OLD FASHIONED BEEF-VEGETABLE SOUP
Ingredients:
3 lb meaty crosscut beef shank bones, cut into 3-inch pieces.
10 cups water.
3 tablespoons beef-flavor instant bouillon.
1 ¹/₂ teaspoons salt.
1/2 teaspoon pepper.
¹/₂ teaspoon dried thyme leaves.
2 dried bay leaves.
4 cups vegetable juice.
3 cups cubed potatoes (3 medium).
3 cups coarsely chopped cabbage.
2 cups frozen small whole onions.
2 cups frozen cut green beans.
4 medium carrots, sliced (2 cups).
3 medium stalks celery, sliced (1 ¹/₂ cups).


Method:
 In 8-quart stockpot, place beef bones and water. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 30 minutes. Skim off and discard any residue that rises to the surface.

Stir in bouillon, salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaves. Return to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 2 to 2 ¹/₂ hours longer or until meat are tender.

Return meat to broth. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
