What a treat to come home from work and have this savory soup ready to eat. It's a nice traditional beef soup with old-fashioned goodness. We pair it with crusty rolls topped with melted mozzarella cheese. -- Heather Thurmeier, Pense, Saskatchewan

Ilove this soup! It's my favorite vegtable beef soup. I disagree that it's heavy on the meat-I use 2 pounds of round steak when I make it.I add 4 cups of water,minced garlic, pinch of sugar, fresh minced parsley and a bay leaf.Some worcestershire sauce and a squirt of ketchup too. So delicious....really hits the spot on cold winter nights. Read More

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. Read More

This is a fantastic recipe! I made it for the first time today with just a few changes (more like tweaks!). First, I only used 1/2 an onion due to our taste preferences. I used 2 cans of beef broth instead of the bullion and water, but I still had to add water to cover all the veggies! I also threw in a little garlic, thyme, and bay leaf, used a lot more pepper, and added about a cup of tomato juice to give the base a little more oomph. Because of the extra tomato, I put in about 1/4 teaspoon of sugar to round out the tartness. This was sooooooo good, my husband is still raving about it! Thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I will definitely make it again! Read More

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! Read More

This soup was excellent. I like a tomato based vegetable soup so instead of 3 cups water, I used 1 cup water and 2 cups V8 tomato juice. For sure I'll make this again. Read More

This was excellent. I made it as written and my husband and I were both very happy campers. I can never go back to eating tinned beef soups again. This soup was so easy to make and also very healthy. Thanks for posting! Read More
