This was a good start to how I made my soup. I used Virgin Olive Oil, minced garlic, diced celery & onion to my pan first, browned, then added the beef to brown. I also add bay leaf and basil to my soup. Turned out great. Ate some and froze the rest! Read More

This was very tasty. I didn't have any vegetable juice so I used tomato sauce and beef broth. I had to add a lot of extra seasoning but that okay. Brought this to Sunday dinner after church and everyone liked it:) Read More
