Steak and veggie soup

I love soup. The kids aren't so crazy about it, so I tend to make it when I know I won't mind eating several days in a row.
I started with some chunked up sirloin
Seared it in a non-stick pan with a little pepper, garlic, and italian seasoning.

Drained the grease, added some reduced sodium chicken broth (since I wasn't aware I didn't have any tomatoes until too late), and simmered on medium high for about 15 minutes.

Threw in some frozen veggies and let it simmer on low for about 25 minutes. It looks like it would taste watery, but it is so flavorful. I'll let it sit overnight in the fridge, then I'll bag and freeze it in portions. When I'm ready to eat it, I'll add a little water and probably some more veggies  and toss it in the microwave for about 5 minutes. Low calorie, no added sodium, tons of flavor.
