1 Can Wyler's Beef Vegetable Soup Starter
2 lbs. bite size stew or soup meat
1/2 head med-size cabbage, sliced [optional]
6 small potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, diced
2 large cans Veg-All
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 can tomato juice (or 1 small can tomato paste)
2 bay leaves
Chili powder to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Salt and pepper (or seasoned salt) to taste
In large pot, brown meat in a little oil. Add 7 cups water and soup starter stuff (dried veggies and broth packet). Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer at least a couple of hours.
This makes a LOT of soup. It filled my dutch oven all the way up. I have only made it once and next time I'm going to experiment with the amounts and try to make less.
