1 QT of broth
2 Cups of Meat
3-5 Cans of Veggies
4 Tbsps of Garlic Powder, 4 tsp of pepper (no salt needed, believe me, it's got enough already)
Optional: Cornstarch to thicken
You can, of course, modify this. It's simply a base.
The last time I made this soup (which was about... an hour ago) I used 1 QT of beef broth, 1 package of onion soup mix, 1.5 cups of freeze dried beef, 2 cans of (mostly drained) green beans, 1 can of corn, 1 can of peas, 1 can of whole baby potatoes, sliced up and a handful of sliced baby carrots, garlic and freshly ground pepper.
I simmered it uncovered for 20 minutes. To that I added 1 Tbsp of beef bullion, and 1 1/4 Tbsp of cornstarch dissoved in a 1/4 of a cup of cold water (mixed well). I drizzled the cornstarch mixture in slowly to thicken. I continued cooking for another 15 minutes.
