Frugal Soup...make it more frugal!

This is a bowl of Beef-n-Rice Soup. I used some of my bone broth as a base and just tossed in some veggies; carrots, celery, onions, and 1 bag of frozen veggies. (Rosemary is my secret to this soup!-love rosemary!)

For the meat, I often will use cheap steaks. I will simmer them on low in a little water and about a quarter cup of vinegar for about 20 to 30 minutes, then add the rest and simmer for about 45 mins to an hour.

Now, all that's pretty frugal, but to stretch this frugal pot even farther, I added another cup of leftover brown rice and another cup or two of broth and it was served as the 'side' dish for the next day's meal!

(The 'next day's meal' was My Lil' Roasted Chicken with carrots and turnips.)
