Italian Beef and Bean Soup

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Italian beef and bean soup really hit the spot on a chilly day! This is thick and hearty bursting with beans, beef and garlic flavors. The meat can be ground or chunky. We love the vegetables added and it is basically a meal all in one bowl.

Mom used to make this beef and bean soup all winter long. It sure hit the spot with a loaf of homemade Italian bread back in the 1960s growing up in Upstate New York.

You can't beat good homemade comforting soup like this one to keep you warm.

Childhood Memories



This soup is full of delicious beef and beans, what a great combination.


I really like to add barley instead of orzo sometimes. I love barley soup and it gives it a thicker consistency.


Grandma used to make this soup when I was a child and loaded it up with oyster crackers.


Oh, the fond memories I have of that soup! Now I make it all the time.

What an easy soup to make!



I really love to make a huge pot of soup and freeze it in individual containers.


I like to have lots of soups on hand in the freezer during the colder months.


Sure beats having to cook all day and it's perfect when you're feeling a little down and out.

Comforting During the Winter Cold Months



The soup is full of healthy vitamins and just what the doctor ordered for any cooler days in the year.


We make it all year long and adjust with vegetables from the garden.


We just love to add chunks of fresh zucchini or yellow squash in the addition of all the rest of the yummy ingredients to make the most comforting soup there is out there.


This one trumps them all! If you love beef then this Italian beef and bean soup will be perfect for you!
