Vegetable Beef Soup

So I went grocery shopping for the apocalypse (that’s what it felt like) at Krogers last week while my parents were still here. Fresh produce is pretty expensive over here too (not as bad as NJ, but still), so I decided not to get any of that until after my parents leave. Instead, we came across these rather convenient 12 oz. bags of frozen veggies of all kinds of different blends (e.g. the “asian vegetable mix” has green beans, mushrooms, onions and broccoli). They were $1 each, so I stocked up on them. :X

Vegetable Beef Soup


-dried basil
-dried oregano
-dried parsley
-frozen vegetables
-1 tbsp chicken essence
-ground beef
-garlic powder
-chopped onions
-2 tbsp cornstarch
-soy sauce

1) Marinate the beef for ~2 hours with pepper, garlic powder, chopped onions, cornstarch, some salt, sugar and soy sauce.
2) In a pot, throw in some dried basil, oregano, parsley, pepper and chicken essence. (My dad was basically using whatever spices I had. :O )
3) Add some frozen vegetables (in this case, I had green beans, broccoli, onions + mushrooms).
4) Bring to a boil. Add in the meat last and then serve!
