  1. In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil until it shimmers. Add beef, onion, potatoes and garlic. Saute until beef is no longer pink and potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place carrots and 1/2 cup water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high 5 minutes, until tender.
  3. Drain beef mixture and return to pot with carrots, corn, green beans, tomatoes, juice cocktail, water, salt, pepper, thyme and bay leaf. Simmer over low heat 30 minutes, until flavors are well blended and soup is hot. Discard bay leaf before serving. (Alternatively, combine drained beef with remaining ingredients in slow cooker and cook 2-3 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low.).
