This is a very yummy and comforting soup. It reminds me very much of the beef vegetable soup that my grandmother makes, and since she doesn't use a recipe, this is probably the closest I will get. I have found that substituting ground sausage for the ground beef and carrot juice for the V8 also works. I would also note that my recipe says to cook on low for 9-11 hours. I am sure it would be ok as directed in this recipe, but it is also ok to leave in on low for longer, as that can be helpful sometimes too.

Delicious! I cooked it on low for 4 hours and then the cooker switched to warm for several more hours and it was great -- even after being in the cooker for 12 hours (4 hours on low and the rest on warm). Thanks iluvmythomas for sharing -- this is on my list of busy weekday meals that are delicious, filling and can wait.
