It was cold this morning, and I had a "hankering" for some home-made veggie soup. So, this afternoon, I went to work:
2 lbs Top Sirloin Steak
1 small white onion
4 small potatoes
1 lb. bag of Petite Frozen Veggies
2 - 28 oz. cans of diced tomatoes
1 cup frozen lima beans (optional)
1 tbsp. Kosher salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
