Directions

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large stockpot set over medium heat. Cook and stir until meat is no longer pink. Drain off excess grease and add the olive oil. Heat the oil and add the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion is tender. Add cauliflower, jalapenos, shallot and mushrooms. Season with salt and cook for 8 to 10 minutes to release the water from the vegetables.
  2. Pour in the stewed tomatoes and season with red pepper flakes. Stir aggressively to break up the tomatoes. Pour in the beef broth and mixed vegetables and bring to a simmer. Cook until frozen vegetables are tender. Taste and adjust salt and pepper before serving.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Fantastic - a nice gut filling soup for this crazy Montana winter. Add a little red wine and it'll drive the people wild!

I only used one can of beef broth and added a lot of garlic salt and about 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. I also omitted the bag of frozen veggies but took the advice of a prior reviewer and added about 1 c. of red wine. My husband loved it! Topped with aged parmesean and served with fresh beer bread!

This turned out quite good, a really nice soup/stew. Liked the flavor with the peppers and spice, I added more. A quick and easy recipe suggestion that can easliy have different veggies or spices added or substitied to it.
