Crock Pot Beef Lentil Soup

This recipe was printed in our local paper. I was looking for recipes to use the soup bones I got when purchasing a side of beef from our local farmer. This is thick and rich and so easy to toss in the crock pot. Set your bread-maker to be ready when the soup is done, and dinner is served!

Thoroughly enjoyed this soup. I cooked in my electronic pressure cooker instead & it came out very tasty. I added some kale & increased the tomatoes. Sub'd beef broth for the water/bouillon & cut back the salt. Great soup, thanks for sharing.

Delicious! I never use bouillon, so I used 2 cans of beef broth and one of chicken broth. Since the beef broth was not low-sodium, I skipped the added salt. I added a couple of bay leaves and a bit of dried thyme. I also left out the cabbage, since I didn't think it needed the extra bulk. It was really delicious! This is a keeper! Made for My Three Chefs Fall 2009.
