Souper Saturday!

It is snowing again, most of the decorating is done, and baking is going to be starting later today, so I decided that a nice big pot of soup would be perfect! It can be simmering while I am doing other things, and I set my timer to remind myself to go and give it a stir every once in a while.  Then into the fridge it goes, to cool down. 

This is one of those soups that is even better after it has chilled, giving the flavors time to blend and get some depth to them when it is reheated.  It can also be successfully frozen, and reheated, with a little extra beef broth. That is, IF you can resist eating it right away! The fragrance is always luscious, and makes your mouth water! :-)

My Hubs is already nosing around the pot, "just giving it a stir", so I have a feeling that this will be for lunch instead of supper.  Even my daughter, who will not touch stuffed green peppers, loves this soup! And corn bread is an excellent choice to eat along with it!

I didn't take detailed photos because this is an easy, straight forward recipe.

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

2 lbs. Lean Ground Beef
2 Onions, diced
1 - 28 Ounce Can Petite Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1 - 28 Ounce Can Tomato Sauce
2 Large Green Peppers, diced
96 Ounces of Beef Broth, either homemade, or purchased.
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
4 Tblsp. Cider Vinegar
1 Teasp. Seasoned Pepper
1 Cup Raw, White Rice
1 Small Bag Frozen Corn

In a large soup pot, brown the ground meat and diced onion.  Drain excess grease from meat.  Quickly add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and green peppers. Add broth. 

Blend in the brown sugar, vinegar, and seasoned pepper. 

Pour in the rice and corn, and bring soup to a gentle boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until rice is cooked and flavors has a chance to blend.

I hope that everyone enjoys this soup as much as we do!

Everyone stay warm, and stay safe! I'm thinking especially of those on the East coast, with all of the snow that is expected!  An excellent day to snuggle in with a bowl of hot soup, and a good book!!


  1. Hearty soup is such a comfort food, isn't it? Mmmm, looks good!

  2. It is so nice to see that I am not the only one that sets a timer to remember something. LOL This soup looks like something that I am going to have to try. You are probably right about it being lunch and not supper.


  3. That sounds very interesting. I think I'll add it to my "to try" list. :)
    Enjoy the snow and baking!

  4. Nothing like a bowl of soup on a cold wintry day! I am definitely going to have to try this - stuffed green peppers are my Hubby's favorite.
