Ground Beef Vegetable Soup 🍲


2 pounds ground beef

4 carrots, diced

4 celery ribs, chopped

1 onion, chopped

4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed

1 (15 ounce) can green beans, drained and rinsed

1 (15 ounce) can peas, undrained

1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can whole tomatoes, crushed

ground black pepper to taste

1 bay leaf, or more to taste

⅛ teaspoon ground thyme

¼ cup water, as needed


Crumble  ground beef into a stockpot over medium-high heat; cook and stir until  beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, 7 to 10 minutes.  Drain and discard any excess grease.

Stir in carrots, celery, and onion; cook and stir until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.

Stir  in potatoes, corn, green beans, undrained peas, tomato sauce, and  crushed whole tomatoes. Season with black pepper; add bay leaf and  thyme.

Pour in 1/4 cup water if needed, replenishing as needed while cooking.

Bring soup to a simmer; cover and cook, stirring regularly, until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour.

Enjoy 🤗
