Total Calories: 119


1 1/2 pounds stew meat (or ground chuck)
1 medium to large onion, chopped
1 (46-ounce) can tomato juice or V-8 juice
1 (16-ounce) package frozen green beans
1 (16-ounce) package frozen carrot
2 (16-ounce) packages frozen mixed vegetables
1 (16-ounce) package frozen whole-kernel corn
1 (16-ounce) can cream-style corn
1/2 gallon water
1 (16-ounce) package frozen green peas
1 cup small elbow macaroni
4 medium potatoes, diced
1 seasoning to taste


Brown meat in large soup pot until uniform in color. Drain off any excess fat. Add onion, tomato juice, beans, carrots, mixed vegetables, corn, and water. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are done (approximately 1 – 1 1/2 hours). Add peas and pasta to meat mixture. Simmer approximately 30 minutes.

In separate pot, bring potatoes to a boil; take off heat and allow to stand. Add drained potatoes and any seasonings to soup pot, and simmer until ready to serve. If container is crowded, wait until the peas and pasta are added to add water, but bring soup to high and heat thoroughly before returning to simmer. (You may have to add more water when reheating.)
