  • 1 and 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 medium diced yellow onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 cups diced peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1-16- ounce organic frozen mixed vegetables
  • 32- ounces of ounces of beef stock
  • 2 cups of organic diced tomatoes undrained
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon of dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper optional
  • kosher salt to own taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to own taste
  1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven, cook the lean ground beef and the diced yellow onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain the lean ground beef for about 5 minutes.
  2. While lean ground beef is draining sauté the minced garlic for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the lean ground beef, diced potatoes, sliced celery, organic mixed vegetables (I used an organic mixture of corn, peas, and carrots), beef stock, diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, dried basil, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, to the Dutch oven; stir well. Heat to a light boil. Reduce the heat to low; cover and simmer for about 18 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.
  4. Ladle into bowls and serve with crusty bread, oyster crackers, or crackers of choice.
