Use cubed beef and chopped potatoes in this easy-to-make soup.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours, 45 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 55 minutes


  • 6 cups water
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 pound beef, cubed
  • 2 large stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 medium/large carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 medium potatoes, diced
  • salt, pepper and garlic to taste


Bring the water to a boil and add the bouillon cubes and meat. Cook for about 15 minutes or so at a full boil, then skim any yuck that rises to the top. Add the celery, onions and carrots now. Cook for 2 hours on low, just so the broth is still moving. Then add the potatoes. Cook for another 20 minutes, season, cook another 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. - Matrinka
