It can be easier to follow and keep track of this Hearty Italian Vegetable Beef Soup recipe as you make it if you use the French practice of mise en place.

It is used by experienced bakers and cooks around the world in order that they can ensure they have and can keep track of the ingredients they need in any recipe they are making. So for this Hearty Italian Vegetable Beef Soup recipe that includes well over one dozen different ingredients and seasonings, the mise en place practice can help you to keep track of the things that you are using to make this soup. There are two steps to the mise en place practice. The first step involves taking out all of the ingredients that are called for in the recipe, from the cupboards and fridge and wherever else they might be stored. This first step helps to make sure that you actually have all of the stuff that you need for the recipe. That way, you will not get half way through making your soup recipe only to discover that you do not have any tomatoes or some other ingredient. Nothing can be more frustrating than getting part way through a recipe and find out that you do not have all of the ingredients that you need to make it. So mise en place helps to ensure that does not happen to you. The second step of mise en place involves putting the ingredients out in the order that the recipe calls for you to add them in to the recipe. That way, you know when you have added the ingredient that you need, and do not forget or overlook some important element that is part of the recipe.
This is a simple soup to make, although it will take a bit of time because of all the ingredients that form it.
