Vegetable beef soup

I really sort of just made this one up. It tastes good, though, and was really easy to make.

6-8 c. water
2 c. low sodium beef broth
1 packet beef-onion soup mix
2 beef shanks (with the bone)
Bring to a boil, then simmer for at least an hour, or until the meat is really tender. Pull shanks out, and cut meat off the bone and into bite-sized pieces. Return to broth.
Add:
4-5 carrots, sliced
3-4 potatoes, peeled and diced
Cook until carrots and potatoes are soft. Then add:
1 bag frozen green beans
1 bag frozen corn
Cook until everything is hot.
If you put this in the fridge to serve the next day, you'll be able to skim off the fat that collects on the top.
