Reviews for Pork Vegetable Soup
"Will make again."
"Made this tonight at a relatives house, so I didn't have the bay leaves or thyme; but it was delicious!! I will definitely make this again at home. Very easy and very yummy!"
"This is one of my favorite crock pot recipes! I've used different types of beer (whatever I had on hand) and it has always turned out delicious! It is a unique and yummy change from boring old beef stew. :)"
"We loved the flavor and have discussed the comments of those that did not like it. If they used a heavy or dark beer instead of the light it COULD make this bitter. MAYBE that is their problem. We found it very flavorful and WILL make it again."
"Yummy and easy!"
"What a great soup/stew! Made this yesterday and it turned out wonderful! I did make a few changes...did not put in the tapioca and I used my own canned tomatoes. I also used pork spare ribs as that is what I had on hand. Cut the meat into cubes from the bone and then put in some bones with meat still on. Since my crock pot was a bigger size, I doubled the recipe. This will definitely go in the "keeper" box!"
"LOVE this stew! I was excited when the weather got cold just so I could make it again. Very filling, amazing blend of spices/flavors, and my husband and I both loved it."
"Followed the recipe to a T....will not make again....agree with maggieaw...nasty horrible soup"
"NOTHING NASTY ABOUT THIS"
