This was a great recipe as a foundation and that is why I gave it 5 stars. The changes I made were the following: I used diced tomatoes, an extra half pound of crab, I used jumbo lump crab and a one pound bag of Green Giant mixed vegetables instead of the individual carrots and corn. I also did add a bit more of the Old Bay just because I love it SPICY!!! ENJOY with a nice cold brew!!
This didn't have enough flavor for us and I did add more spices. Nice low cal. meal, thanks for sharing.
I grew up in Baltimore and worked on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in a crab house for 4 years. This recipe is very close to what we served there. The Old Bay is essential and I doubled the amount because we like it spicy!
This is a great recipe! I did change it a little though. I added fresh steamed crablegs from the grocery store.. Gives it more of the crab taste.. I also axed the lima beans, but added green beans. I used can veggies(corn, Green beans) and added whilte potatoes (peel them 1st). I used fresh celery and fresh carrots, And about 2 tablespoons more of old bay. WOW.. Was it good! Just let it cook about an hour to get the flavors going. But it was great!
The best and easiest crab soup recipe I've found. I do use frozen mixed vegetables and add about a tablespoon more Old Bay, but that is personal preference. Excellent soup!!
Fabulous recipe from a native Marylander!! I made a few variations...used mixed veggies, an extra can of sweet corn, organic beef broth and added the crab meat with the rest of the ingredients. I let it all simmer for about 25-30 minutes to allow the Old Bay to kick in! Would definitely make again!
Baltimore here!! Made this soup today with leftover crabs. What a soup!!! Boiled a beef shank bone,cut it up, added cabbage and the rest is history.This soup is Baltimore!
This was the first soup recipe that I ever made from scratch. My husband and I really enjoyed it. I did make some changes to the recipe. I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, a can of vegetable brooth, one small chopped onion and 4 small cubed potatoes. On other people's recommendation I also used 2 tbsp's of Old Bay. This gave it quite a kick but it is GOOD.
