• Freezer Friendly - 25

    This is one of my own since the New York Times was so inconsiderate as
    to put up 24 freezer ready recipes. This is just to round out the last
    group of five. And it has the bonus of being pretty darned good.

    Title: Dave's Freezer Vegetable-Beef Soup
    Categories: Beef, Vegetables, Potatoes
    Yield: 9 Servings

    1 Can (or 2) frozen left-over
    - vegetables; corn, peas,
    - green beans, carrots, and/
    - or broccoli/cauliflower
    2 Sliced carrots; if needed
    3 Ribs celery w/tops; sliced
    2 md Onions; diced
    2 md Potatoes; peeled, diced 1/4"
    14 oz Can diced tomatoes;
    - undrained
    3 c Water
    1 ts Salt
    4 Cracked peppercorns
    1 lb Leftover beef; diced *
    3 ts GFS/Minor's beef base

    Take the container(s) of left-over vegetables from the
    freezer and put into a 5 (or so) quart crock-pot.

    While the pot is melting the frozen ingredients prepare
    the carrots, celery, onion, and taters. Add to the pot.

    Open the can of tomatoes, pour over other ingredients
    in the crock-pot.

    Heat the water to a simmer, add the beef, beef base and
    salt/pepper, stirring well until beef base is dissolved
    and all is well combined. Remove from heat and pour
    over crock-pot ingredients.

    Cover and cook for 3 to 4 hours (high) or 6 to 8 hours

    Serves six to twelve servings

    NOTE: I save bits and bobs of leftover veg in a washed
    and cleaned tomato juice can, covering each addition
    with water and freezing as I go. When I have a can (or
    two) full I am ready to make this soup.
