Basic Beef Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup

1+ lb. left-over roast beef or fresh stew meat cubed
1 large can tomato juice
3-4 bags frozen vegetable soup mix vegetables
2 beef bouillon cubes
2 Tablespoons Dales or other steak seasoning (liquid)
1 large onion* sautéd with meat above
2-3 Tablespoons dried parsley
1 Tablespoon Mrs. Dash
1 Bay Leaf

Sauté fresh meat with onion just until browned in dutch oven.  If using leftover meat, brown onion, then add tomato juice and meat on Medium high heat until onion is tender.  Put in large dutch oven (or crock pot) and combine all other ingredients.  Cook until vegetables look sufficiently dead (should not crunch! Lol).  Freezes well and even better reheated.

Can use ham instead and/or ham bone (or ham hocks) in place of meat—adds much more flavor!
