  • 1 pound stew beef, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup frozen green beans

  5. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the beef and vegetables are tender.
  6. Add the chopped cabbage, frozen corn kernels, and frozen green beans to the pot. Stir to combine.
  7. Continue to simmer the soup, uncovered, for another 15-20 minutes, or until the cabbage and other vegetables are tender.
  8. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary.
  9. Serve the hearty vegetable beef soup hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
