SLOW COOKER

A great way to make your vegetable beef soup ahead and let it slow cook while you grab the kids from school or rush them to their activities and come back to dinner ready to be served! This is what you need and what you should do:

  • Beef: Since you are using a slow cooker, no need to spend too much money on expensive meat. Chuck Roast will work just fine. Brown or cook the beef in a skillet to give it some extra flavor, cut it up and at it into the slow cooker. This is optional but really recommended for the best flavor.
  • Vegetables: Dig up those veggies in your fridge and its time to use them up. Add in your favorite veggies. I recommend using fresh or frozen veggies.
  • Broth: Beef or veggie broth would work great. You could always use water if you don’t have any broth and add in some spices for flavor.
  • Sauce Base: Tomato sauce works best for a nice tomato base for this homemade vegetable beef soup. Don’t have tomato sauce, you can use some paste.
  • Cook: once everything is added into the slow cooker, add in some salt and pepper and then close it. Let is cook on low for 7-8 hours until everything is tender and juicy!

WHAT CUT OF BEEF IS BEST FOR SOUP

The best cuts of meat to use for any soup would be chuck roast or sirloin steak. They always result in tender juicy meat when cooked in soups. Chuck roast can be a bit tough to cook and needs time to get it tender so it is best to use it when you are using a slow cooker to cook your beef soup recipe. But the result is tender flaky melt in your mouth beef!

WHAT IS GOOD WITH VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP

For a more filling soup, you can add some pre-cooked rice to your homemade vegetable beef soup. There are other great options for you:

  • Sourdough bread or cornbread
  • Dinner rolls
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Side of salad
  • Crackers
  • Appetizers like mini pizza bites

CAN YOU FREEZE VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP

Absolutely. If you have leftovers, you can either store in a big and tightly sealed container to freeze or divide it up into smaller containers. Remove from the freezer when ready to eat and either allow to thaw in the fridge a night before or defrost in the microvae a bit before reheating on your stovetop. Frozen beef soup should last up until 6 months.

HOW DO YOU THICKEN VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP

The easiest way to thicken your homemade vegetable beef soup is to use some sort of flour. Use about 1-2 tablespoons of any flour you have handy, white or wheat. Mix or dissolve in about 1/2 cup of cold water and pour it into the soup. This will allow the soup to thicken as it bowls for another 5-10 minutes.

    Delicious soup! I decided not to use the tomato products, and used chuck stew meat so without the acid of the tomatoes it had to cook on the stove top a little longer in my dutch oven, but it was flavorful, hearty and I liked it so much I ate TOO much in one sitting. Will definitely make again.

    A delicious and easy to make vegetable beef soup recipe I have ever tried. Thanks for sharing this beef soup recipe with all of us.

  3. Making this now and I’m using tomato juice instead of beef broth, the beef broth is so salty taste. So I’m hoping turns out ok. I’m cooking beef , onions carrots and tomato juice for a couple hours, then adding potatoes celery and green beans and corn and maybe diced tomatoes, Cooking another 2 hours till all is tender. Hoping it’s scrumptious .
