My husband gave this 5 stars. Very delicious! You can brown the beef a day ahead and assemble the next morning. Sometimes I'll add extra ground beef, onions and minced garlic or add ground red pepper for some spice.
A hot soup for those chilly nights. A loaf of crusty bread to dunk in your bowl - oh yeah! This is winter comfort food at this house - especially after a day at the ski hill. Sometimes I will throw some barley in for a change. Try it - I think you'll like it.
Good hearty soup for those cold and rainy days, and so easy to make, just pitch it all in the crock pot! I made the mistake of putting the noodles in and letting it go too long, and they totally dissolved. It still tasted fine, it was just thicker. Make sure you put them in no more than an hour before you're ready to serve. I also use whatever meat is cheap, doesn't have to be sirloin because it's gonna cook all day. From Family Circle 10/7/09
I love home-made vegetable beef soup, but cutting up all those vegetables is so time-consuming. One night I decided to take some short-cuts and the soup still turned out amazing. Using frozen and canned veggies, you get home-made soup with very little prep. Love it!
Brown up a batch of ground beef, then throw everything into the Crockpot! That's how easy this soup is. Imagine coming home to a hot and delicious soup after a cold day outdoors. Mmmm. Recipe from TOH.
Do you want stew and don't have the time to let it cook the old-fashioned way? Well, try this recipe and I don't think you'll be disappointed.As in all my recipes, adjust the seasonings according to your tastes. The time for prepping the vegetables is included.This will serve 3 slightly hungry adults. Submitted to " ZAAR " on April 29th. 2010.
Make it faster on top of the stove, or have it cook all day in a crockpot. Try trimming the fat by substituting gorund turkey for the round beef, or add more flavor by substituting goround pork or Bulk Italian Sausage.
This is a chowder that uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand, so it is quick and easy to throw together before work, and come home to on a nice fall evening. Relatively easy to double as well for extra large families or get togethers.
We love chicken chili, but our old recipe required a lot of prep and hours of simmering on the stove top. I put this together one morning in the crock pot, and we love coming home to a crock full of hot chili to enjoy with almost no prep!
Leftovers freeze well, or we love to put the leftovers right into small containers to enjoy for lunches throughout the week.
I make this during football season (I double the recipe, but I have a 7-qt crock pot). I prefer my chili with cut up stew meat rather than ground beef. I partially freeze the meat for easier cutting. Don't freak about the crushed corn chips....they just kinda "disappear" and serve as a thickening agent.
