Ingredients for 6 servings:
1.5 lbs. lean ground beef
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 Tbsp minced garlic
4 cups low-sodium beef broth, or 1 cup more for a more brothy soup
1 (15 oz) can fire roasted tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
3 cups peeled and cubed Russet potatoes (cut about 1/2-inch thick)
1 tsp dried oregano, or 1 Tbsp fresh
3/4 tsp dried thyme, or 2 tsp fresh
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup frozen peas (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Crumble in beef, then cook and break up beef until no longer pink, about 6 – 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels, leave 1 Tbsp fat in pot drain of excess.
Add onion, carrots, and celery and saute 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 minute longer.
Pour in beef broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, Worcestershire, browned beef, potatoes, oregano and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bring mixture to a light boil, cover then reduce heat to low and let simmer, until potatoes are tender, about 25 – 35 minutes.
Stir in peas and let heat through. Stir in parsley and serve warm.
