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 family’s 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, haha. 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 no time at all.

How to Make Vegetable Beef Soup in the Slow Cooker
First, add the seasonings to the cubed beef. Then add oil to a skillet and place the heat on medium. Add seasoned beef. Brown all sides and transfer to a CrockPot. I used a 6-quart CrockPot. I am sure a 5-quart version would work well too!
Now, add the mixed vegetables, tomatoes, beans, onions, bay leaf, garlic, season salt, and beef brother. Stir all of the ingredients together and place the lid on the slow cooker. Cook for 8-10 hours on high or 4-5 hours on low. Remove bay leaf and enjoy.
Cook for 8-10 hours on high or 4-5 hours on low. Remove bay leaf and enjoy.
I made this vegetable soup for dinner and then we also enjoyed it for our lunches for the past two days. The longer it cooks, the more flavor it has so, the leftovers will be even more delicious. Do you have a favorite slow cooker soup you enjoy during the fall and winter months?

This definitely is the best soup by far. I liked it so much I passed it on the my sister and she passed it on again and again…soooooooo good.
Yummy!! Made it tonight! Thank you for the brightness of the veggies! So easy.
Do you have a calorie count?
The soup was ok, but I had to add some Beef Better Than Bouillon. Just didn’t taste right without the added beef flavor. And I regret using the Seasoned Salt. Gave the soup a weird smell. Oh well, next time I’ll omit it.
I had to add 2 tablespoons of better than
Bouillon it’s a paste in a jar after
Adding it the soup was delicious.
There is a mistake in your recipe. Check the cook time. You put “cook on high for 8_10 hours on high or 4_5 hours on low.”. It was delicious! Thank you.
What is nutritional information
Love this recipe! It’s super easy to make and very delicious!
Reminds me of my Grandmother’s vegetable beef soup. Like a hug in a bowl. My husband loves it too. Thank you!
This was so easy and turned out amazing!
Would it make a big difference if I used sweet potatoes instead of red potatoes?
Hi Brittney! I have not tried sweet potatoes with this soup recipe. But, I bet it would be delicious. Let us know if you give it a try.
I’ve added diced sweet potatoes and it’s wonderful!
Never mind. My eyes must have been crossed.
They are mixed up in the top part, but correct in the recipe itself. Your eyes are good!
I’ve made this yummy soup several times. However, I just realize you have the times for cooking backwards for high and low settings. Lol
Very good and really simple to make! I used a chuck roast that I had and used 2 bags of simply potatoes that were diced. My husband loved it!
Super easy & tastes great! I substitute canned diced potatoes(drained) & frozen chopped onions which makes it even easier
I want to double this vegetable beef soup recipe and would like to know what size crockpot I’ll need..
Shared this recipe on the Slow Cooker Recipes & Tips FB Group. It is a delicious recipe I have used repeatedly. Hoping to get you even more followers.
Hi Denise! I am glad you enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing it with others. I really appreciate the shares.
My husband loves vegetable beef soup. I can’t wait to try this out!
Getting ready to make this soup for the weekend football games! I would like to include barley. Has anyone done the same and if so did you substitute the barley for maybe potatoes?
Have made this 3 times. I use only 1 cup potatoes and add some red kidney beans for color. My husband s on a low sodium diet so I use all low sodium canned goods and broth. Still tastes great!!!
Can I omit the tomatoes and will it still taste good?
Does this recipe freeze well?
Everyone I shared this soup with LOVED it. I need to make it again soon. This is definitely a keeper. I didn’t have a can of white beans so i used a can of butter beans. I think I would have like the white beans better but I don’t think it really made a difference to the overall take. I believe this would freeze really well.
For this recipe, how many servings do you get?
Looks yummy! Pinned! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!

This is a great fall/winter meal. I can’t wait to try this in a few months.
Fantastic recipe! All my kids have been coming down with a cold. This soup is just what the doctor ordered. It was a snap to put together and turned out beautifully. Very flavorful and hearty and the meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender. This one’s going to be a regular in my recipe arsenal. Looking forward to trying some of your other recipes!
This was delicious. My husband loved it and even my 4 year old ate a whole bowl!
Huge hit with my family of 12! We loved it and plan to have it often. Thanks for the new favorite
Hi. This looks delicious! Thanks for doing what you do!
I have a question. Do you leave this in the crock pot until it’s gone (and if so, on what setting/temp) or do you put it in the refrigerator at night? I never know what to do with crockpot meals over night.
Put it in the fridge
Definitely put it in the fridge overnight. If you want you can put crock and all in the fridge, just make sure your crock has cooled off. Then when you want to heat it up, if you want to use your crock pot again, make sure your crock warms up to room temp before turning on so you don’t crack it.
sounds delish! I will be maKing this soon! I was just wondering why do u thaw the veggies first? I can’t wait to check out ur
How big is your slow cooker? I just made this and I had to omit the beans because mine would have overflowed, bummer! Hopefully it will be just as yummy without them, sure smells good!
I always love your recipes and this is perfect for our family. We all love veggies and soup is our staple in the fall and winter! And knowing that I can throw this in the crockpot, BONUS!!!
I cannot wait until it is cool enough to think about soup. I’d settle for somewhere in the 80s. Thanks for sharing on the #HomeMattersParty this week. I hope you join us next week.
Such a great classic! I pinned it to my slow cooker board.
Love love love slow cooker recipes. This hearty soup looks perfect for this fall and winter.
Simple and delicious comfort food. Love it! I would love it if you would share this great post today at our WIW Linky Party. I hope you can join us!
