  • 2 teaspoons thyme (dried)
  • 1 teaspoons basil (dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoons parsley (dried)


  1. Warm oil over medium heat in a large soup pot. Add in stew beef and cook until browned. Add in diced yellow onion and celery and cook until tender.

  2. Once veggies are tender add in minced garlic and sautee for 30 seconds before adding in tomato paste.

  3. Next add in peeled and diced sweet potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and diced tomatoes.

Recipe Notes

  • Tip: When browning your meat make sure to not overcook. Cooking it in the soup will keep it tender and soft but overcooking could cause it to become tough.
