Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add the oil to a 5-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef, onion, celery, carrot, and garlic, and cook until the meat is browned, about 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the beef broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green beans, Worcestershire, Italian herb seasoning, and black pepper. Bring up to a boil, and then cover the pot, turn the heat down to simmer, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the vinegar. Taste and add salt if desired.
  • Serve the soup garnished with fresh parsley if desired.

Notes

  • Net Carbs: 8g per serving
  • Be sure to check with your doctor before adding or taking away any foods from your diet! If your doctor tells you to avoid beef, you can make this recipe with ground chicken or turkey instead.
  • I don't add salt to this soup; to reduce the sodium even more, omit the Worcestershire sauce.
