My husband and I were lifting the lid about every 15 minutes to taste the broth because it tasted so delicious to us. I slapped this recipe together yesterday for the first time and we will definitely be making this again and again. This experiment came out way better than expected. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. I love soup loaded with vegetables in a flavorful tomato based broth. I was looking to use up two thawed uncooked hamburger patties along with a bunch of fresh veggies I had in my fridge.

I love this recipe! Add more beef if it's not enough for you because there are lots of veggies but not enough beef. The flavors are great and it was a winner with my family. Definitely plan on making this with the cold weather coming in.

This is a great tasting soup. I made it Friday morning in the crockpot and when we returned from work, the house smelled delicious! I will make this again. Thanks for sharing.
