Fall is here, and so is soup season! By the way, it is my favorite season - so many soups and stew recipes are coming for you. This beef soup is an effortless soup with green beans, zucchini, ginger, carrots, beef, and mint, which can be eaten anytime. The soup is a healthy choice for any meal, breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

ingredients for a delicious and healthy green bean and beef soup

  • Beef. The best cut for this soup is chuck roast, chuck shoulder, or sirloin steak. The beef has to be very tender.
  • Carrots. Fresh carrots are the only carrots I use, as I don’t like the consistency of frozen carrots. But if you don’t have a problem, you can use frozen ones.
  • Onions. Whatever you have in hand. I like to use big yellow onions for my soups.
  • Garlic cloves
  • Bell pepper
  • Zucchini
  • Green beans. You can use fresh or frozen green beans.
  • Spring onions. They will add a lot of freshness to the dish.
  • Mint. Please use fresh mint, as it makes a big difference.
  • Cilantro.
  • Parsley.
  • White noodles. Delicious rice noodles like udon or glass noodles, you choose your favorite.

how to store the soup

  • Freezer. This soup can be the perfect meal prep soup. You make a good amount of it and store it in freezer-friendly containers. They can be stored in the freezer for about 6 months.
  • Fridge. The soup will last for about 3 days in the fridge. If you make just the basis (without the vegetables), you can even store it for a week in the fridge.
