a try. The three ingredients are:

  • Ground round (I only buy ground round because of the much lower fat content.)
  • V-8 juice (This is the FIRST time I bought or used V-8 juice, but I was not disappointed!!!)
  • Frozen mixed vegetables for soup

The frozen soup vegetables I found at the local Harp’s grocery store had okra in it. LOL! I never put okra in my vegetable soup, but it was quite tasty!
