Rich and Hearty Crock Pot Vegetable Beef Soup

"This soup recipe was nabbed from another recipe site, and then modifed by me. It makes a lovely, rich and fulfilling soup, one of my all time favorite crockpot dishes! The beauty of it is it makes a delightfully satisfying vegetable soup, so feel free to leave out the beef, if you prefer. I added the cayenne pepper and hot sauce, which gives it a nice kick (you can also use Spicy V8 Juice instead of the tomatoe juice, and then omit the cayenne pepper and hot sauce)."

    This had a great flavor and was easy to make and I love to use my crock pot - like other people reviewing this recipe, I too was not thrilled about using the soup mix and next time will probably just use my own combination of herbs and spices.

    This soup has a really good taste. I liked the use of the tomato juice and the small amount of hot sauce made a difference! This was the first time I had used a "Soup Starter" package...I guess I prefer adding and controlling the herbs and seasonings myself. I guess the starter is quick and convenient, but I prefer not using it. It does make a hearty soup and I like the convenience of using the Crockpot. Thanks for a good recipe!


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
