Slow Cooker Beef & Vegetable Soup

"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."

Ready In:
8hrs 15mins




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

  1. 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!
