Slow Cooker Beef & Veggie Soup

Slow Cooker Beef & Veggie Soup

It’s officially soup season or at least it is at my house!  Is it at yours?

This is by far my favorite time of the year even with the hectic schedules and busy upcoming holiday season!  Not to mention, planning the best Tweeter-ific First Birthday Party…ever!  I may go overboard, but I’m okay with that!

In all of the busy life happenings around here lately that means one my favorite beef & veggie soup needed to be made even easier than normal!  What did I do?  Tossed it in the slow cooker!  That means little work on my part and by the end of the day we had a batch of warm cornbread and soup!

Slow Cooker Beef & Veggie Soup

This soup is my grandma’s recipe.  She used to bring it to our house this time of year when I was a kid in big pitchers.  She always used anything she had in the cupboards for it too!  I know that we all looked forward to it at our house and it was a happy day when grandma was bringing soup over.

She no longer makes it like she used to so now, I make it.  Then, my parents come over and my dad takes jars of it back home to enjoy that wonderful soup.

I know it seems strange to say this about food but it brings back memories each time I enjoy this soup.

When making this you will want to add salt and/or pepper to your taste.  We are not a salt family at all, so it’s very rare we will ever add it.  I just enjoy it poured over homemade cornbread!

      You can use canned too, just drain first.

    Have you ever made this soup without the wine? If I let it out how would it change the taste of the soup?

    Thank you,
    Katherine

      I typically always use it, but I don’t think it should change the taste too much if left out.

    My tip would be to not cook the beef. Why would you cook something you are going to throw in a pot and let cook for 8 to 10 more hours, especially ground meat. Just throw it all in. I will also replace the ground meat for beef tips, I’ve never heard of veggie beef soup with ground burger in it. Other than that, I think i’ll try it.

    Great tips!! I like cooking the beef first, but it can be done either way. I hope you enjoy it!
