Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

Old Fashioned Vegetable Beef Soup, just like mom (or the diner) always made it. This simple recipe can be made in the slow cooker or on the stovetop and it will warm both your belly and your heart!

Remember the eighties when every single restaurant ever had Vegetable Beef Soup on the menu?  Our favorite throw-back steak house still offers it.  Along with wood paneling and a "Six Pound Challenge."  Well, anyway, this is that soup.  But made easy with a slow cooker! Mmmmmm.

I don't peel my potatoes.  The skin is full of nutrients and it just adds more work, so I can't figure why I would spend my time doing this!  There are much better things to do - like nap. Hahahaha, I have five kids.  I don't nap either.

If you have fresh tomatoes, that's awesome.  If you don't, canned works just as well.  Don't stress over this.  Life has too many stressors already!

Same goes for the rest of the veggies - canned, frozen, fresh, a mix of whatever's on hand is perfectly alright!  Here I used fresh tomato and carrot, but frozen corn and green beans!

  2. Hi April, Just saw your recipe for the Vegetable Beef Soup. I do have a question or more of a concern. While cooking that long does the veggies get mushy? I think I may cook the beef in the beef stock for a few hours then add the veggies. Just wandering cause it is cold here in Va. and I'm looking for something warm to fix. Thanks for any help you can give me. :)
