What a treat to come home from work and have this savory soup ready to eat. It's a nice traditional beef soup with old-fashioned goodness. We pair it with crusty rolls topped with melted mozzarella cheese. — Heather Thurmeier, Pense, Saskatchewan

"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."

"Very tasty nutritous meal that takes very little prep time. Great to put in the slow cooker on a cold morning, if you want to come home to a wonderful smelling dinner!"

"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."

"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."
