Okay - I know it means an extra step but I first did a quick-fry w/ the beef in a LITTLE olive oil and some all-season salt. Then, I used 2 cans of low sodium beef broth instead of the water/bullion cubes. I also ommitted the salt and used half the basil. Finally, I added the frozen veggies during the last hour and a half of cooking (I didn't want them to get mushy by cooking all day) AND a small handful of macaroni noodles. Thick but very good! Served with dinner rolls and it was a nice "autumn" dinner. Thanks! Read More

Loved this! Be sure to use a 5-quart slow cooker and sub in 6 cups of water with 6 cubes of bouillon but skip the salt and this will be the best vegetable soup you ever had! Read More

This soup was delicious. I used 3 cups of water instead of two and also omitted the salt. I used crushed tomatoes w/ basil instead of the tablespoon of basil and it was wonderful. Thanks for submitting. I will be using this again Read More

This is a very hearty soup. Great things come to those who wait. I followed the recipe as written however I will omit the salt and cut back on the bullion the next time I prepare it. It was a bit salty for my taste but the meat was so tender it just melt in my mouth. What a great meal to come home to and warm up with! Read More

This was so easy and good. I used chicken instead of beef. I did use all the cubes but did not add any salt. I also added some canned green beans and corn. Will make again! Read More

I am usually a wipeout when it comes to cooking with a crockpot. I was surprised and relieved at how well this stew turned out. Based on other reviews I reduced the recipe down to 5 bouillon cubes. This is a great stew for when it is cold outside! Read More
