Wintery Vegetable and Beef Soup
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Any vegetables can be added. The ones listed here are just examples, please add or substract as desired and use what you have in the refrigerator! The small yam gets chunked up and browned along with the meat and this adds such a nice sweetness. You can leave the beef out and make this a total vegetable dish.
1-1/2 pounds beef chuck roast, cut into 1-2 inch cubes
Dredge the cubes of meat and the yam with flour, salt, and pepper. Heat oil in a dutch oven or other heavy bottomed casserole and then brown meat and yam pieces on all sides, about 8 minutes total. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, loosely covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until ingredients are tender and flavors have blended, adjusting seasonings as desired.
