Springtime Stew is the perfect meal for when you're craving a lighter meal but it's still soup weather outside. It's light yet hearty and oh, so delicious.
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Place in a stock pot and cover with water. Heat to boiling and then reduce to a simmer .
Add the onion, carrots, celery, beef broth and tomato sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the cabbage and zucchini and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Add the green beans and corn, including the liquid from the cans and stir together. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve over egg noodles.
* This can easily be made vegetarian by omitting the beef and replacing the beef broth with vegetable broth.
