Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 8)
Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
I agree that this soup is a little heavy on the beef. I also found that during the cooking it lost a lot of liquid and I ended up adding more water and another beef bullion cube. The only change I made was to add more frozen veggies, since I like a lot of them in the soup. Next time I will make a few more changes: I will use probably only 1/2 pound of beef, 4 cups of beef broth instead of water and bullion, I will add only frozen corn and peas (the frozen carrots along with the sliced carrots made for a lot of orange), I'll probably add some fresh mushrooms, and I will omit the potatoes and serve over hot cooked egg noodles instead. This is a good basic recipe, but probably most people will need to cater it a bit to their own tastes.

This is almost as good as my mom's. The fresh veggies are key to the great taste and it's very simple to make. This version is a little heavy on the beef for my taste. Next time, I will substitute some of the actual meat for beef broth and add tomato juice (as opposed to just the diced tomatoes).

I think this is a good basic recipe but I did make changes. Here they are: (1) not a big slowcooker fan so I made this on the stovetop instead of in the slowcooker (2) used beef broth along w/the bouillon (3) cooked the meat, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes together w/the spices for about 1-1/2 hours on medium-low then added frozen peas, cooked for another 1/2 hour, then added canned green beans. It fabulous! Served with biscuits hot from the oven. Yummy! Thanks for the idea, Heather!

Thank you for the recipe. I really liked this soup, though I think my Mom's recipe for vegetable soup is better. Still, this was great because by the time I got home from work the soup was done and the house smelled wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

This was a very easy recipe to follow. I like that is has common basic ingredients. It is one of the lowest in sodium content that I have found and still very flavorful!! Thank you for sharing.
