{Crock Pot Vegetable Beef Soup}

There is just nothing better on a cold and rainy day than a hot bowl of soup. I grew up eating this soup weekly during the fall and winter and I have always loved it. I would say it is my favorite soup of all time. It is hearty and delicious. I am also proud to say that my 4 year old gobbled this up and asked for seconds! This child never eats veggies!! I was amazed!! If you are looking for a simple and delicious soup...this one is for you!



Crock Pot Vegetable Beef Soup
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef (or ground turkey or chicken)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 16 oz. organic mixed vegetables (mine has green beans, carrots, corn and peas)
  • 1 cup frozen baby lima beans
  • 24 oz. stewed tomatoes (I use canned tomatoes from my mother-in-law's garden)
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground beef and onions in a skillet until beef is fully cooked and onions are translucent. Place in Crock pot. Add remaining ingredients (except for salt and pepper.) Cook for 6-8 hours on low. Salt and pepper to taste before serving.

**Feel free to play around with the veggies in this soup! You could really use any veggies that you like!! Sometimes I add shredded cabbage to this as well! So good!


ENJOY!!!

  2. Made this last night for dinner. My mom has had a cold all week and I wanted something nourishing for her. This was really good with such simple ingredients. Definitely going to make again!

  3. What size crockpot did you use? Mine is a 5qt and looks to be too full, and I haven't even put the water in it yet. Is there anyway I can save it and cook it on the stove?

    1. My Crock Pot is a 6 qt. You could absolutely cook this on the stove! :)

  4. Made this last night with ground turkey that I had left over from some stuffed peppers. It was really good. My five year old complained at first because of all the veggies but when i told him he had to eat it or no dessert, he ate it and said how delicious it was :) I only did half the recipe and it was enough for me to have some for lunch today too.
