We don't get many cold days in Florida, but when we do, this soup really hits the spot. It can be spiced up if desired by adding a pinch (or more, your call) of dried hot pepper flakes. Easy to prep and cooks in the crock pot while I do other things. Great with hot crusty garlic bread or corn bread and I serve with fruit salad or canned peaches on the side.

My review is more of a warning of what not to do since, AS I MADE IT, it was only a solid "okay." The taste was still good (hence the 5 stars) but the consistency was gross. I have had a container of dried soup greens in my pantry for months. Whatever possessed me to buy them in the first place is beyond me. So, I did decide to use them on this recipe. Again, totally NOT this recipe's fault but YUCK YUCK YUCK!! Since the taste was still good (looking beyond the nasty consistency), made following the recipe, this soup would be every bit worthy of the 5 stars. Note to self: don't ever buy dried soup greens again!!!!

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.

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.
