The Best Vegetable Beef Soup September 18, 2020|Tana|Taste and See Recipes The Best Vegetable Beef Soup! Fall is the best time of the year for soup. We had a few cold days sweep through Colorado last week and my taste buds craved beef soup. It is savory and absolutely delicious on a cold, rainy day. I have just finished up canning season as well! So my basement is FULL of fresh veggies just waiting to be used. (If you are interested in learning how to can, check out my tutorials here.) But, if you are not a canner, don't worry! You can still grab all these fresh veggies at the farmers market or the grocery store. The Best Vegetable Beef Soup! Ingredients 2 lbs ground beef or beef stew meat 1/2 cup onion, chopped 3 garlic cloves, chopped 4 cups beef broth or bone broth 4 cups crushed tomatoes 2 cups carrots, sliced 2 cups sweet corn, drained 2 cups green beans, drained 3 medium potatoes, diced 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin Method Grab your crockpot and plug it in on your counter. Brown the beef stew meat or ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. I like to add a dash of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder to the meat for flavor. Make sure the stew meat is browned on every side before adding it to the crock pot. If you are using ground beef make sure to cook it all the way through, drain the grease off, then add it to the crock pot. Grab an onion and rough chop half of it or more if you love onion and add it to the crock pot. Crush 3 garlic cloves on a cutting board, peel away the skins and cut out any bad spots. Add them to the crock pot as well. Add the broth and all the veggies! Side note, I can tomatoes with roasted chilis in them. They make the soup DELICIOUS! You can also add some rotel, or throw in a couple of the little cans of diced green chilis. You will be glad you did! Last, add the salt, chili powder and cumin! If you love black pepper, throw some of it in too! Once you have all the ingredients in the crock pot, turn to low and let it cook all day! My crock pot is one of my favorite things this time of the year. We have started homeschool and sports and the garden is still in need of care so the days get busy. Having dinner done ahead of time makes for a less stressful evening! I can cook my meat and throw all the ingredients into the crockpot in about 20 minutes and dinner is done! You can also use your instant pot for this recipe! Turn your pot to sauté and add a little oil to the bottom. Brown your meat on all sides or cook the hamburger through and drain the grease. Add all of the ingredients to the instant pot once the meat is finished cooking. Once you have all the ingredients in the pot, put the lid on and press "slow cook". Set the timer for 8 hours and it will automatically start! If you are later than 8 hours the instant pot will switch to "keep warm" so the soup will still be warm when you are ready to eat! I hope you enjoy! Download Recipe About Me!
