This slow cooker beef and vegetable soup is a nice flavorful, hearty meal. It is actually raining here in Southern California today. It is our first real rain of the season. When it is cold and wet, I love to serve hot bowls of soup for dinner. This slow cooker soup is simple to put together with the help of ground beef, frozen vegetables, and a slow cooker. You can easily use fresh vegetables too if they are available, but frozen is great if you do not have a lot of time.
This vegetable soup can be easily modified by adding different vegetables. It does require about 15 minutes of preparation before the cooker can be turned on, so be sure to allow time for browning the beef and cutting the potatoes. (You can do both the night before if you refrigerate them and soak the potatoes in water)
By the way, if you have not tried using a slow cooker liner, I highly recommend it as they are great for easy cleanups later.
It starts with a skillet, ground beef and onion.
While meat is browning, you prepare the potatoes,
When beef is brown, you add the potatoes and a bag of frozen vegetables and some seasonings.
When it is finished you will have a wonderful beef vegetable soup. Also, your house will smell amazing because there is nothing like something cooking on the stove to make a home comforting and welcoming.
It’s a wonderful tasting hearty soup.
So good and so easy!
