Easy Vegetable Soup II
January 05, 2013

The recipe was okay, the cooking process was a little frustrating to be honest. Not trying to bash, but I followed the steps as they were written, filled the water just to cover the meat as written and boiling it for 30 minutes on high heat, reduces your liquids, as it did mine. I could see, bringing it to a boil and reducing the temp for a bit, but to hard boil not just one round of 30 minutes, but 2 rounds was a bit much, but I kept at the directions as written and by the time I got to step 3, there was not much to drain off. I was consistantly adding water to bring the water amount over the meat and veggies. By the time I did get to step 3, the potatoes render down to partily mush, and I originally opened a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and used half but then ended up adding the entire contents of the can. This recipe to me would be a better slow cooker recipe then the steps it took to get to the end result. While it reminds me of my moms old fashion vegetable soup, we were always adding hot pepper sauce and spices to each bowl way back when, as this is what we did in the end of this recipe too. I'd try again only to be placed in a slow cooker and adding garlic, oregano, basil, possibly a bay leaf and some heat.
