Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup
We are a soup sort of family. All year long, we like to enjoy soup for dinner. In the summer, we will enjoy soup paired with a salad and during the fall and winter months, we like to enjoy our soup with bread. Soup is great year round but when fall and winter arrive, I like to bust out my crock-pot and whip up a big batch of soup that I know we can eat for a couple of days. Slow cooked soup seems to get better the longer it cooks.
Vegetable beef soup is one of my families favorite soups. They love when I make a big batch of Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Stew or when I make this super delish Vegetable Beef Soup. Perfect for warming up on a cold day.
My kiddos can be picky about eating their vegetables. When I load them in a soup, casserole, or stew, they do not complain much. I will find a few peas in the bottom of one of their bowls, green beans in another, ha ha. But in general they will actually eat the veggies when they are immersed in a sauce or broth.
Making soups in the slow cooker is so easy. I usually brown off my meat a bit before adding it to the Crock-Pot. but, you can actually skip that step if you are pressed for time. Dropping everything in the slow cooker and then letting it cook all day makes for the most tender meat and veggies.
If you are a fan of Vegetable Beef Soup, this recipe will become one of your favorites. With just a package of beef, veggies, broth, and a few seasonings you can have this one cooking in know time at all.
