Crockpot Vegetable Beef Soup

This savory soup is so simple to make thanks to the crockpot and it turns out so rich and flavorful! We loaded it with some of our favorite vegetables, but it's easy to mix and match to suit your tastes. Our recipe calls for stew meat to keep things easy, but you can swap in a chopped chuck roast or even ground beef if that's what you have on hand.

Equipment

  • Slow Cooker

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 medium carrots diced
  • 2 large Russet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 2 ribs celery diced
  • 14 ounces canned diced tomatoes
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 12 ounces frozen green beans
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil to the skillet.
  • Season the beef with the salt and pepper and then sear the meat, cooking in batches, until browned on all sides. Remove the beef to a crockpot.
  • Add the onions to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Remove to the crockpot.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients aside from the peas and parsley to the crockpot and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

Notes

To make this lower in carbs, swap the potatoes for turnips and reduce or omit the carrots and peas. 
Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. 
The beef bouillon is optional, but does help make for a richer, more savory broth.
