3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup small diced sweet onion
1 cup small diced celery
1 cup small diced carrots
salt and pepper
3/4 pound lean ground beef
1 cup small diced potato
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 1/2 teaspoons beef bouillon
3 teaspoons fish sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 can (15 ounce) diced petite tomatoes, undrained
1 carton (32 ounce) low-sodium vegetable broth
1/2 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
- In a large pot, warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Add in the onion, celery, and carrots; saute for 5 minutes until vegetables are tender. Season with a few dashes of salt and pepper.
- Add in the ground beef and cook, breaking up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until no pink remains, about 3 minutes. Season with a few more dashes of salt and pepper. Drain off fat, if necessary.
- Add in the potato, tomato paste, beef bullion, fish sauce, Worcestershire sauce, canned tomatoes with their juice, and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, but not mushy, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in peas and warm through.
- Ladle into bowls and enjoy!
- I use Better Than Bouillon beef base, instead of a bouillon cube.
- You can use beef broth instead of the vegetable broth, but the other ingredients might need to be adjusted.
