Vegetable Beef Soup (Crockpot)

Total Time
8hrs 15mins

The best vegetable beef soup I have ever had. I have been making this for over 20 years and it is that perfect soup to warm your soul. It is very hearty and filling, but very low in fat and good for you. It cooks all day in the crockpot, so you have very little work to do. Enjoy it as much as I do! I prefer to use fresh green beans in the soup, but if you want to use frozen that is fine. I have one friend who throws in an 10 oz pks of frozen mixed veggie, but I like the fresh veggies better. Cooking time reflects how long it needs to be in the crockpot.

Ingredients Nutrition

Very good soup! Followed recipe mostly as it called, except didn't have fresh green beans, used 1 can green beans. You must cook on high for at least 7 hours to get all veggies cooked through and soft, and you must cook on high. Served these with grilled cheeses, and the whole family of 5 thouroughly enjoyed!! This recipe is in my cook book to stay.

It's cooking in the crockpot now. I put it on high because I want it in about 5 hrs. We'll see. Til then I tasted the broth and its fabulous. I made a few changes out of necessity: instead of 3 cups of water I used 2 c. College Inn bold tender beef stock(it was facing an outdate) and 1 c. Water in place of 4 bullion cubes and 3 c. Water, home canned qt. tomatoes, and my crockpot is so full that I didn't have room for the tomato soup and 1can water. I'm pretty sure my crockpot is 6 qts. Can't wait til 6:00 to try it. More later
