Reviews for Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup
"As a Volunteer Field Editor, I enjoy testing recipes. This soup was so tasty, there was not a drop left in the pot after dinner. Even, my daughter who does not eat anything with onions, had a second helping. It comes together easily and cooks while you do something else! Today, I used ground beef because that's what I had in the freezer, but I've made it as per recipe as well. The only thing a bit misleading is the title. I almost couldn't find this recipe, when looking today because I thought it was called Beef Vegetable so that's what I searched for- may miss some reviews because it doesn't come up in the search if you're looking for one including beef."
"This does look delicious, can't wait too try. I do have a question, Is the cook time correct? It just seems like a lot 8-10hrs. on HIGH, then add veggies and cook another 2hrs.. Thanks for any help you can give me. :). I rated this a 1 cause I have not made or tried this yet."
"Loved this soup and it's so easy to make. The only change I made was that I used beef stew meat instead of steak. Will definitely make this again and again and then yet again! I found it very tasty and not at all bland. It has a permanent place in my recipe box."
"Given that the first ingredient in this recipe is '1 pound beef top round steak', I find the title a little inaccurate."
"This was delicious, though I did modify a bit. I used 4c organic low sodium beef broth & put in more carrots & potatoes instead of mixed veggies, I used frozen spinach, corn, & cut bean, along with dried Kale powder. This increased the fiber & nutrient content & made a few additional servings. Stuck with the same seasonings though & it was a very good hearty soup. I will make it again."
"One of our favorite winter meals!"
"I've been making this recipe for years and it's still my favorite vegetable soup recipe. Great flavor and it's so easy!"
"Yum! Made this for dinner this past weekend. My first time making a vegetable soup. My changes: I pre-cut the meat the night before and seasoned it with Tastefully Simple seasoning salt and garlic powder and I let it refrigerate overnight. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and red potatoes. Lastly, I used 6 cups of low-sodium beef broth instead of the water/bouillon. I also (sort of) doubled the batch, so when I was done adding everything to my 6-Qt slow cooker, there was absolutely no room to add the frozen mixed veggies for the last hour. We honestly didn't miss it.The whole family (and a couple friends that were visiting) loved it! I will make it again. My Mom thinks adding diced rutabaga might add to the flavor as well."
"This is one of our favorites..pair w/ corn bread and you have a wonderful winter meal..that cooked while you were away!"
