  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 6 red potatoes, finely diced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 5 carrots, thinly sliced

  • 1 ½ cups water, divided

  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) bottle tomato-vegetable juice cocktail

  • 2 cups frozen green beans

  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Cook and stir beef, potatoes, and onion in a large pot over medium heat until beef is no longer pink. Cover and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, place carrots and 1/2 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until carrots are tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Drain grease from beef mixture. Add carrots, juice cocktail, green beans, corn, remaining 1 cup water, salt, and pepper to the pot. Simmer over low heat until flavors are well blended and soup is hot, about 30 minutes.
