This recipe is amazingly good! My husband never picks up his bowl and drinks the rest of the broth in any soup I make. Some would find this horrible table manners, but I found it to be quite the compliment! The kids enjoyed it too. It makes enough for us to have leftovers the next night, and when a dish is this good, I love cooking once and eating twice! This is a wonderful, comforting, flavorful soup. For the potatoes, I used baby dutch potatoes, and cut them up into cubes. No need to peel. They worked out great!
This was super easy and I double the liquids to place in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. All I did was brown the meat and sauté the vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker. This soup has a lot of flavor. I made it for my dad after he was discharged from the hospital. Very comforting. I did double the garlic since my family grows garlic and doubling it never hurts anyone. This goes well with a hearty chunk of Italian bread.
Smells so good while it's cooking and tastes delicious! Will put this recipe in my soup rotation for the cold weather season!
This was a delicious soup! The best thing about a good pot soup is that we can be 'creative', in order to suit our personal tastes. I took the liberty to add in 2 ribs of celery, which I cut into 1" diagonal pieces. I used "Mrs. Dash" salt-free seasoning. I cooked the soup with 1/4 C. chopped fresh Italian parsley (stems & all) for lots of flavor. I like potatoes, but I never liked them in soups.... so I cooked-up some whole wheat pasta shells (separately), and served the soup in individual bowls over the pasta. I topped each bowl with a sprinkle of chopped Italian parsley, and some grated Parmesan cheese on top..
Easy to make and delicious. Did not have seasoning blend, so used a dash of each parsley, thyme, oregano, basil, and sage. Also added the peppers and carrots in with the potatoes, so they were not too mushy. A definite make again.
Love the soup the whole house smelled wonderful. I don't like green peppers so change to yellow pepper .
Always looking for a new recipe for soups or stews, and found this one.. yahoo! It is wonderful, an will make this often. I added a handful of quick cooking barley at the end of the cooking time to thicken the soup into more of a stew, and this made it even better. Oh, I used the Burgundy, not the broth.
