Followed the recipe to a T, even though I was apprehensive about using chicken broth in a beef soup. Glad I did as it had a pleasant taste. As I was cooking this I thought it might have too much water until I added the macaroni and of course it used up some of the liquid (I like a thick soup). Once the macaroni was cooked it was the perfect consistency. Could perhaps use a touch more seasoning of some sort, but overall a good stick to your ribs soup. Will make this again. Update: I adapted this recipe for the slow cooker...I used 4 cans of chicken broth and no water. Added a can of niblet corn with the juice. Added a small can of V8 and 2 packets of low salt beef bouillon. Everything else was the same, except for I did not add the macaroni until the end (boiled separate and added to soup so it wouldn't take up all the liquid). It tasted really good. I still like the original recipe because it's quicker but if you want to use your slow cooker it works good for that too. The only thing about my slow cooker method is that next time I think I will add some water as the macaroni still sucked up the broth even though I added it at the end.
