  1. This was a very easy soup to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I thawed my mixed veggies. I cooked this on high for four hours but the veggies were still crunchy so I cooked it for another two hours. We all enjoyed this but I think it could have used more seasoning. I will make again but maybe add some garlic and maybe a beef boullion cube.
  2. This is a very simple recipe that tastes great. I make it often because my family really likes it. I usually substitute tomato juice for the V8 juice because that's what I have on hand and it's always tasty.
  3. This is reminiscent of my mom's "Kitchen Sink Stew", however, she didn't add a cream soup to hers. I love the added texture of the cream soup. The flavor of this soup is really great. I didn't have minced onion, so I used 1 tsp. of onion powder. That did the trick. Thanks so much for this keeper!
  4. This soup is definitely one that gets better as it sits..the flavors blend and deepen. I did however add 1 t. each marjoram and parsley, along with 1 1/2 t. garlic powder. The salt I used was seasoned, and I used 1 pkg of california veggie mix and another of mixed carrots, green beans and corn. It did take my slowcooker more like 6 hours on high to get the veg so it wasn't crunchy "raw" and was more like crunchy ala dente. I love the ease of this recipe and versatility of it. I think I will try making the ground beef into timy meat balls next time for some variety. I am sure some people may want to add pasta or rice for a heartier soup, but I thought it was thick and flavorful without.
