Reviews for Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup
"This recipe is easy to assemble and the aroma in the kitchen is wonderful while it is cooking. Great for a winter day!!"
"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."
"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!"
"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!"
"Love this soup! I make it all the time. My young children love it too."
"Made it several times. It's one my husband has requested time and time again."
"Wow, this is a great soup recipe! Made a couple of changes. I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes, thyme instead of basil (I didn't have basil), and a dash of Trader Joe's Flower pepper in addition to the pepper in the recipe (out of concern for lack of flavor after reading one of the pervious reviews). I also used 3 cups of beef broth instead of water and boien. No flavor problems with the reciepe, for me."
"Great for freezing! My hubbys favorite!"
"I think I would add some chopped or shredded cabbage to the recipe"
"The recipe this magazine came in is tattered and worn from making this soup so many times. Our family of 7 loves it. I usually double it (or more) so we can have some leftovers for lunch. One of the best! Very forgiving recipe, too; You can add whatever you have on hand and it tastes delicious, either made in the slow-cooker or on top of the stove."
"Doubling this recipe fits nicely in a 6-qt crockpot. Some changes I made: I used crushed tomatoes (all I had on hand) and I didn't use celery (none in the cupboard). Everyone in my family of 5 said this was a keeper for sure. I will probably either add beef broth instead of water the next time or a few more beef cubes to make it a bit less tomato flavored. We found this to be very flavorful overall and I enjoyed it's simplicity as well. Served with fresh bread to round the meal."
"We were all looking forward to eating this soup. It smelled delicious. We were, however, very disappointed in the taste. It was bland and slightly bitter. I won't be making it again."
