Caldo de Res

I made this soup the other night when it was sooo cold. It was super good. Of course it's much better when my Grandma makes it, but I'm getting the hang. I forgot the cabbage, but my Mom didn't contest. :) I made Mexican rice and homemade tortillas to go along with it. I was good, only had one serving. :):)

2 lbs beef stew meat
salt, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
4 ears corn
6 celery ribs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
3 tomatoes cut into wedges (I used 1 can stewed tomatoes)
3 zuchinni, cut into 2-inch chunks
2 onions, cut into 6 wedges
1/2 head cabbage, cut into quarters
1 green bell pepper, sliced

Brown meat in a little bit of oil, add onion and cook for approx 5 minutes. Aadd water to cover by 6 inches. Bring to boil, reduce heat and boil gently for 45 minutes.
Stir in salt, garlic powder. Then add corn, celery and carrots. Boil another 15 minutes.
Add potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, onion, cabbage, and bell pepper. Boil for 15 minutes longer. Serve with rice and tortillas. Yummm
