This almost-effortless, slow-cooker soup will be something you will love to come home to after work or wherever! I got the original recipe from Campbells and made a few minor changes to suit our tastes.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Season beef with black pepper and coat with flour.
  2. Heat oil in skillet.
  3. Add beef and cook until browned.
  4. Place onions, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, garlic and thyme in slow cooker.
  5. Top with browned beef.
  6. Mix tomato paste, coffee and 1 cup broth, making sure tomato paste is dissolved.
  7. Pour coffee mixture and remaining broth into slow cooker.
  8. Cover and cook on LOW 8-10 hours or until done.
  9. I add salt at the end to suit our taste and stir well.
  10. Serve with sour cream and chopped green onions, if desired.
  11. Notes: You can also use lower sodium or certified organic beef broth in place of the regular beef broth.
  12. I also save time by buying meat that has already been cut into cubes. Sometimes I still have to cut the cubes smaller, though.
  13. I also cut the vegetables the night before to save prep time in the morning.

This is very good and easy! I made a few minor changes based on what I had on hand by using 1 can vegetable broth, 1 can canned tomatoes and 2 cups water (instead of beef broth and tomato paste). I also only used one onion - personal taste and a lot of cabbage. Good soup for a busy day! Thanks for sharing!
